Rep. David Cicilline says Sean Hannity should be subpoenaed over Michael Cohen

Rep. David Cicilline says Sean Hannity should be subpoenaed over Michael Cohen

He has plead guilty to lying under oath to Congress, among other crimes and said he did so to protect Mr. Trump.

"I am giving the Committee today a copy of the $130,000 wire transfer from me to Ms. Clifford's attorney during the closing days of the presidential campaign that was demanded by Ms. Clifford to maintain her silence about her affair with Mr. Trump".

All of the forthcoming testimony, if delivered, will probably not be as salacious as the first public Cohen hearing: Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump obviously have no intention of exposing their father's alleged misconduct, and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has stated that he does not anticipate "every hearing ... to be like the open hearing with Michael Cohen". This is Exhibit 4 to my testimony. Weisselberg and Donald Trump Jr., for example, signed one of the checks repaying Cohen for the money Cohen paid adult film actress Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet ahead of Election Day in 2016.

Cohen testified publicly Wednesday against Trump, calling his former boss a con man who lied about business dealings in Russian Federation.

That was itself fraudulent, but if Trump himself or the Trump Organization deducted those payments, that could also constitute tax fraud.

KHANNA: And do you know if this criminal financial scheme that the president, Allen Weisselberg, and Donald Trump Jr. are involved in is being investigated by the Southern District of NY? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) asked Cohen who could shed light on Trump's history of gaming assets for both insurance and tax avoidance goal. This concerns the much talked about Trump Tower in Moscow. To be clear: Mr. Trump knew of and directed the Trump Moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it.

Michael Cohen's verbal somersault, 'I lied, but I'm not a liar,' translated by a rhetoric expert

The line of questioning by freshman Representative Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach) has led to a future interview with a convicted Russian mafia member and real estate developer whose Trump Tower office was on the same floor as the suite of future President Donald Trump.

"Wow, just revealed that Michael Cohen wrote a 'love letter to Trump" manuscript for a new book that he was pushing, ' Trump tweeted Friday. Trump stated otherwise in earlier statements. Sater also reportedly worked on securing Trump Tower Moscow, which Schiff and fellow Intelligence committee Democrats will test him on. He claimed that Trump made racist comments against African Americans, and people in African countries.

So it may be some time before the Justice Department could authorize him to talk to Congress - but that isn't stopping lawmakers from asking for him.

The Republicans on the hearing committee called Cohen a liar who lied before to the Congress under oath. "But what we're about is just making sure that government is accountable, and this administration, this branch is accountable", the House Oversight and Reform Committee chairman said.

Among the instances they cite was Cohen's contention that he did not seek employment in the White House after Trump was elected.
