Right now AOC is speaking live at the Cohen hearing.

She is asking about Trump’s golf courses. Deflating the value of his courses to lower his property taxes.

“How did he do this?” Cohen replied he submitted a lower value to the taxing authorities when submitting a value.

The back and forth is riviting.

She demonstrated just how clueless she is about real estate tax appraisals and well, everything. It's obvious she has never owned a piece of real estate.

Unfortunately, there are many out there that know just about as much as she does and will run with that thinking she scored major points against Trump.

I don't think it is unless he paid with campaign finance money. Cohen said it came from his trust account. I imagine Trump operates out of a trust for a lot of his personal stuff.

Cohen is just a disgruntled ex-employee that is colluding with the dems to bring Trump down hoping to improve the chances he can increase the value of and cash in on a book or movie deal. He will probably use his testimony and other assistance to avoid further charges or minimize his time in prison.

yep that is what i was thinking, if its from a trust, then its not from campaign money.. wonder what the trust manager rules on its existence say.

isnt cohen still awaiting sentencing or trial in the state of new york for another crime? I really have not paid him much attention.
today he sounded like a whining rat fink crook . sure hope he gets a normal harsh prison, vice a club med experience

lying to congress IMO is thin as a saltine...we have seen hundreds of people lie to congress in the last 9 years....yet only three or four get a prison sentence?

Given the Democratic play book, Trump can't win this one. Since he used non-campaign money, they argue the hush money was intended to benefit the campaign and should therefore have been reported as a campaign expense. Had he used campaign funds, they would argue he used campaign funds for a personal matter.

Don't look for intellectual consistency. It's not there.

After receiving praise for her questioning of Michael Cohen during his testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attributed her skills to years spent tending bars and waiting on tables.

She just took advantage of her panel time to make a speech about Trump, then asked a question right at the end and ignored the answer.

However, she demonstrated a complete and utter ignorance about the subject matter by the questions she asked and the insinuations she made.

First time in 132 years that the temperature never reached 70 degrees in February in LA. This must really upset the Green New Deal folks.

Upset at creepy guy who took a picture of her eating a burger after talking about eating less meat to save the planet from global warming. See previous post on page before.
