Trump branded a 'conman' as ex-lawyer savages him in Congress

Michael Cohen Live Stream: Watch Ex-Trump Lawyer's House Testimony

On February 27, Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer, testified before the House Oversight and Reform Committee for six hours.

The first of six Trump aides charged in the Trump-Russia investigation to testify publicly about crimes committed during the 2016 campaign and in the months that followed, Cohen also delivered biting personal commentary on a president he said never expected to win in the first place.

At a news conference following the conclusion of a summit in Hanoi with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un - which produced no agreement on denuclearization - Trump said Cohen "lied a lot" in the congressional hearing.

Trump insisted that Cohen's testimony Wednesday had provided no evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign with Russian Federation in the 2016 United States election.

Cohen also said that Trump asked him to tell the press and the public that Trump was "not knowledgeable" about the payments made to Stormy Daniels to silence her regarding their sexual affair in the run-up to the 2016 election.

But his claims have drawn the ire of Trump allies who have insisted that Cohen is not credible - and are now asking the Justice Department to investigate him for potentially having lied to Congress again, during a public hearing this week.

Cohen's claims that Trump had advance knowledge of the emails contradict the president's assertions that he was in the dark, and it is not clear how legally problematic that could be for Trump anyway.

Stone, even though he is under a gag order, texted reporters Wednesday: "Mr. Cohen's statement is not true". "And I said, I wonder why he didn't lie about that, too, like everything else". Trump would direct Cohen to call small business owners to whom Trump owed money and tell them they would receive no payment or a reduced payment.

Last year, Cohen implicated Trump in a crime, saying he directed him to violate campaign finance laws.

Cohen said Trump secretly directed negotiations for a Moscow real estate deal, while publicly claiming during the campaign that he had no business interests in Russian Federation, which would have posed a conflict. Cohen said Trump pressured him to suppress the truth about his college grades and the real reason he did not serve in Vietnam - a deferment later attributed to bone spurs.

"Mr Trump directed the Trump Foundation, which is supposed to be a charitable organization, to repay the fake bidder".

Cohen is due to begin a three-year prison sentence in May, and described himself as cooperative with multiple investigations in hopes of reducing his time behind bars.

It was at the House Oversight Committee where Cohen made news Wednesday by calling Trump a "racist, a con man and a cheat". "I blindly followed his demands", Cohen told the panel. They took pains to condemn Cohen for his false statement to Congress, acknowledging the considerable baggage he brought as a witness.

In his book, Let Me Finish, Mr Christie writes that Mr Trump "is a man who wakes up every morning with unparalleled self-confidence".

That's what Cohen says he is now, particularly for his own children.

He pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations involving illegal hush money and falsely testifying to Congress that Trump Tower Moscow negotiations had ended before the campaign.

He added that Trump would say, "Michael, it never happened" or "It's a lie".

"I wouldn't use the word 'colluding.' Was there something odd about the back-and-forth praise with President Putin?"

Republicans zeroed in on Cohen as someone who can not be believed because he lied to Congress before and is going to prison for it. Stone said Julian Assange had told him that within a couple of days there would be a massive email dump that would hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign. The emails turned out to have been stolen by Russian hackers.

Cohen pleaded guilty previous year to lying to Congress about the Moscow project, but Schiff said he answered all of the panel's questions. Repeatedly, they used their questioning of Cohen to set up new lines of inquiry, asking him for the names of other people in Trump's orbit that they should interview.
