President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen tore into Rep. Jim Jordan, the House Oversight Committee's Republican leader, during dramatic testimony Wednesday on Capitol Hill – telling him at one point, "Shame on you."
Cohen snapped at Jordan, of Ohio, after the ranking Republican claimed that Cohen was disputing a federal court's findings in his criminal case, and that he was remorseless for the crimes to which he has pleaded guilty.
"His remorse is nonexistent," Jordan said. "He just debated a member of Congress, saying, 'I really didn't do anything wrong with the false bank things that I'm guilty of and going to prison for.'"
"Mr. Jordan, that's not what I said," Cohen responded. "And you know that that's not what I said."
"I pled guilty and I take responsibility for my actions," Cohen continued. "Shame on you, Mr. Jordan. That's not what I said."
Cohen struck plea agreements last year with federal prosecutors in New York and with special counsel Robert Mueller's team as part of the ongoing probe of Russian meddling and possible Trump campaign collusion during the 2016 election.
He pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and lying to Congress, and is scheduled to begin a three-year prison term in May.
