But then, when you really get right down to it, if I was Trump, I would want to leave the country when Michael Cohen was testifying in public, too.
PUBLIC WARNING: After Michael Cohen has finished testifying, do NOT play a drinking game where you have a shot after each time Trump's spokesperson says the phrase, "The White House denies." Or says "Michael Cohen is a convicted liar." Public drunkenness is a crime and dangerous.
Note: Mr. Cohen is indeed a convicted liar. The difference between him and his former client on this matter is therefore important and pronounced: Trump has not yet been convicted. Merely established, repeatedly, 8,718 times over the past two years at last count by the Washington Post. On the other hand, the audio tapes that Robert Mueller has confiscated and the documentation and corroborating evidence the Special Counsel has and which Cohen himself is expected to provide at the hearing has neither been convicted of anything nor lied.
It's also worth clarifying the reality that court ethics say that if a person lies under oath about one thing, one may presume is lying about everything. However, realty is that just because one may “presume” someone is lying about everything doesn’t mean they are. So, saying, “You have lied under oath and that means I presume you are lying today” is Totally Different from saying “You have lied under oath and that means you are lying.” Further, if Republicans want to presume that Cohen is lying about "everything," then they must therefore presume that "everything" includes when he previously defended Trump under oath as having done nothing wrong.
Again: no drinking games. Be safe...
