Rep. Mark Green: Michael Cohen's a liar and fake witness -- His anti-Trump Congressional testimony is worthless
In the House Oversight and Reform Committee Wednesday, Democrats brought disgraced and disbarred attorney Michael Cohen up as their first witness to testify before Congress and make a long list of unproven accusations against President Trump.
Cohen, who was formerly President Trump’s personal attorney, is heading to prison in May for three years for lying to Congress, lying to the Internal Revenue Service to cheat on his taxes, and lying to financial institutions. And Cohen can’t claim he was wrongly convicted – he pleaded guilty to these crimes.
With all his lies over many years, it begs the question: what are the Democrats trying to do here? No one can seriously argue that Cohen as credible – by his own admission in his plea deal he has lied again and again and again.
I'm a member of the Oversight and Reform Committee and was among those questioning Cohen Wednesday. It’s clear to me that he will say whatever he wants to accomplish his own personal goals. You can’t believe a word he says and he can’t be trusted.
Now Cohen is taking advantage of live TV coverage of his committee testimony` to try to rehabilitate his image – probably so that one day he can rake in big bucks with a book, a movie or TV deal, and on the lecture circuit by telling more lies about President Trump.
For about 10 years, Cohen collected a big salary working for Donald Trump. Now he wants to profit more by working against President Trump, letting Democrats use him in their nonstop campaign to discredit, oppose – and possibly try to impeach – the duly elected president of the United States.
