President Trump took aim at his former lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen all the way from Vietnam.
President Trump is currently in Vietnam for an historical summit with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un to continue negotiating the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The Democrats and Deep State perfectly timed the Michael Cohen dog-and-pony show to take place while President Trump is on foreign soil.
Michael Cohen, a convicted liar who was just disbarred, testified in a public Congressional hearing on Wednesday.
In his opening statement, Cohen called President Trump a “racist” a “con man” and “a cheat.”
Mr. Cohen also testified that Donald Trump knew Roger Stone had spoken to Julian Assange ahead of the Wikileaks drop of the DNC emails.
“I was in Mr. Trump’s office when his secretary announced that Roger Stone was on the phone,” Cohen said.
“Mr. Trump put Mr. Stone on the speakerphone. Mr. Stone told Mr. Trump that he had just gotten off the phone with Julian Assange and that Mr. Assange told Mr. Stone that, within a couple of days, there would be a massive dump of emails that would damage Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Mr. Trump responded by stating to the effect of ‘wouldn’t that be great.'”
Of course this is a lie because Roger Stone never spoke to Julian Assange and he had no advance knowledge that WikiLeaks was going to disseminate Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails.
Robert Mueller even made this clear in his indictment of Roger Stone — if anyone had evidence that Roger Stone spoke to Julian Assange, it would be Robert Mueller and the special counsel would have clearly stated it in their indictment of Roger Stone.
Cohen also told the Oversight Committee on Wednesday that he has no direct evidence Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia.
“I do not. I want to be clear. But, I have my suspicions,” Cohen said.
Media was set ablaze after Politico published Michael Cohen’s opening statement late Tuesday night — and the President responded.
President Trump fired off a tweet ahead of the hearing, accusing Michael Cohen of lying in order to reduce his prison time. ‘Using Crooked Hillary’s lawyer [Lanny Davis]! Trump added.
TRUMP: Michael Cohen was one of many lawyers who represented me (unfortunately). He had other clients also. He was just disbarred by the State Supreme Court for lying & fraud. He did bad things unrelated to Trump. He is lying in order to reduce his prison time. Using Crooked’s lawyer!
