The following is an excerpt from an article in The Hill.
Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, completed three full days of testimony before Congress this week, two of those days behind closed doors. Don’t worry if you missed the public appearance. Here are some notable moments from his testimony:
Biggest headline if you’re anti-Trump
Trump is a tax cheat, womanizer, liar and racist. He’s also “filthy” with Russia contacts.
Biggest headline if you’re pro-Trump
Cohen actually may have assisted Trump in the Russia investigation when he said he knew of no evidence of Russia collusion. And he further discredited the Democratic-funded anti-Trump “dossier.”
Biggest elephant in the room
At the start of the hearing, Cohen — an admitted perjurer and liar who pleaded guilty to a variety of charges — took an oath to tell the truth.
Cohen coordinated his appearance and testimony with Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). Coordination with political leaders is routine among both Democrats and Republicans when they call witnesses and schedule hearings.
Cohen attorney Lanny Davis, a Hillary Clinton confidante, is working for Cohen without getting paid.
