The Deathbed Confession / Declaration is as old as The Cross,
and is almost always universally authentic and believed. No matter
what a man has done, Truth comes when he has nothing left to lose.
When given the chance at redemption or absolution, most men will
take it for the people he leaves behind. Sociopaths the exception.
Was he an honest lawyer with good reputation before Trump ? If
so, Trump would not have hired,and then kept for ten years. He was
hired to lie for and protect Trump and his business dealings. He
was as loyal and good at that job as Sarah Hucksterbee Sanders is
at hers. Unlike say…Rex Tillman, Gen. Kelly, and Jeff Sessions. In
the case of Cohen(and Gen Kelly) the death can be spiritual, not
literal. To have your reputation destroyed, shame brought on family,
lose respect of family,friends, the American people, a criminal record
and prison, high debt. A man wants to atone, apologize, make amends.
The Truth is sometimes the only way. He brought documents to support
his claims, to say nothing about the mountain of documents, and taped
phone conversations in the hands of FBI and DOJ.
My favorite quotes or moments :
1. You ( Republicans who continue to support and enable Trump) are
doing the same things I have done for ten years. You may suffer
the same fate !
2. Donald Trump is a racist, a con man, and a cheat ! ( Yes, nothing new
here. Left out pathological liar, porn star adulterer, traitor, Lindsey
Graham’s “jackass” etc.).
3. Mark Meadows (R) NC trotting out a lone black female hired by Trump
somewhere in the administration…to prove he was not a racist. To
use a black woman as a prop in that situation was one of the most
racist things I have ever seen in politics. The dozens of late night jokes
and serious commentary did address that.
4. When asked why the (R) on the committee did not attempt to defend
any of the accusations, one said that they were ” indefensible “. Only
thing they could do was call him a liar. Yes, a liar in the service of a con man who he once was mesmerized by, as are 38% of the U.S. population, and 85% or more of Republicans !!!.
