Cummings: House Oversight will seek interviews with Trump Jr., Ivanka
House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Thursday that the panel will seek to interview several of the people that Michael Cohen mentioned during his six-hour testimony, including President Trump's children Don Jr. and Ivanka, as well as Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg.
So the Trumplings will eventually get the Oversight Committee treatment, and both Oversight and Intelligence committees have their eyes on Weisselberg.

Sean Hannity to Trump in tonight’s interview, on Michael Cohen and the hush-money payments: “I can tell you personally, he said to me at least a dozen times, that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you.”

Trump and Hannity are still pretending Trump actually wrote Art of the Deal

Hannity insists Cohen "was never my attorney" - Cohen said in court Hannity was 1 of his 3 clients - then says Cohen told him he decided to make hush payments on his own

"He said to me a dozen times he made the decision on the payments & he didn't tell you"

"Yup," Trump replies pic.twitter.com/NqhLJi7guH

LOL, wat??

I hope Hannity gets burned and does some good jail time.
Yeah like wtf? This dude is admitting on live tv with one of the central conspirators that he knew of a felony being convicted and kept it hidden, and is saying things that would utterly destroy one of the central tenets of Cohen's most recent under oath testimony, along probably with the SDNY investigation into Trump (at least that one).

Given the seriousness of this all, it seems like the House Committee should pursue this lead and get Hannity under oath. Let's see if the stories match up with other witnesses and actual recorded and logged reality... they won't.

Sooooo, any good breakdowns/summaries/best of Youtube-vids of this whole shebang? I tried following it when it was on at one point but some annoying Republican woman was just repeating some dumb shit over and over and the thing didn't seem to be going anywhere so I started doing some other stuff.

There was a decent recap on Seth Meyers' talk show:

The thing that the public hearing really made clear to the swamp people: Cohen doesn't give a fuck anymore about holding anything back. Everybody who had illegal shit to do with him is now wondering if he kept the reciepts (and tapes) for that too.

Dorrbell rings: oh shit, pleasedontbeFBIpleasdontbeFBI .... oh thank god, only Tony the UPS guy.

That hearing was hilarious. Like a real life soap opera. Only thing missing was some long dead character coming back as a surprise witness.
The closing statements by both Cohen and Cummings could basically be put straight into a movie/tv series, complete with Cummings use of the gavel and no one would bet an eye.

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Wow, just revealed that Michael Cohen wrote a “love letter to Trump” manuscript for a new book that he was pushing. Written and submitted long after Charlottesville and Helsinki, his phony reasons for going rogue. Book is exact opposite of his fake testimony, which now is a lie!

8:00 AM - Mar 1, 2019


Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Congress must demand the transcript of Michael Cohen’s new book, given to publishers a short time ago. Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony. Like a different person! He is totally discredited!

8:08 AM - Mar 1, 2019


Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Oh’ I see! Now that the 2 year Russian Collusion case has fallen apart, there was no Collusion except bye Crooked Hillary and the Democrats, they say, “gee, I have an idea, let’s look at Trump’s finances and every deal he has ever done. Let’s follow discredited Michael Cohen.....

8:19 AM - Mar 1, 2019

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

...and the fraudulent and dishonest statements he made on Wednesday. No way, it’s time to stop this corrupt and illegally brought Witch Hunt. Time to start looking at the other side where real crimes were committed. Republicans have been abused long enough. Must end now!

This is legitimately the ramblings of a madman. He's getting dangerously close to being found out and lashing out even more so than usual... And it's glorious.

I say glorious, I mean, terrifying that this man is still in power.

Fair enough Trumpster if that was genuinely true you would do what any previous president* would have done, opened your self up for genuine questioning and shut this down with the Truth, but you won't you twitter rant and direct cronies to try and shut things down because its actually true

*any previous president except the 'great' Nixon wouldn't be in this situation though

Lanny Davis is totally getting bankrolled by Dems, right?

Their exchange over that line of questioning was priceless

I still can't wrap my head around Black Republicans who roll deep with obvious racists.
A lot of racism is pointed at "scary" "others" and not people you know personally, so even obvious racists aren't necessarily racist to acquaintances.

It's like the stories of people that voted for Trump being shocked when some beloved figure from their community would get deported ("Well, of course I wanted illegals deported, but this guy was a good person!"). This is why racists think they aren't racist for having a black friend ("I've never called my friend the n-word, therefore I cannot be racist!").

is there a full transcript of this anywhere? I have read the opening statements, can't seem to find any thing else in a easy to read format. cspan has a subtitle transcript but you have to read it with the video. would prefer to read the hearing, less yelling and tv showmanship.
