Concerning what Chuck Rosenberg said!

MONDAY, MARCH 20, 2023

Why Cohen got three years: In this, the possible Week That Was, we're going to show you some of the ways we blue tribe viewers may perhaps get misled by our own tribe's corporate tribunes.

(More correctly, "some of the ways we get misled" on a regular basis.)

For one example, consider what Chuck Rosenberg said this very morning. According to the leading authority, here's who Rosenberg is:

Chuck Rosenberg is an American attorney. He formerly served as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) and for the Southern District of Texas; as a senior FBI official on the staff of two FBI Directors; as Counselor to the Attorney General; as the Chief of Staff to the Deputy Attorney General; as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in EDVA in Norfolk and Alexandria; and as the former Acting Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

In short, Rosenberg's vastly experienced. In the current context, he's one of several legal analysts who are able to go on MSNBC and offer informative legal analyses without reciting every Standard Tribal Script. 

Also, without revealing how much they hate Donald J. Trump as part of every presentation.

In short, the fellow is pretty much "just the facts." This morning, early in the 6 o'clock hour, he engaged in this exchange on Morning Joe concerning the so-called "hush money" payment to Stormy Daniels:

SCARBOROUGH (3/20/23): Michael Cohen got sent to jail for being part of this scheme. Why? 

ROSENBERG: Well, he pled guilty to, I believe, eight felonies under federal law, and not just this scheme. There was a tax scheme, he had made false statements. So there were more, and more serious, offenses to which he pled guilty. 

This is a narrower piece of what he pled guilty to. Now, he had an integral role, if he is to be believed, in the Trump "hush money" false bookkeeping caper. But he, Cohen, pled guilty to many more offenses, and that was in the federal system, not in the state system. 

On the down side, Rosenberg isn't supposed to be saying things like that on our own blue cable. On the brighter side, no one on our cable channel will ever attempt to flesh out the implications of what Rosenberg said.

Here's what Rosenberg said:

If you watch blue tribe cable news, you will constantly hear a presentation which takes this general form:

Michael Cohen got sentenced to three years in prison for the hush money payment. Why shouldn't Donald J. Trump get the exact same treatment?

Blue cable stars recite that script until the cows come home. In fact, Cohen was sentenced to prison for a cocktail of federal offenses, as described by the leading authority on the matter:

Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges: five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution at the request of a candidate for the "principal purpose of influencing [the] election."

In Rosenberg's assessment, the charges relating to the hush money payment were less serious than some of the other charges. That may or may not be an accurate assessment, but Cohen pled guilty to eight offenses, only two of which were connected to the payment to Daniels.

(Also, please note: Cohen pled guilty to these charges, in part as a way to lessen his possible sentence. He wasn't found guilty of the hush money charges by an actual jury during an actual trial.)

As such, it's false to say that Cohen got three years for the payment to Daniels. Still, you'll hear that embellished version of the facts over and over and over and over on programs like Deadline: White House, and even on Morning Joe.

Last Thursday, another vastly experienced legal analyst—Neal Katyal—outrageously said, on Deadline: White House, that he can imagine reasons why Merrick Farland hasn't decided to pursue Donald J. Trump in federal court for the "hush money caper."

Instantly, Katyal's angry multimillionaire host pushed back hard against his ridiculous statement. Katyal quickly backpedaled away from his momentary heresy. On Deadline: White House, Merrick Garland is wrong, wrong, wrong, and no other thoughts need apply!

At any rate, you will hear, again and again, that Cohen got three years for the hush money caper. It's an embellished version of the facts—a misstated version designed to pimp tribal Storyline and send us happily off to bed with sugarplums dancing in our easily satisfied heads.

Should Trump be facing federal charges for the hush money caper?  Personally, we're inclined to regard this as the ultimate Mickey Mouse criminal charge, whether we're talking about federal or state court.

But having said that, no! Michael Cohen didn't get three years for his role in this matter, no matter how many times you hear Hacks Like Us recite the inaccurate statement.

We're routinely misled by Hacks Like Us! Tomorrow morning, we'll look at an especially ugly evergreen charge.

