What Cohen Knows That Dems Don't

There's a universe of things that convicted felon, Michael Cohen, doesn't know, but after ten years of fealty to a cultist, there is one unsavory bit of life that Cohen does know, inside and out: Donald Trump.  

Cohen knows, in fact, that Trump, the classic necrophilous personality, would rather have dead what he cannot have alive, and that is the message Cohen left with the Oversight Committee yesterday.
“My loyalty to Mr. Trump has cost me everything: my family’s happiness, friendships, my law license, my company, my livelihood, my honor, my reputation and, soon, my freedom. And I will not sit back, say nothing, and allow him to do the same to the country,” Cohen said at the hearing’s closing. “Indeed, given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020 that there will never be a peaceful transition of power, and this is why I agreed to appear before you today.”
Cohen's message should give pause to those Democrats who want to "play it safe" and avoid the Constitutional demand for impeachment hearings that they fear Republicans will exploit to their political advantage.  

Impeachment or indictment may be the last options before opening the door to a violent political future.  These are the tough decisions that we elected Democrats to make, and it is only through their leadership and courage that the Republic can be given another chance to renew itself without the spilling of blood.
