Trump lawyer turns down request to testify and provide documentation for Russian probe.

Courtesy of Politico:  

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney has turned down a request to be interviewed and provide documents in the congressional probe into Russian interference into the 2016 election. 

Michael Cohen, who worked at the Trump Organization until January and remains the president’s private counsel, confirmed Tuesday he would not cooperate with Capitol Hill investigators as they examine contacts between Trump’s circle of aides and Russian officials. 

"I declined the invitation to participate as the request was poorly phrased, overly broad and not capable of being answered,” Cohen told POLITICO via text message. He did not specify which House or Senate panels had sought him out as part of their investigations.

Just take a moment to get over the irony of an attorney for Donald Trump referring to something as "poorly phrased." 

It should also be noted that Michael Flynn is pleading the fifth, and therefore ALSO refusing to provide documentation or provide testimony.

So I have to wonder is this now the strategy moving forward?

Does this mean that Jared Kushner will refuse to cooperate? As well as others who might be called to provide information?

Because if that is the case, I think we can essentially state unequivocally that obstructionism is now being carried out in full view of the public.

    It appears Michael Flynn has decided to turn over some documents, both personal and business.

    OT?"Paris Climate Agreement was created by
    “emotional” liberals."Coburn, the Paris agreement was an “emotional and reactive” response that did not take into account “ALL the facts.”“I’m just a skeptic,” he remarked. “I’ve actually read ALL of it while I was a U.S. senator. I read ALL the science. I read EVERYTHING that was out there. I don’t agree.”

      “The Americans can’t just leave the climate protection agreement. Mr. Trump believes that because he doesn’t know the details.”

    "The whole world is laughing." NOT FUNNY!
    "Not only did the Russians successfully interfere in last year’s presidential election to help Trump become president, but now they are successfully shaping U.S. policy in their favor."

    "...obstructionism is now being carried out in full view of the public."

    Not quite -- most of this is not being reported by Fox, thus 35% of Americans think everything is wonderful!

    "Comey to testify publicly about Trump confrontations"
    " A week after he took office in January, Trump allegedly demanded Comey's "loyalty" if he kept him on as FBI director, and he urged Comey to drop his ongoing investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's fired national security adviser, in a separate, one-on-one meeting.
    The source said that Comey is expected to stand by those accounts in his testimony."
