Oversight Dem: 'I imagine' chairman will ask for investigation into Cohen for alleged perjury
By Brett Samuels - 03/10/19 10:39 AM EDT

Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.) said Sunday she expects House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) will ultimately refer longtime Trump associate Michael Cohen to the Department of Justice for alleged perjury related to his testimony late last month.

Hill, a member of the Oversight panel, said on "Fox News Sunday" that she's unsure if Cohen lied to lawmakers when he said he "never asked for, nor would I accept, a pardon from" Trump, despite reports that his former attorney raised the idea with the president's lawyers last year.

"I don’t know if he lied or not," Hill said. "I think that this is, Chairman Cummings is incredibly deliberate. I know that he's reviewing the entire testimony, all the transcripts with [ranking member Jim Jordan (R-Ohio)], who also is going to make sure that we get to the bottom of this."

Lanny Davis, who currently represents Cohen, told The Wall Street Journal last week that Cohen directed his then-attorney last summer “to explore possibilities of a pardon at one point with Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani as well as other lawyers advising President Trump.”

I call BS.  The Rats are thrilled with Cohen's lies and will protect him.

I saw this interview.  She's playing "good cop."
I will NOT comply.

It must be a case of good cop/good cop. Cummings had previously said this, which is an interesting thing to say about a Jewish guy, during the Easter season....


"Sure we're going to follow up on it. I told Michael Cohen that if he came in and he lied, that I would nail him to the cross. And I meant that," Cummings said. "What we're going to do, we're going to be methodical in my committee. We're going to look at all the evidence, and we will make a determination. The most important thing for me is integrity. I will protect the integrity of our committee."

I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Cohen didn't deliver the knock out punch.  He's back on the bus.

And didn't the Republicans already request an investigation by the DOJ for perjury committed during his televised testimony?