Later this week: Look who said that Stormy Daniels could have been charged with extortion! Never mention views like that on our blue tribe's programs!

  1. "Hush money caper" doesn't sound exactly like a legal term, y'know.

    So, what are the charges now, dear Bob? Does any of your dembot talking heads tell you?

    3. Don't be silly AC/MA. No one needs to keep an open mind about Trump. It is too obvious who and what he is and what he has done that is illegal. The only question is whether our system can effectively prosecute someone with his political power, wealth, and history of manipulating the legal system. None of that is about whether Trump has committed crimes or not. It is about how well our system functions under pressure.

      If you think Trump is innocent, you are not keeping an open mind yourself, in the face of all the evidence that has been appearing regularly in the news and in 1/6 hearings and in people's books, and in his own statements (such as on Truth Social). It would make more sense to ask someone to keep an open mind about Cohen and Stormy Daniels.

    4. anon 6:49, where did I say Trump was "innocent." If being a douche bag was a crime, I for one would convict him. Admittedly, trying an ex-president would be a first, and its not like prosecuting someone who is not an ex-president. Ex-presidents shouldn't be above the law. But I think if he is going to be charged it shouldn't be for something that is a stretch, and what will look like a political trial, it should be clear cut, which I'm not sure is the case. I don't share your apparent lust for him to be imprisoned for one of these at these point unproven crimes - I tend to think it will make things worse.

    5. You won’t know whether this is a stretch until you hear the evidence.

    6. AC/ MA,
      This is like when Democrats tried to impeach Trump for treason. Sure, there were 10 Republicans who are against treason, but the Democrats were so deluded they thought some of them were Senators.

    5. "Though he was not convicted of any crime, the revelation that he had engaged in an extramarital affair and fathered a child while his wife, Elizabeth, was dying of cancer, gravely damaged his public image and essentially ended his political career."

      Are you suggesting that was a political prosecution or disagreeing that he was innocent of the charges (not the adultery, obviously)?

      Delete
    6. Anonymouse 7:00pm, Edwards gave his girlfriend a million bucks thru his campaign donors.

      It’s not a slam dunk case.

    7. So you agree then that Trump should resign from politics in disgrace, the way Edwards did? After all, he has laundered Russian oligarch money through his Truth Social company and accepted NRA contributions that were Russian money laundered through the NRA, and colluded with Russia, and so on. Perhaps not slam dunks either but everyone knows what he did.

      Delete
    8. He did not collude with Russia though. There were two major multi-million dollar investigations into the matter and they did not conclude that there was collusion. I know I know his campaign manager gav polling data to hey person with ties to Russian intelligence who was a known source for the US state department. Still that's not collusion. And both reports explicitly say so. I can give you sources if you would like.

      Delete
    9. Getting a Republican to issue a report doesn’t mean there was no collusion. The Russians said they colluded.

      Delete
    10. Just provide the collusion proof when you find it and we'll be good. Until then your claim is false.

    11. 1. Paul Manafort worked as Trump’s campaign manager for free.
      2. Russia, if you’re listening, Trump said in public.
      3. Russia bragged about interfering to help Trump.
      4. Trump met alone with Putin without translators or American press and all notes were destroyed.
      5. Jill Stein & Tulsi Gabbard were courted by Russia, visiting Russia all expenses paid.
      6. Russians bought Trump condos & other real estate for inflated prices.
      7. Russian meddling described in Mueller report with US prosecution.

      Delete
    12. None of that is proof of collusion. Miuller dropped the charges against the Russian troll farm. Number two is my favorite though. It is your belief that Trump decided to communicate with Russia through a live press conference. That means he had to wait for a reporter to ask him about Russia in order to communicate with them. And it also means that you think that Russian hackers were sitting around waiting for instructions on what to do from Trump by watching his televised press conferences. You really don't understand how crazy the accusations are yet you still make them after major multimillion dollar investigations did not establish that there was any coordination, conspiracy or collusion oftentimes there wasn't even any evidence of it. It's intellectually on the same level as a young boy trying to prove evidence that Bigfoot exists.So it's funny all these years later and all of that propaganda that you consumed and still do leed you to make claims about it that are not only false but completely absurd. And often directly contradicted by evidence. So, no. There was never any collusion. This is not evidence of collusion. Accusations of collusion are and always have been a scape goat. Sorry son.

