- Michael Cohen Tells the Truth — Closing Remarks Before Congress
Cohen’s hearing before the Congressional committee turned into a fine display of Republican viciousness. Cohen, convicted of earlier Trump-associated crimes, i.e., lying to Congress to protect The Boss, made a fair target for discrediting, but the barrage of indictments and innuendo launched by Representatives Jordan, Green, Comer, Hice, and Gosar, among others, either served to deflect attention from President Trump or to provide a lasting display of the kind of persons the Republican Party has seen elected to power.

Cohen. A nice Jewish boy and a man you can trust. Psychologically, what do you call the act of accusing another of precisely what you do yourself?

If we admonish others about behaviors in which we engage ourselves, then we are hypocrites. However, and more applicable with these hearings, is a concept having to do with the near future: pointing the finger as somebody and accusing them of malicious intentions that one in fact harbors against the same target may be referred to as “Accusation in a Mirror”. The term of art may be searched up online.
