This Wednesday, President Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen admitted that he is unable to corroborate allegations that the president discussed elements of WikiLeaks’ email hacks with Roger Stone.
“How can we corroborate what you’re saying?” Democratic Rep. Deborah Wasserman Schultz of Florida asked Cohen, referring to the former Trump confidant’s allegations that he was aware of Stone’s contact with Julian Assange.
The Florida Rep. is among a slew of Democrats and Republicans grilling Cohen during a congressional hearing.
“I don’t know, but I suspect the special counsel’s office and other government agencies have the information that you’re seeking,” Cohen replayed.
Michael Cohen claims that he overheard Stone tell Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign that he had spoken to Assange about the release of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee.
Cohen, who will begin a three-year prison sentence in May, is also providing stories from his decades of working for President Trump, which he claims shows the former real estate mogul to be “a racist … a conman … a cheat.”
This Wednesday, President Trump ripped Cohen’s appearance ahead of time, telling his Twitter followers that his former lawyer “did bad things unrelated to Trump. He is lying in order to reduce his prison time. Using Crooked’s lawyer!”
While Cohen was saying this under oath, he should keep in mind that his sentence might be increased if he is not telling the truth.
“Only thing I’m learning now is that Cohen is a convicted habitual liar who says he’s done lying for Trump, so now he’s lying for democrats.” said Jim Jordan.