    13. 2:43, get back to me when Donald J Chickenshit answers questions under oath to the Mueller team, like he repeatedly said he was eager to do.

      You know damn well why the DOJ had to drop the charges.

    14. Once the media made the collective decision to disappear the outright bigotry of Republican voters as the reason Trump was elected President in 2016, stories like Russia collusion were inevitable.

    15. Trump not testifying is not proof of collusion. Sorry ,.claims of collusion are totally false. Get back to me with proof and we'll be good. Really,.the whole thing is and has been a.scapegoat.for the Democrat's loss and inability to motivate enough voters due to their lack of meaningful policies and the worst candidate in modern history. She married into it.

    16. Claims of racism too are blame and attention shifting excuses for one of the worst political campaigns and losses in history.

      Delete
    17. You're so funny. You think we can all just forget watching Donald J Chickenshit obstruct the investigation in every way possible, tamper with witnesses, dangle pardons and then run for cover when asked to answer questions under oath. That was his choice and he knew at the time how bad it looked for him, but he had no choice, because he's such a lying corrupt sack of shit.
      Am I supposed to just ignore all that I witnessed with my own two eyes? Sorry, normal reasonable people with more than two brain cells are able to put 2+2 together.

      Tell me, how did several persons connected to his campaign know ahead of time about the Wikileaks email hacks? Like Roger Stone, who also got a pardon?

      False Statements and Obstruction ofthe Investigation

      The Office determined that certain individuals associated with the Campaign lied to investigators about Campaign contacts with Russia and have taken other actions to interfere with the investigation. As explained below, the Office therefore charged some U.S. persons connected to the Campaign with false statements and obstruction offenses.


      Who then received the promised pardons.

      Go run along now, I think Vlad Putin needs some more cannon fodder.

    18. Roger Stone didn't know anything about the WikiLeaks release. He publicly.predicted it was going to be about the Clinton Foundation. He didn't say anything Assange was not already saying in public. Sorry.

    23. that's right, 10:08, YOU can't prove a negative.

      On the other hand, I can prove that Donald J Chickenshit totally obstructed the Mueller investigation in multiple transparent ways, documented in Volume 2 of the Mueller Report. Draw from that whatever inference you want, I know what inference I can draw. You are free to keep your head up your ass and troll progressive blogs the rest of your life.

    24. Prove it then! I would love.to see the proof. Mueller made no judgement one way or another about obstruction in his report. You didn't even read it.. Comical.

      Delete
    25. I read the Mueller report front to back There is no proof anywhere in it about any Republican voter who isn't a bigot.
      Of course, Mueller only spent years and millions of dollars to find any proof at all.

    MSNBC when they agree with him. Does
    FOX do as well? They do have former

    gives Fox a pass, treating Carlson as

      As things have heated up, the

  5. Cohen was sentenced because he pled guilty and cooperated with authorities, but the crimes he committed were in collusion with and on behalf of Trump, who was his client. When people ask why Cohen is in jail while Trump is not, it is not because of the confusion that Somerby points out (about the number of crimes Cohen confessed to), but because Cohen was Trump's attorney and did illegal things in that role, to benefit Trump. Further, Trump has not confessed or cooperated, so it would not be expected that he would get a lesser sentence but rather a more stringent one. Cohen is the minion and Trump is the boss. That means that Cohen's three years is a lighter version of what someone involved in eight Federal crimes might expect if they did not plead guilty or cooperate, but forced prosecutors to bring him to justice, as Trump has been doing all along.

    So, Somerby's criticism of cable news today doesn't pass the smell test. Somerby himself is ignoring the context for Cohen's sentencing and pretending that what Cohen did was much worse than Trump's crimes were prosecutors able to bring Trump to justice ultimately.

