Michael Cohen Disbarred After Conviction for Lying Under Oath

Home Elections  Michael Cohen Ready To Reveal The Dirty And Disgusting Secrets Of Donald Trump By Farron Cousins

The Republican National Committee is telling Michael Cohen, its former deputy finance director who has turned on President Trump, to "have fun in prison" as part of a coordinated war room effort to push back against his expected anti-Trump public testimony on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

The alleged criminal conduct is related to a hush-money payment that Cohen facilitated to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who says she had an affair with Trump about a decade ago, the Journal reported.

Whilst it is true that the president's support network will probably be quite successful in repelling attacks from a convicted felon, particularly when it comes to his own base, Cohen's testimony could still cause Trump some serious problems.

Separately, Cohen also pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation for lying to Congress about his involvement in a Trump Tower project in Moscow that he brokered during Trump's campaign.

Cohen, who once said he would "take a bullet for Trump", will appear before three committees over the next three days - two of them in closed session and one publicly.

An unnamed source close to Cohen told the Wall Street Journal that Cohen was prepared to discuss Trump's "lies, racism and cheating" as well as "evidence of criminal conduct since Mr Trump became president", but gave no specifics to the newspaper. But a judge granted a request from Cohen's lawyers to push the date to May 6 so Cohen could recover from shoulder surgery and prepare for his congressional testimony.

The House Oversight Committee will steer clear of the intelligence committee's inquiry into Russia's role in the election and alleged links between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tweeted the federal statutes regarding witness intimidation, implying that Gaetz, a Trump loyalist, crossed the legal line ahead of Cohen's public testimony before the House Oversight Committee.

Asked during the Sky interview if she felt she made a mistake going to Syria, Begum said: "In a way, yes". From there, she has made it known she wants to return to the United Kingdom with her newborn baby.

Cohen had been scheduled to speak to the three committees earlier this month, but rescheduled all of those appearances for different reasons.

Cohen's appearance before the congressional committees has already been postponed several times.

The press secretary's comments came as Cohen privately testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday. She also said we can expect more of the same from him this week as he go before Congress.

Sen. Richard Burr, chair of the Senate intelligence committee arrives for Cohen's testimony.

Trump denies the allegations and says that Cohen lied to get a lighter sentence.

Cohen was one of Trump's closest aides and once said he would "take a bullet" for him but he turned against his former boss past year and is cooperating with prosecutors after pleading guilty to tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

The Senate's Russian Federation investigation is ongoing.
