Cohen 'Lied About So Many Things,' 'But He Said No Collusion'

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

Only, unlike Alexander's single bad day in the children's classic by Judith Viorst, Mr. Trump's awful troubles seem to have lengthened into weeks, months and, possibly, years.

As he left the House intelligence interview, Cohen said he would be returning to Capitol Hill on March 6 for another round of questioning with that panel.

Cohen, who is expected to begin a three-year prison sentence in May, told the House oversight committee on Wednesday that "it seems unbelievable that I was so mesmerized by Donald Trump that I was willing to do things for him that I knew were absolutely wrong".

But he also came armed with a pile documents about Mr. Trump, including hush money checks to coverup his affairs with women, among other misdeeds. 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 objective. For Trump's critics this testimony only confirmed what they had long believed, that Trump was a liar, a racist and unfit for the presidency of the U.S. For those who support Trump the testimony did not change their positive feelings for him, and instead, confirmed their beliefs of an unjust witch hunt for a leader that they do not like. He is a conman. "He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National Committee emails", he said.

"Does he know about other hush money payments?" "I stated that we stopped negotiating in January 2016", he said. This concerns the much talked about Trump Tower in Moscow.

That includes the potential Trump Tower Moscow real estate project. In the wake of the testimony of Trump's former fixer, there's good news for fans on both fronts: on Thursday, reports emerged that two House committees are pursuing interviews with key figures in the president's business and campaign, including Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Felix Sater, and Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg.

During his appearance on the ABC show "This Week", New York Rep. Jerrold Nadler told host George Stephanopoulos that he meant to issue document requests to more than 60 people as the House Judiciary Committee (which Nadler chairs) begins to investigate Trump's numerous scandals, according to Politico.

Sometimes Trump overstated the value of his properties to make them appear more valuable and himself seem more wealthy, Cohen said.

Weisselberg was granted limited immunity by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY to testify to a grand jury in connection with its investigation of campaign finance violations related to the hush money paid in 2016 to Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels.

The latest vote count shows three Senate Republicans - Sens. In 2013, President Trump testified that, quote: 'Not many.

His dubious emergency declaration is tied up in federal courts across the country where judges must now decide whether he can claim the billions for his wall - without obtaining Congress' approval - which legal scholars say is blatantly illegal.

"Yes", said Res, estimating the number "instinctively" as "lots".
