Cohen’s Testimony against Trump Was Plainly Unethical

If you watched the Democrat’s little circus this week in front of the House Oversight Committee, you may have been alternately angered and amused. The Cohen hearing was an echo of the Kavanaugh hearings. It was a blatant misuse of that hallowed room in the Capitol. Here’s what I wrote for Fox News :

Congress and the corrupt Washington Establishment set a new low for abuse of power Wednesday with the testimony of Michael Cohen before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

As President Trump’s former personal lawyer, Cohen can’t ethically testify to Congress about his interactions with Trump. Cohen knows this. Congress knows this. Special Counsel Robert Mueller knows this.

That the committee hearing took place anyway shows the lawless depth to the partisan Deep State abuse targeting President Trump.


Cohen’s testimony is not credible. He has a demonstrated record of not only lying to Congress, but of violating his ethical duties as a lawyer.

Cohen’s testimony did more than abuse Trump’s rights. Congress benefitted from this abuse and arguably obtained confidential documents belonging to President Trump in violation of its own rules, the president’s rights and the law.

Sure enough, the Democratic-controlled hearing was set up through Clinton, Inc., consigliore Lanny Davis, who is representing Cohen for free.

Judicial Watch uncovered Hillary Clinton emails showing Davis to be her biggest fan.

For example, on October 20, 2010, lawyer Davis wrote Hillary Clinton an email saying: “Thank you H for who you are and what you do,” followed in the exchange by another with “PS. I swear you look younger and better every time I see you, Good night dear Hillary. Lanny.”

So as we witness Cohen – with encouragement from Democrats – trampling over the rights of President Trump, remember this abuse would never have happened without the involvement of Team Clinton.

The Clinton team and Democratic National Committee directly colluded with the Obama Justice Department and FBI to target Donald Trump during the presidential campaign.

This led to illicit spying on Trump and his team, an attempted coup by pro-Clinton Deep Staters, and the related appointment of a special counsel to try the further the aim of overthrowing President Trump.

And now the coup effort continues through hearings featuring Cohen this week set up in collusion with Hillary Clinton’s closest associates.

Why would Democrats, who cheered for Cohen to be indicted just a few months ago, now give him a platform to speak to the nation?

The answer is simple: They’re still not over Hillary Clinton losing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

Michael Cohen is a criminal and Michael Cohen is a political prop. Michael Cohen is the furthest thing from a victim.

At the hearing Wednesday we witnessed history. Unfortunately for the reputation of the House, it is the type of history that will live in infamy.

We have a federal Freedom of Information Act lawsuit pending for Michael Cohen’s alleged influence peddling and fraud related to his attempts to cash in on his relationship with President Trump. Also, we recently sent an official complaint to the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General (IG) calling for investigations into leaks of information about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The complaint asks for an investigation of leaks to BuzzFeed suggesting that President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.

Neither the abuses of power in an effort to end the Trump presidency, nor Judicial Watch’s relentless legal efforts to expose these abuses to the light of day will end soon.

“BREAKING: Trump Official Drops Cohen Bombshell [REPORT]
March 1, 2019

Department of Housing and Urban Development official Lynne Patton dropped a bombshell about President Trump’s disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen.

Patton recently came into the spotlight for her appearance at Cohen’s hearing. Patton is a longtime Trump family associate that was introduced to the family by Cohen and considered Cohen a close friend before his shocking betrayal of President Trump.

Patton posted on facebook in January that she can “personally confirm that the ONLY reason Michael Cohen ‘turned on’ the President of the United States is because Mueller threatened to throw his wife in jail for up to 30 years. Period.”

Patton’s post went on to detail why Mueller made the threat. She stated that evidence confirmed that Cohen’s wife was involved in shady financial dealings. Patton pointed out that Cohen’s wife was “part and parcel” of Cohen’s act of “Making False Statements to a Financial Institution.”

In the facebook post, Patton gave details of personal communication between her and Cohen that further proves the accusation. She closed her statement saying that she cut off communication with Cohen when he was caught “falsely claiming he could leverage his connection with the President” in order to defraud multiple companies of millions of dollars.

Patton confirmed what we already knew. Michael Cohen is a proven liar and fraud. As Patton pointed out, “Michael Cohen always wanted to be famous. Sadly, he has gotten his wish.”..

Cohen and Stormy have exposed themselves so utterly by violating attorney client and non disclosure. Trump lawyers could feast on their bones for decades.

Congress has a specific job to do described by the Constitution. Part of that job does not include needless,unwarranted harassment of the President and dereliction of their sworn duty. This government is unhinged and unbalanced.

Agreed...Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters have and are acting like rabid dogs attacking President Trump and now Elijah Cummings has joined them.

The three of them should be in a mental institution.

Let's not forget that while President Trump was in Viet Nam negotiating with NK trying to get them to end their nuclear program, the dems did this - publicly trashed him in the MSM

Then again nothing important went on in Viet Nam-And there's no emergency on our southern border either.

The freaking Clintons. How in the hell is Lanny Davis, Trumps former lawyer’s lawyer? Outrageous. I am sooooo pissed about Lanny Davis, Clinton’s “fixer” now representing Cohen while he breaks and destroys attorney client privilege in America. This is too much and someone has to pay. The Clintons have to feel heat sometime, somehow?
