Michael Cohen can’t help it. He lies automatically, without even having to think about it. In his testimony before congress, he told Jim Jordan that he never wanted to work in the White House. Even liberal outlets such as the Daily Beast, CNN and MSNBC have called him out on the lie.
He was openly lobbying for chief of staff and got very angry when hem wasn’t offered a job in the Trump administration. he has now been referred to the DOJ for committing perjury once again. He will never learn. His biggest problem is he is using Hillary’s lawyer, who doesn’t care about exposing him to even more prison time.
Former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen potentially made another false statement during his testimony on Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform when he claimed during Rep. Jim Jordan’s (R-OH) questioning that he did not want a job in the White House when Trump won the presidency.
Jordan, the ranking member of the committee, closed his opening questions to Cohen by asking about his desire to get a White House job.
“Mr. Cohen, how long did you work in the White House?” Jordan asked.
“I never worked in the White House,” Cohen replied.
“That’s the point, isn’t it, Mr. Cohen?” Jordan followed up.
“No, sir,” Cohen responded.
“Yes, it is,” Jordan said.
“No, it’s not,” Cohen said.
“You wanted to work in the White House,” Jordan said.
“No, sir,” Cohen said.
“You didn’t get brought to the dance,” Jordan said.
“Sir, I was extremely proud to be personal attorney to the President of the United States of America,” Cohen said. “I did not go to the White House. I was offered jobs. I can tell you a story of Mr. Trump reaming out Reince Priebus because I had not taken a job where Mr. Trump wanted me to, which is working with Don McGahn at the White House General Counsel’s office.”