    Cohen got stuck holding the whole bag of crimes that Trump required him to do on his payroll. It doesn't make Trump innocent that he has been able to use his power and money to wiggle off those hooks (so far).

    2. anon 5:40, you write like you have all this knowledge about what is going on, the applicable law, what evidence prosecutors have etc. Do you know what the indictment, if there is one, will say? are you able, from an impartial standpoint, to assess what the charges will be, if there are any, and the strength of the case? I'm not, but if you are, good for you.

      Delete
    3. AC/MA, have you read the rundown on the number of criminal investigations that are currently underway focusing on Trump? I leave the lawyering to the lawyers, just like I leave the teaching to the teachers. They will get him eventually, or he will die as a disgraced president, like Nixon did. Either way, Trump is toast. He will not be nominated and will not be elected again. If things get bad enough, Melania will leave him (since he will no longer be able to pay her enough to stay with him). Trump's misfortune is that he was not born in Russia where he could have been an oligarch. I will dance on his grave.

      Do you think that the only crime that Al Capone ever committed was tax evasion? Trump is a criminal, whether he is indicted on Tuesday or next year or never. And no, I don't need a jury to tell me that. Our system of justice says that he must be treated as innocent by our legal system, until proven guilty. That does not apply to the judgment of society or of individuals. Next you will try to tell us that Trump didn't take those classified documents they found in his possession at Mar a Lago. I don't care which crime they convict him of. Somerby can try to convince people that Trump is innocent if they can't make their case on this particular indictment. Don't let him con you like a rube.

      Delete
    4. Except of tax evasion. But what were the acts that he failed to report taxes on?

      Delete
    5. anon 6:37, even though we both don't like him, in the US you are innocent until proven guilty. So far, he hasn't been charged or indicted with any crime, though that may well be coming. And even then, he still needs to be convicted. By the way, TDH hasn't tried to convince anyone Trump is "innocent.'

      Delete
    6. Only innocent under law, not public opinion. TDH works hard to convince people Trump is crazy.

      Delete
  6. "We're routinely misled by Hacks Like Us!"

    I think Somerby is more misleading than anyone on cable news. When he says "like us" today, it is definitely true for himself, but not so much anyone else. Once again, he has a trivial nitpick about use of language that doesn't mislead anyone who has watched cable and understood what is being discussed. There may be stupid people who watch TV (Boebert comes to mind), but this isn't really anything that is going to be misleading. The aggregate crimes committed by Trump would put him away for much longer than Cohen, and when Cohen engaging in the crimes he confessed to, he did them as Trump's agent. It is only the unfairness of our justice system that has allowed Trump to evade justice for so long.

    Did you see the report about Trump deliberately scheduling court appearances so that they would conflict with each other and allow him to drag out proceedings? Trump is not innocent -- he has enough money to work the system in order to deny the American people the accountability we are entitled to under law. It is what he does -- part of his skill as a criminal who has evaded justice in ways the American people generally cannot get away with (such as Cohen, who was a member of Trump's crime organization but was thrown under the bus early on).

  9. The question isn't whether Mark Pomerantz thinks Stormy Daniels could have been charged with extortion (people can be charged with whatever a D.A. wants to charge them with). The question is whether she would be likely to be convicted.

    Donald used to kiss and tell. Stormy attempted to do the same thing. Is that extortion? Stormy said that she was approached by Trump (not vice versa) who wanted to suppress her story because he was running for office. That really does seem like Trump's problem. Daniels says she didn't need the money, she is financially successful in her career. Trump was the one with something to gain. And if Trump didn't want women to discuss their experiences with him, he shouldn't have done what he didn't want anyone to know about. How then, could Stormy Daniels be convicted of extortion, if some DA were to charge her with it? And if she were charged, what would happen in court? There would be far greater publicity about Trump's actions, his own behavior would be fully exposed to the public, and his attempts to silence her would too. Those attempts to silence other women would come out, as they would be likely witnesses in support of Daniels' case.

