BAWN-(WASHINGTON D.C.) President Trump’s former lawyer testified this entire week in front of the House Oversight Committee as well as other committees, painting the U.S.President as a racist, a liar,and a cheat. Also, for the record-Black America World News previewed the testimony live.
Reports show that Cohen did reveal documents that indicate tax fraud and also he accused the president of “criminal conduct and racism.” Cohen testified that Trump knew of the hacked DNC emails before WikiLeaks released them, according to his prepared testimony.
Hush money payments
A portion of Cohen’s testimony to Congress was about his involvement in and knowledge of hush money payments made during the 2016 election. Cohen testified about hush money paid to Stephanie “Stormy” Daniels (pictured, above) and also Playboy model Karen McDougal to keep both ladies quiet about an alleged affairs with Trump, and other issues.
Cohen did say he paid Daniels $130,000 on the eve of the 2016 presidential election at Trump’s direction to buy her silence about one-night stand the real-estate mogul allegedly had with her a decade earlier.
While Cohen could not readily prove that Trump colluded with the Russians-a key in the territory was when Cohen testified that he “was in Mr. Trump’s office” in July 2016, when Stone called Trump to warn about an impending “WikiLeaks drop of emails.”
That matches the broader evidence Mueller has on Stone, Trump’s longtime confidant. The special counsel’s indictment states that “around June and July 2016,” Stone told senior Trump campaign officials about the email dump. In legal terms, Mueller believes he has the evidence to back up that claim, which he must do to prove Stone lied about it.
Michael Cohen is due back to Capitol Hill next week to continue what has been a dramatic series of public and private hearings, as he apologizes for initially lying to lawmakers and divulges what he says Trump knew about financial infractions and Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
For the Record Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for lying to Congress during previous testimony in 2017. He’s scheduled to begin his sentence in May. (glg)
