Michael Cohen’s three days of trashing President Trump on Capitol Hill happens to coincide with one of the largest pro-Trump events on the Washington calendar — the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, just across the Potomac from D.C. at the National Harbor in Maryland.

When CPAC speakers did mention Cohen Thursday, it was to dismiss him as a liar and a buffoon. But they didn’t do it much, preferring to rally conservatives to the Trump cause under giant signs reading What Makes America Great in that Trump campaign font.
In the halls, though, it was clear that many attendees had watched Cohen’s televised testimony Wednesday and followed the news of his allegations. Mostly they towed the GOP party line on Cohen. But not everyone did.
