Don Jr., Eric Trump and CNN: Michael Cohen Lied When He Told Congress He Never Wanted a White House Job (VIDEO)
Michael Cohen, a convicted liar who was just disbarred, testified in a public Congressional hearing to the Oversight Committee on Wednesday.
Mr. Cohen continued to lie under oath on Wednesday. He has nothing to lose — he is already going to prison for 36 months for lying to Congressional investigators.
The Democrats and Deep State purposely dragged Michael Cohen out to testify in a dog-and-pony show to harass President Trump while he is in Vietnam negotiating the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) asked Michael Cohen why he worked for Donald Trump for 10 years if he was a “con man.”
“Mr. Cohen, how long did you work at the White House?” Jordan asked.
“I never worked at the White House,” Cohen said.
“That’s the point isn’t it Mr. Cohen,” Jordan said smiling.
“No sir,” Cohen said insisting he never wanted a job in Trump’s White House — Jim Jordan pushed back and said, “Yes it is.”
“I was extremely proud to be personal attorney to the President of the United States of America. I did not want to go the White House,” Cohen said. “I was offered jobs — I can tell you a story about Mr. Trump reaming out Reince Priebus because I had not taken a job where Mr. Trump wanted me to.”
Rep. Jordan: "How long did you work in the White House?"
Michael Cohen: "I never worked in the White House."
Rep. Jordan: "That’s the point, isn't it?"

Of course this was another lie out of Michael Cohen’s mouth.
President Trump’s sons corrected the record on Wednesday.
Eric Trump immediately fired off a tweet after Cohen lied to Rep. Jim Jordan about wanting a White House job.
ERIC TRUMP: Michael was lobbying EVERYONE to be “Chief of Staff.” It was the biggest joke in the campaign and around the office. Did he just perjure himself again?

President Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr. chimed in and said, “Nailed it. It really was the biggest joke of the entire transition. The beginning of his bitterness was when he realized that was never going to happen. #Delusional.”

Even fake news CNN pounced on Michael Cohen for his whopper of a lie.
“[CNN has] been told by people in and around the process real time, [Cohen] very much wanted a job in the White House. Very much,” CNN’s Dana Bash said on Wednesday.
