CONVICTED LIAR COHEN: TRUMP IS A RACIST, CON MAN AND A CHEAT - Michael Cohen, the former fixer about to begin a three-year prison term, denounced President Trump during an explosive congressional hearingWednesday with a series of allegations, calling his former boss a racist, testifying he was aware of adviser Roger Stone's talks with WikiLeaks about stolen Democratic emails during the 2016 campaign and alleging he oversaw an array of illicit schemes during the 10 years they worked together ... "He is a racist. He is a conman. And he is a cheat," Cohen testified. Still, Trump's former personal lawyer stopped short of saying he had evidence that Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia in 2016, asserting he had only “suspicions."
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee repeatedly poked holes in Cohen's credibility, pointing out that he has been convicted for lying to Congress and suggesting he turned against Trump only after not landing a White House job. Cohen is set to testify in private before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday. He is scheduled to report to prison May 6 to start serving a three-year sentence for campaign finance and other violations.