    But Somerby thinks some comment by Pomerantz supports his view that Stormy was a con artist and extortionism, so he is happy to link to his new book. Because Somerby is always willing to promote a narrative if it agrees with his own views -- in this case that women always lie about sex and they are just trying to entrap men and steal their money and get men in trouble, like Chanel Miller who got that nice young Stanford swimmer in trouble by passing out at a frat party and making a target he couldn't pass up lying there beside a dumpster.

  10. Trump is the only one so far who is saying he will be indicted and arrested on Tuesday. He is probably doing that so that when it doesn't happen on schedule, he can say he has been exonerated.

  12. Here is an example of the way the right keeps an open mind about Trump's potential crimes:

    https://www.rawstory.com/pete-santilli-executions/

    "Right-wing broadcaster Pete Santilli recently argued that the U.S. military should execute former President Barack Obama, former Attorney General Eric Holder, and former National Security Advisor Susan Rice if former President Donald Trump is arrested."

  13. Alvin Bragg is contributing to racism.

    When I worked in the traditionally anti-Semitic reinsurance industry, I knew that my behavior would reflect on other Jews. I'd like to believe that my good performance helped other Jews, at least a tiny bit.

    Much more importantly, MLK, Jackie Robinson, and Arthur Ashe bent over backwards to behave well. I read that the first time Ashe played in a mixed race tennis tournament, his (black) coach told him to call opponents' balls if they were out by less than 2 inches. MLK and Robinson suffered a huge amount of racial animosity, including physical attacks. They never responded in kind.

    By, today's standards, their behavior may seem pusillanimous and unbecoming. One can criticize their passive behavior, but bear one thing in mind: What they did worked

    Now we see Manhattan prosecutor Alvin Bragg behaving badly. No matter now much you hate Trump, digging up a 7 year old case that was already investigated and rejected by federal law enforcement, and using this case to indict a leading political opponent is obviously an abuse of prosecutorial powers. De Santis criticized the action attributing it to a Soros-supported prosecutor. He didn't mention that Bragg was black. But, some people will notice Bragg's race. Bragg's action contributes to a racist belief that blacks are not ethical.

    1. He also furthers stereotypes about obese people not being that smart.

    2. If you discover that a prosecution was shelved for political reasons, it is right to resurrect it.

    3. Thanks for the interest @7:59. My name and looks make it clear that I'm Jewish. I never mentioned it, but everyone knew it.

      @8:12 Are you alleging that the prosecution from 7 years ago was shelved for political reasons? What evidence do you have?

  14. Chances are bordering on 100% that you could not keep your "Jew secret" any better in the workplace than that you are a race baiting troll on the internet.

  15. From Digby:

    It might be months, or years, or days—
    I kept no count, I took no note—
    I had no hope my eyes to raise,
    And clear them of their dreary mote;
    At last men came to set me free;370
    I asked not why, and recked not where;
    It was at length the same to me,
    Fettered or fetterless to be,
    I learned to love despair.
    And thus when they appeared at last,
    And all my bonds aside were cast,
    These heavy walls to me had grown
    A hermitage—and all my own![34]
    And half I felt as they were come
    To tear me from a second home:380
    With spiders I had friendship made,
    And watched them in their sullen trade,
    Had seen the mice by moonlight play,
    And why should I feel less than they?
    We were all inmates of one place,
    And I, the monarch of each race,
    Had power to kill—yet, strange to tell!
    In quiet we had learned to dwell;[h]
    My very chains and I grew friends,
    So much a long communion tends390
    To make us what we are:—even I
    Regained my freedom with a sigh.
    [29]

    FOOTNOTES:
    [1]{7} [In the first draft, the sonnet opens thus—

    "Belov├ęd Goddess of the chainless mind!
    Brightest in dungeons, Liberty! thou art,
    Thy palace is within the Freeman's heart,
    Whose soul the love of thee alone can bind;
    And when thy sons to fetters are consign'd—
    To fetters, and the damp vault's dayless gloom,
    Thy joy is with them still, and unconfined,
    Their country conquers with their martyrdom."

  16. Anyone who isn't a bigot, or isn't perfectly fine with bigotry, left the Republican Party before the 21st century.
