Before you think, “How can anyone trust the testimony of a man going to prison for lying under oath to Congress?” remember we’re talking about House Democrats.
Per The Daily Caller:
Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney to President Donald Trump, will testify before Congress next month, the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee announced Thursday.
“I thank Michael Cohen for agreeing to testify before the Oversight Committee voluntarily,” Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings said in a statement announcing Cohen’s highly-anticipated testimony.
“I want to make clear that we have no interest in inappropriately interfering with any ongoing criminal investigations, and to that end, we are in the process of consulting with Special Counsel Mueller’s office. The Committee will announce additional information in the coming weeks.”
Cohen said in a statement that he had accepted Cummings’ invitation and “look[s] forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired.”
Chairman Cummings is already comparing Cohen’s scheduled appearance to that of John Dean, President Nixon’s White House counsel, who testified before the Senate committee investigating Watergate.
Trying to get the notoriously dishonest Cohen to implicate the president in an impeachable offense will do wonders to improve the toxic relationship between Speaker Pelosi and the president (wink, wink).
