When Cohen testified why didn't Republicans defend the president?
Did you notice that for all the insults and disgrace they put on Cohen not one Republican defended the president? Not one of them even said he was a "good person". It is getting harder and harder for Republicans to say that the president is not a liar or totally corrupt. Many of the ignorant supporters still cling to the "Fake Media News" line but that is getting weaker and weaker. That dishonesty and general disregard for the truth in favor of of supporting a political agenda will have far reaching ramifications for the US.

Good point...all the Republicans (especially that Ohio Rep) spent their minutes of fame belittling and besmirching Cohen rather than asking questions in search of the truth. Everyone knows Cohen is a liar, but that should not stop the Committee from seeking the truth.
And you are right, not one of the Republicans defended Trump and his actions. Not one of them suggested a legitimate reason why Trump would claim $9 billion in assets for the Forbes wealthiest list but only $5 billion for the IRS.

The show was about letting comrade cohen go out with a bang. it was not about President Trump or anyone else proving once again that comrade cohen is a LIAR.

No one elected Trump because he was a "good person". He was elected to advance the GOP agenda. While many could argue against how successful he's actually been with some issues it's hard to argue he's not doing more than an average president would have. He's risks everything to get things done. Right or wrong that makes his supporters happy. I'm not saying I support his approach or agenda, but I understand it.

Defending the president puts them on the hook w/ commitment. No one knows how much darker it will get for trump. It's much safer to attack the messenger while pounding the sliver of doubt Cohen's testimony yesterday was false. Cohen was already scheduled for prison because of his dishonesty which conflicted w/ what was plausible at the time. Yesterday was more like it. Why lie? ... he's already going to jail. People lie to avoid it. Yesterday was voluntary. He had much to lose w/ more lies.
He was articulate, coherent, he had his evidence, his dates were accurate, no conflicting testimony of himself etc. That's what a star witness looks like.

All true. As much as they threw insults at Cohen, they had not even one logical rebuttal to his accusations of their glorious leader..not one. Its because they know that Cohen would not lie while under oath and already facing a three year sentence, and that the documentation for every one of his accusations was not only in his possession, but on file in the FBI offices.
@AttackSmile..and you used to believe him when he was covering for Trump. He was proved to be a liar when I thought he was a liar, and he has confessed to that and will serve the sentence for that.

Why bother? Cohen inadvertently refuted the accusations against Trump.

They did defend the President...by constantly attacking Cohen's credibility and not addressing a single bit of his testimony. (they only know how to go after low-hanging fruit)
