Michael Cohen Says Poll Rigging Was 'At the Direction of and for the Sole Benefit' of Trump

How do you feel about this allegation?

by Axios | Updated on 1.17.19

Michael Cohen said in a Thursday tweet that he tried to rig polls "at the direction of and for the sole benefit of President Trump."

The big picture: Cohen was responding to a Wall Street Journal report that he hired an IT firm to attempt to rig online polls in Trump's favor. Neither of Cohen's attempts to rig online polls from CNBC and the Drudge Report ended up being particularly successful. "I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it," Cohen tweeted.

    He’s dirty and we know it. It’s time for the deplorables to come to terms with that and help protect this country.

    How am I not surprised. Trump makes Nixon look like an amateur. And the Republicans are silent!

    I’m happy he is finally admitting to what the vast majority of us have known since 2016 - the Idiot knew about everything! This man is a narcissist. He is in charge and controlling of all around him. No one does anything unless he knows about it. Especially, his family. You’re a fool, if you believe otherwise!

    We have the most corrupt presidential administration, lawyers in the White House and the republicans in Congress! The big question is why are the republicans protecting this president? If it was any other president, they would have been impeached them and be looking at jail time!

    Add an angry face to the sad face and Countable will have a true assessment on how I feel. Given that #45 hates to lose, be wrong and despises when he is not constantly adulated, I believe what Cohen has said and will say about what he was ordered to do. My only hope is that the over 800,000 hostages will be able to receive a paycheck soon. Afterward, #45 must be brought to face his myriad of illegal activities. As others have said, if this were any other president, the GOP would have acted immediately. Find your backbones and get to work on removing this embarrassment of an administration. Otherwise, history will record all of #45’s affronts to our Constitution and that the GOP did absolutely nothing to stop him.

    If Trump followers haven't seen through his lies yet I don't really believe that anything short of a miracle can change their minds. They've already drank the koolaid. It's sad that people can be so gullible.

    Sociopath Trump has NO moral compulsion to do the right thing. In his mind anything that benefits him is right and if it doesn’t, it’s wrong. This is not normal selfish behavior, it’s a psychological disorder. This is not a characteristic we want in a president. Many of us saw this in Trump from the start of his campaign or before. Those that didn’t and voted for him need to do some self-reflection on how they judge people’s character and refrain from voting until they develop some interpersonal skills. Do this for the good of the country.

    Donald Trump is nothing but a snake oil salesman and a lier. Also I think he’s adding one more category to his bio and that’s criminal. No Democrat would have been able to get away with this bombastic behavior. What is wrong with the Republican party? How can you turn a blind eye to all of this. Even if you were a Trump supporter you have got to look at what he’s doing to our economy and our nation. We are now trillions of dollars in debt, the federal government is in lockdown. There’s nothing but a stream of lies and doubletalk coming out of the White House. His own lawyer said he tried to influence the election and had contact with the Russians.That’s his lawyer after 10 years. You don’t keep somebody around for 10 years that’s not doing a good job for you. It’s time to throw this bum out of office. And once he’s tossed out he should be brought up on federal charges. Any Republican in the Congress or Senate that works to support this abomination of a man should be looked at with questioning eyes as being complicit in this farce. And possibly eating and abetting a criminal activity against America.

    If the allegations are true impeachment, arrest, and prosecution should follow for Trump.

    Any attempt to rig the polls whether it was successful or not should be taken seriously and reported. Luckily it was not successful. Not clear how he tried to rig the polls but hope his attempt failed because other parties stand for honest poll taking.

    We need to get rid of trump and all his baggage including the GOP as soon as possible to save our Democracy. I feel sorry for those who don’t/won’t/ can’t see through his lies and shenanigans. They are in for a shock of a lifetime.

    I knew it. It’s horrible, but Trump will do anything, ANYTHING to get his way. Just like holding the Country hostage with this shutdown over a wall that more than 70% of the people don’t want -even those who live on the border don’t want it. course it’s probably not the wall, but THOSE HES SCREWED, like Cohen, that he’s afraid of & using the wall to keep people’s minds off them. Doesn’t surprise me but makes me sad that the republicans in this country are standing behind this Conman.
