Fruitful Testimony

Impending Cooperation 1

The House Judiciary Committee has subpoenaed 81 individuals and entities associated with Donald Trump, his campaign, and just his general orbit.  And boy, I really don’t expect that to yield much, especially if the Michael Cohen testimony was any indication.  I mean, Cohen WANTED to testify.  He wanted to put things on the table, and volunteered whatever information he could between being called a liar and a criminal.  I can’t even imagine what things are going to look like with all the people who don’t want to be there.  And there will be plenty.  Among the people who got subpoenaed, who really gives you an idea of what these testimonies could end up looking like is Sean Spicer.  He’s already started on the snark, with his passive aggressive suggestion that he fully intends to cooperate but suggests there isn’t anything interesting to unearth.  In his case, that might be true, seeing as I don’t think Donald Trump really respected Spicer enough to tell him anything, but I still think Spicer knows a lot of things that he’s going to end trying to avoid speaking about to Congress.  And while he may not end up utilizing the 5th amendment, his testimony will probably feel like he is.
