Two of President Donald Trump's biggest allies in Congress on Thursday told the Justice Department that Michael Cohen appears to have lied in his sworn testimony to Congress, where he made a slew of damning claims against Trump.
House Oversight Committee ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr accusing Trump's former personal lawyer and fixer of making a series of "intentionally false statements designed to make himself look better on a national stage."
"Mr. Cohen's testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Reform," they wrote, "was a spectacular and brazen attempt to knowing [sic] and willfully testify falsely and fictitiously to numerous material facts."
The two Republicans want the Justice Department to investigate whether Cohen's allegedly false testimony broke the law.
Cohen, 52, appeared before three congressional committees this week, having already pleaded guilty last year to tax evasion and campaign-finance violations, as well as lying to Congress in prior testimony in 2017. He is scheduled to report to prison in May for a three-year sentence.
Cohen's spokesman Lanny Davis responded to the accusations in a statement to CNBC:
Mr. Cohen testified truthfully before the House Oversight Committee. He took full responsibility for his guilty pleas. He also backed up much of his testimony with documents. It may not be surprising that two pro-Trump Committee members known [sic] have a baseless criminal referral. In my opinion, it is a sad misuse of the criminal justice system with the aura of pure partisanship.
