Trump Allies Want DOJ to Investigate Michael Cohen For Perjury

Trump Allies Want DOJ to Investigate Michael Cohen For Perjury

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) talks to other guests before the start of a funeral service for former Rep. John Dingell on February 14, 2019 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC.

Two key Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have asked the Justice Department to look into whether President Donald Trump's former attorney and personal "fixer" Michael Cohen committed perjury during his testimony to the committee Wednesday. He is a con man. "The country has seen Mr. Trump court white supremacists and bigots", Cohen said in his opening remarks.

Cohen said Trump did not directly tell him to lie, but "he would look me in the eye and tell me there's no business in Russian Federation and then go out and lie to the American people by saying the same thing".

"Congress can not perform its oversight function if witnesses who appear before its committees do not provide truthful testimony", said the letter from Jordan, a Champaign County Republican, and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows of SC, who is also on the Oversight Committee. The View's Sunny Hostin called out Meadows for using Patton "as a prop," and she later ripped the congressman for claiming that the move wasn't racist because he has black relatives. "How do you reconcile the two of those?"

"It was a very good conversation", said Meadows. "I wouldn't go anywhere without him", Wallace says while holding the man's hand.

After Meadows brought a black HUD official to the House floor for a non-speaking role in his attempt to prove Donald Trump is not a racist, the North Carolina Republican got emotional when progressive freshman Rep. Examples he gave were of Trump allegedly saying African Americans wouldn't vote for him because they're "too stupid", asking him to name a single country "run by a black person that wasn't a shithole" and reacting to a poor neighborhood with the quip "only black people could live that way". "Tlaib politely pointed it out - and has now had to spend 24 hours reassuring her white colleague that's not a bad person". "He said that he has black relatives in his family", said Hostin.




"Having endured the public comments of racism from the sitting president, as being a Black person, I can only imagine what is being said in private".

"To prop up one member of our entire race of black people and say that nullifies that is totally insulting", Lawrence said.

Tlaib was met with a strong rebuke, not only from Meadows - who countered that "it's racist to suggest that I asked [Patton] to come in here for that reason" - but from fellow Democrat and House Oversight Committee chair Elijah Cummings (partial transcript below).

"A lot of people have asked me about whether Mr. Trump knew about the release of the hacked Democratic National Committee emails ahead of time", Cohen said in the prepared testimony. "She loves this family". Patton's appearance at the hearing remains somewhat mysterious, however, as she'd reportedly been expected to appear at work as usual this morning. If I wanted to say that I would have.

Several high-profile liberals shared the video, including actress Sarah Silverman, filmmaker Michael Moore, and Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson.
