And this is the big witness the Dims keep calling back. :zany:

Not only is he going to prison for having lied to Congress but he appers to have perjured himself several times the past week or so.


Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen directed his lawyer to ask the White House about a presidential pardon, contradicting his sworn testimony to Congress, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday evening.
The Journal had previously reported that Stephen Ryan, Mr. Cohen’s attorney when he was the target of several FBI raids last April, had approached President Trump’s legal team about a pardon.
But Lanny Davis, Cohen’s current lawyer, told the Journal that this had happened at Cohen’s request.
“During that time period, he directed his attorney to explore possibilities of a pardon at one point with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani as well as other lawyers advising President Trump,” Mr. Davis told the Journal, calling the discussions the “ongoing ‘dangling’ of a possible pardon.”
That would flatly contradict what Cohen told Congress just last week, a time when he is supposed to be cooperating with authorities to get a lesser sentence.
