Michael Cohen Hit With MASSIVE Karma After Trashing Trump

Michael Cohen Hit With MASSIVE Karma After Trashing Trump

Citing Michael Cohen’s previous false statements to Congress, House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) have formally referred Michael Cohen to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for potential criminal prosecution.

Specifically, they urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to consider prosecuting Cohen for making fraudulent statements during his testimony in February 2019.

Republican members of the House Oversight Committee highlighted six specific falsehoods that Cohen allegedly made in a letter to the Department of Justice, urging appropriate action. They revealed that Cohen had also provided misleading information during a 2019 deposition to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

Republicans argue that Cohen's testimony, which they claim contains falsehoods, is being utilized as the foundation of a politically motivated case against a former president and a candidate for the same office.

The letter outlines several instances of Cohen's alleged fraudulent behavior, including instances for which he had previously pleaded guilty in federal court. Among the falsehoods listed, Cohen allegedly falsely claimed that he had not pursued any positions in President Donald Trump's administration, despite contradictory information from the Southern District of New York U.S. Attorney’s Office. Additionally, the Committee asserted that Cohen misrepresented his involvement in setting up a Twitter account, failed to disclose contracts with foreign governments, contradicted his own written testimony, and falsely claimed that his actions were driven by "blind loyalty" to Trump, a claim disputed by federal prosecutors.

Cohen admitted to lying to Congress during a 2019 deposition before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) in a separate incident occurring in 2023. In response to questioning about whether he had received instructions to falsify financial figures, Cohen admitted to providing false testimony. Following this admission, HPSCI once again referred Cohen to the DOJ for making false statements with intent to deceive and perjure.

Presently, Trump faces 34 felony counts related to falsifying business records, primarily stemming from allegations of paying hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to influence an election.

Cohen, formerly Trump's personal attorney, has encountered numerous legal issues related to his interactions with the former president and personal matters. In 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to federal charges including tax evasion, campaign finance violations, and making false statements to Congress. The campaign finance violations stemmed from payments made to two women alleging affairs with Trump. Cohen also admitted to failing to report substantial income, resulting in millions of dollars in unpaid taxes.

During the 2016 campaign, Cohen provided false testimony to Congress regarding the timeline of a planned Trump Tower project in Moscow, falsely claiming that discussions had ended earlier than they actually did. Following his involvement in civil lawsuits and serving three years in federal prison, Cohen was released from home confinement in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cohen's testimony before Congress implicated Trump in unethical behavior and suggested potential criminal activity, contributing to ongoing investigations. He has also been involved in various civil lawsuits, both as a plaintiff and defendant, including cases related to legal fees. Cohen's past loyalty to Trump has been overshadowed by his testimony and subsequent actions, indicating a significant rift in their relationship.

The letter also highlighted Cohen's role as a key witness in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's ongoing criminal prosecution of President Trump, with Bragg reportedly relying heavily on Cohen's testimony and credibility. According to the letter, Cohen's advisor, Lanny Davis, boasted that Bragg's prosecution of Trump was largely based on Cohen's 2019 congressional testimony.

Jordan and Comer assert that witnesses who knowingly fabricate claims after swearing to tell the truth are guilty of perjury.
