House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) let Michael Cohen know that he wasn’t dealing with a lot of double-talk when it came time for him to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth, to Congress.
This is what Chairman Cummings told the press, “I told him, ‘If you come here and lie, I’ll nail you to the cross.’”
Mind you, it wouldn’t’ve been one of those crosses next to Jesus that Cohen would’ve been nailed on.
Cohen would’ve been nailed to one of those Vlad the Dracula crosses where folks also got impaled and went through worse hell than Jesus and those two sinners next to him could even think about going through.
After all, Cohen was already dancing on a bed of hot coals. His previous lies to Congress, allegedly on the behalf of Donald Trump, have gotten him a three-year prison sentence in the federal pen. So yeah, that would have been bad if Cohen had lied again.
Not only would he have gotten a longer prison sentence, but he would’ve been sent to one of those ol’ time prisons where they have the gun line that runs from shack to shack. It would’ve been bad stuff, bad stuff.
