Trump’s former attorney general Michael Cohen last week pleaded guilty to making false statements to the Senate Intelligence Committee. Cohen’s move was nothing short of a “bombshell.” It has the potential to take down the Trump administration ultimately.
Trump tweeted about the matter, calling Cohen a Judas. He said that Cohen lied for this outcome and should serve a complete sentence. The underlying political discernment of those tweets will cause debates for some time. Regardless, Trump proved that he is a man with nothing to worry about.
Author and commentator Paul Sperry analyzed the so far availed information about the indictments. Sperry wrote that the details from the Cohen filings are exculpatory for the President, regardless of Cohen’s guilt admission. This is contrary to the en vogue media theory. The theory claims that Cohen’s guilty plea is finally the falling domino that will crumble the entire Trump administration.
“The nine-page charging document filed with the plea deal suggests that the special counsel is using the Moscow tower talks to connect Trump to Russia,” Sperry wrote.
He added that congressional investigators with Senate and House committees spearheading inquiries on the case provided critical information. The investigators told RealClearInvestigations that it appeared like Mueller kept information from the court that might exonerate Trump. They made their assessment in regards to the charging document referred to as a statement of criminal information. Also, the statement includes a link to Russian President Vladimir Putin in the indictment.
Page seven of the state of criminal investigation filed against Cohen indicates that Cohen attempted to email Putin severally. However, Mueller who personally signed the statement omitted the fact that Cohen had no direct points of contact at the Kremlin. This factor forced Cohen to send emails to a general press mailbox.
According to sources familiar with these emails, the omitted information undermines the theory of a “back channel.” Therefore, it colludes with the special counsel’s case.
Whether or not the claims are true remains to be seen. Nonetheless, it is evident that no one is fully aware of all the information the special counsel possesses.
