Michael Cohen Testifies to Congress This Week

Headlines! Breathless headlines!

Washington Post: Cohen Plans Scathing Testimony About Trump, Russia, and Stormy Daniels.

New York Times: Planned in Michael Cohen's Testimony: A Litany of Accusations Against Trump.

CNN: Michael Cohen on Capitol Hill Tuesday, Start of 3-Day Congressional Gauntlet.

Wall Street Journal: Cohen to Testify That Trump Engaged in Criminal Conduct While in Office.

CNBC: Michael Cohen Is Expected to Tell Congress That Trump Broke the Law While in Office.

Et cetera!

My question is: Will it matter? I sure hope it matters! It would be real nice if someone testifying under oath that the President of the United States broke the law actually mattered at some point.

Cohen will be testifying behind closed doors today and Thursday. Tomorrow's testimony before the House Oversight Committee will be streamed on C-SPAN 3, if you're looking for a place to watch.

For more information on the basic outlines of Cohen's testimony, Aaron Blake at the Washington Post has a good explainer.

I SURE HOPE THIS MATTERS. By which I mean, of course: I sure hope the Republicans find just a modicum of patriotism and loyalty and do the right thing at long last.

LOL I know. A girl can dream.
