(VIDEO)Which Michael Cohen Should We Believe? The One Who Blames POTUS Trump For All His Problems, Or The One Who Admits It Was All His Own Fault?

Michael Cohen gave testimony to the House Oversight Committee today, and during his closing remarks, he blamed President Trump for all of his misfortune, including his “loss of freedom.”

MY LOYALTY TO MR. TRUMP HAS COST ME EVERYTHING, MY FAMILY’S HAPPINESS, FRIENDSHIPS, MY LAW LICENSE, MY COMPANY, MY LIVELIHOOD, MY HONOR, MY REPUTATION AND SOON MY FREEDOM.

AND WHEN YOU FAILED TO PAY $1.4 MILLION IN TAXES, I GOT CONSTITUENTS THAT DON’T MAKE THAT IN A LIFETIME, WHEN YOU FAILED TO PAY $1.4 MILLION IN TAXES TO THE U.S. TREASURY, WAS THAT OUT OF SOME BLIND LITTLETY TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES?
