Jordan, Meadows ask DOJ to investigate Michael Cohen for perjury
By Morgan Chalfant - 02/28/19 12:57 PM EST

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.

“While testifying under oath, Mr. Cohen made what appear to be numerous willfully and intentionally false statements of material fact contradicted by the record established by the Justice Department in United States v. Cohen,” Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) wrote in a letter to Attorney General William Barr on Thursday. “His testimony included intentionally false statements designed to make himself look better on a national stage.”

“There are other instances in which Mr. Cohen's statements to the Committee were immediately contradicted by witnesses with firsthand knowledge of the subject matter,” wrote Jordan and Meadows, who sit on the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

In a six-page letter with more than 20 pages of exhibits, Jordan and Meadows suggested that Cohen made deliberate false statements over the course of his nearly seven hours of testimony Wednesday.

Some of his answers to lawmakers, they asserted, contradicted court filings made by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. Others were “immediately contradicted by witnesses with firsthand knowledge of the subject matter,” they wrote.

The letter to Barr picks up on many of the themes that anchored Republican attacks of the onetime Trump loyalist during the explosive public hearing. It paints Cohen as a liar driven by self-interest and an unreliable witness.
