‘Like a Stoner Who Just Got Pulled Over’
As the Russia investigation continues, the particular suggest, Robert Mueller, continues to make President Trump and his allies — previous and provide — squirm. In contemporary days, Michael Cohen, the president’s former attorney, has confessed to crimes he mentioned he dedicated on Trump’s behalf, even though he hasn’t won a transparent promise from the federal government to hunt leniency when he’s sentenced.
Stephen Colbert relayed the most recent tendencies with out sounding very sympathetic to Cohen.
“In a surprise twist, Cohen doesn’t want to go to jail! His lawyers argued that in exchange for his cooperation with Robert Mueller, Cohen ‘should be spared prison for crimes he committed in an abundance of enthusiasm for’ Trump. Yes, ‘an abundance of enthusiasm.’ So, unlike the women he paid off for Trump, Cohen wasn’t faking it.” — STEPHEN COLBERT
