Yes, it was all laid bare today. Everyone has waited for two years for the Mueller report but that is a very narrow investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. The hope has been that it would be enough to bring the Trump crowd to justice and remove them from government. That was always a long shot.
In the broader context Cohen turned the lights on the dirty rooms of the Trump darkness. With nothing to lose that isn’t already gone he was believable but, even with that, he has brought the evidence of lies and complete disregard for all legal standards down on Trump and all around him.
As I’ve said, in my own small piece on today, the sight of Republican officials screaming wildly and throwing themselves to destruction for a criminal liar and bigot should be the end of that party.
I expect we may begin to see resignations beginning shortly. If you are not willing to commit suicide for an idiot who doesn’t care then you need to get off the sinking boat. A lot of very serious thinking should be going on now with important family discussions about how to salvage a life from the Republican self immolation.
