republicans attempting to intimidate witness Cohen

republicans Jordan and Meadow discounted Cohen's testimony BEFORE he testified before Congress on Wed. Now they have asked the DOJ to investigate Michael Cohen for perjury. This is scary. They should be charged with attempting to intimidate a witness. This is another step on the way to turning our country into an oppressive government ruled by a few powerful people.

Note they put out this statement on Feb. 26, 2019, the day before Cohen testified before Congress.

The facts are this: When Cohen testifies, he will surely lie. He has done it before. He will do it again. No one should be afraid of the truth, but everyone should be concerned when the deck is stacked in favor of falsehood.


After Cohen testified, they called for the DOJ to investigate him.

Two of President Trump’s top Republican allies on Capitol Hill are asking the Justice Department to investigate Michael Cohen for perjury, accusing the onetime Trump attorney of making intentional false statements during his public testimony this week.

“Mr. Cohen’s testimony before the Committee on Oversight and Reform … was a spectacular and brazen attempt to knowing and willfully testify falsely and fictitiously to numerous material facts,” Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) wrote in a letter to Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday. “His testimony included intentionally false statements designed to make himself look better on a national stage.”
