Lawyer Michael Cohen testifies on Capitol Hill about his dealings with his former client, Donald Trump.
Cummings adjourns the hearing. Thanks for following along with us!
Cummings thanks Cohen for coming forward and says its a part of his destiny leading to "a better Michael Cohen," "a better Donald Trump," and "a better America"
Cummings condemns Trump calling Cohen "a rat" says "we're better than that"
Cummings says it sounds like Cohen is "crying out for a new normal" and he's trying to make sure our "democracy stays intact"
Jordan concludes that Cohen's story isn't "what we should be focused on"
Jordan says that Cohen has said a lot of things that don't add up just in this hearing.
Cohen lectures the president about using a "bully pulpit" and "separating families," finally "you don't shut down the government before Christmas and New Years."
"My loyalty to Mr. Trump has cost me everything," he claims, he says that if Trump loses the 2020 election there will never be a peaceful transition of power.
Cohen shares some final thoughts...
Cummings says Meadows is "one of his best friends" and he says that he felt his pain in seeming to be called racist.
"I was not referring to you at all as a racist," Rep. Tlaib tells her colleague Mark Meadows.
Wow. Rashida Tlaib just turned this into a circus. This is crazy.— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 27, 2019
Wow. Rashida Tlaib just turned this into a circus. This is crazy.
Meadows demands her remarks be stricken from the record, she clarifies that she's not calling him a racist but insists that what he did was "a racist act in itself"
Rep. Jim Jordan demands that Rep. Tlaib clarify her remarks about Rep. Meadows and racism.
Rep. Tlaib calls it "racist in itself" that Rep. Meadows brought in a black woman as a "prop" to which he strongly objects
As a person of color, I think Rep. Tlaib is an idiot.
Rashida Tlaib going on a tear ... she's the one who said she wanted to impeach Trump ... though she referred to him as "the motherf**ker."
Rep. Rashida Tlaib says some of her colleagues "can't handle the truth" as she opens her questioning.
Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) up now asking Cohen about the Trump Foundation...
