Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels famously said, “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.”
Democrats stand by this tactic to this day.
On Wednesday former Trump attorney and criminal liar Michael Cohen testified before the House Oversight Committee.
Mr. Cohen told the committee that President Trump knew about the Hillary Clinton email dump in advance.
Michael Cohen: “Mr. Trump knew from Roger Stone in advance about the Wikileaks drop of emails.”
This is one of Michael Cohen's more audacious claims against Trump: that he knew about a WikiLeaks email dump in advance.

Of course, this was another lie by Michael Cohen.
Later today Wikileaks, once again, called out Cohen for lying under oath.
Wikileaks: Donald Trump’s estranged lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has been sentenced to three years in prison for lying to the FBI, will testify today before Congress that Trump knew about the Wikileaks release in July 2016 during a call with Roger Stone.
Wikileaks had already publicly announced its pending publications and has repeatedly denied speaking to Roger Stone.
This was just another Michael Cohen lie.
And Democrats keep repeating it hoping some day it will be true.
(note that WikiLeaks had already publicly announced its pending publications and has always denied speaking to Roger Stone)

In fact the pending DNC email release was public knowledge.
If Trump "knew in advance" about the pending publication of hacked DNC emails, so did everyone who followed the WikiLeaks Twitter account. It was public information! That's what's so maddening about this ridiculous narrative pic.twitter.com/mCYQxNUOZK

Julian Assange announced the pending investigation in June.
Over/under on news outlets today who'll underscore Cohen's testimony that Trump in July 2016 knew "in advance" and "ahead of time" of a Wikileaks dump damaging to Clinton, and leave out that Assange announced this on TV on June 12? https://t.co/kfRGoO04Ok @wikileaks
