Analysis: Maybe the truth, the whole truth–and a whole lot more from Michael Cohen


The following is an excerpt from an article in The Hill.

Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, completed three full days of testimony before Congress this week, two of those days behind closed doors. Don’t worry if you missed the public appearance. Here are some notable moments from his testimony:

Biggest headline if you’re anti-Trump

Trump is a tax cheat, womanizer, liar and racist. He’s also “filthy” with Russia contacts.

Biggest headline if you’re pro-Trump

Cohen actually may have assisted Trump in the Russia investigation when he said he knew of no evidence of Russia collusion. And he further discredited the Democratic-funded anti-Trump “dossier.”
