Democrats on Capitol Hill are demanding an investigation after a ??bombshell report from Buzzfeed news that claims President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.
??The alleged false testimony centered around the Trump Tower Moscow project before the 2016 election.
??“He is a weak person.
What he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence so he’s lying about a project that everybody knew about.” ??Buzzfeed is citing two unnamed officials who say Cohen told the special counsel’s office that ??Trump told him to deceive Congress about the proposed deal.
??Democrats told the Washington Post that if the report is accurate, Trump must be held accountable...some even raising the idea of impeachment.
??Congressman Joaquin Castro, the brother of 2020 Democratic candidate Julian Castro said on Twitter, “If the Buzzfeed story is true, President Trump must resign or be impeached.” ??The report also says Mueller’s office has more evidence saying Cohen’s testimony is backed up by quote, “interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents.” ??Back in November, the former Trump fixer admitted that he told Congress that Trump’s efforts to build the tower ended in January of 2016,??However, that reportedly continued through June.
Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison in December.
??Congressman Adam Schiff, the chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee wrote, “We will do what’s necessary to find out if it’s true.” ??
