Recent evidence could completely throw out case against Trump

With Biden’s DOJ doing everything they can to lock up Trump, people are starting to wonder what is really going on. And new developments might unravel all of the Left’s plans.

Because recent evidence could completely throw out their case against Trump.

In a strongly worded letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, House Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN) called for swift action on multiple criminal referrals issued against Michael Cohen, the former attorney for Donald Trump.

Emmer’s demand highlights the ongoing tensions and accusations of political bias within the justice system, particularly concerning the treatment of individuals associated with Trump.

“Michael D. Cohen has proven to be a pathological liar, particularly to Congress,” Emmer wrote, emphasizing Cohen’s history of deceit and perjury.

Emmer’s letter urges the Department of Justice (DOJ) to act on referrals from various Congressional committees, underscoring the gravity of Cohen’s alleged offenses.

Cohen, who once served as Trump’s personal attorney, pled guilty in 2018 to lying to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

His testimony has since been scrutinized, leading to at least three separate criminal referrals by Republicans on the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees and the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

These referrals accuse Cohen of perjury and making false statements during a Congressional hearing and deposition.

Emmer’s letter to Garland details specific instances of Cohen’s alleged dishonesty.

During his testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on February 27, 2019, Cohen repeatedly claimed he did not seek employment in the Trump White House.

However, evidence from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York contradicts this claim, revealing that Cohen privately expressed expectations of being given a prominent role in the new administration.

“Mr. Cohen’s lie to Congress was confirmed when a witness at Trump’s ongoing New York City trial gave a firsthand account of Mr. Cohen’s rage in December 2015 about not receiving a job in the Trump administration,” Emmer noted.

Further complicating Cohen’s credibility, Emmer pointed out that during recent testimony at Trump’s New York City trial, Cohen admitted under oath that he had discussed potential roles in the Trump White House with various individuals.

Cohen confessed that he “would have liked to be considered” for the Chief of Staff role, revealing his ambitions were driven by ego.

Additionally, during his May 20 testimony, Cohen admitted to stealing from the Trump Organization, a significant felony that raises questions about his integrity as a witness.

Emmer highlighted the irony of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg relying on Cohen as a star witness against Trump, despite Cohen’s history of lying under oath and admitted theft.

“In other words, the prosecution’s star witness admitted to a more significant felony than what the prosecution has charged for President Trump with,” Emmer wrote, criticizing the apparent double standards in the legal proceedings.

Emmer’s letter cites specific U.S. Code sections to underline the legal basis for prosecuting Cohen. Under 18 USC Section 1001, it is a crime to “knowingly and willfully” make any “material false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation” in any investigation under Congressional authority.

Additionally, 18 USC Section 1621 defines perjury as “willfully” asserting any material matter believed to be false after taking an oath to testify truthfully.

Given the overwhelming evidence against Cohen, his history as a convicted liar, and his admission to theft, Emmer called on the DOJ to take immediate action on the criminal referrals submitted by Congressional committees.

He emphasized that failing to prosecute Cohen undermines the integrity of the justice system and suggests a political bias against Trump and his associates.

Many Americans argue that the aggressive prosecution of Trump and his allies contrasts sharply with the leniency shown towards figures like Cohen.

This perceived double standard fuels ongoing debates about the fairness and impartiality of federal law enforcement agencies.
