Cohen Betrayed: Tom Arnold Leaks Phone Call Where Former Trump Attorney Admits To More Lies

President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has backtracked in a recent recorded phone call, claiming he's not actually guilty for crimes he pleaded guilty to.

In a conversation with Trump-hating provocateur Tom Arnold, Cohen said that he hadn't evaded taxes, and that a criminal charge linked to his home-equity line of credit was "a lie," according to the Wall Street Journal.

Arnold recorded Cohen without his knowledge for approximately 36 minutes during a March 25 phone call, which Arnold provided to the Journal.

"There is no tax evasion," said Cohen on the call. "And the Heloc? I have an 18% loan-to-value on my home. How could there be a Heloc issue? How? Right?…It’s a lie."

In the 36-minute recording, Messrs. Cohen and Arnold covered a range of issues, from the legal troubles of former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti to Mr. Trump’s affinity for the leader of North Korea.

Mr. Arnold said he made the recording without Mr. Cohen’s knowledge. Mr. Cohen has himself surreptitiously recorded conversations. During a raid of his home, office and hotel room in April 2018, the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized recordings the lawyer made while talking to journalists, political allies, and others, including Mr. Trump. During the call last month, Mr. Arnold praised Mr. Cohen for standing against the president. “You are a hero and you’re not alone,” Mr. Arnold said. -Wall Street Journal

Cohen tells Arnold he pleaded guilty in August because "they had me on campaign finance," while prosecutors were also targeting his wife - whose name some of the $2.4 million in interest payments he received from loans was deposited, New York federal prosecutors wrote in a court filing.

"I love this woman, and I am not going to let her get dragged into the mud of this crap," said Cohen. "And I never thought the judge was going to throw a three-year fricking sentence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why do the largest hunks of fecal matter swim so closely to those at the top of the food chain in DC?!?

It appears to me, at this point in my observations of those in the Bowels of Power in DC, that the higher up in station these monied people become,and the larger the chokehold they have on our financial affairs, the greater the resistance they have against doing anything remotely for the good of We the People.

Just because a country has "elections", is no guarantee that it remains a democratic republic. We are, at this point in the US, a kleptocracy of the highest order, of the monied, by the monied, and for the monied.

I'm tired of this; no matter who we vote for, there is utterly zero positive change. We are given the illusion of control, through our national elections, but this is nothing more than swapping out one "talking head" for another, who are completely in the sway of the corporations and military industrial complex, which rule this shell game, to which, in large part, we are not privy.
