I know I'm not the smartest person in the world, so please help me out here...

Concerning today's hearing: How can the republicans try to say Cohen is now discredited as a liar when, what Cohen was originally lying to Congress about was designed to protect Trump?

For example: Trump was out telling everyone in the country that he had no dealings in Russia and pays no price for his lie. However, Cohen gets in trouble for supporting that lie to Congress. What gives? Do I have this wrong or what?

1. That is exactly the box the GOPers are in.

Cohen was a liar for Trump. It's really hard for them to be busting on him now when he was lying to protect Trump - just like the rest of the GOP does now.

2. Why couldn't the republicans see that for themselves

and stop acting like fools during the hearing?

4. They're hoping that Rush and Faux Noise will spin it enough

that people will forget the real issues.

3. Listen well

ReTHUGs are partisan scum. His lies were what they wanted when they ran said Committee. They have not asked one single question that would expose the Con - same as when they ran the Committee - this is about power and greed not oversight.
