Cohen tears up at hearing end

President Donald Trump’s former attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen choked up on Wednesday as Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings made his closing remarks after a day’s worth of grilling by lawmakers on Capitol Hill on what he knew about Trump’s maneuvers, before and after Trump won the White House.

President Donald Trump’s former attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen choked up on Wednesday as Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings made his closing remarks after a day’s worth of grilling by lawmakers on Capitol Hill on what he knew about Trump’s maneuvers, before and after Trump won the White House.

Cohen assailed the president’s character in the often times tense congressional hearing, calling Trump a “conman” who knew in advance about the release of stolen emails aimed at hurting his 2016 election Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

But Cohen, the Republican president’s onetime “fixer,” said he had no direct evidence that Trump colluded with Moscow to bolster his White House campaign, a key line of inquiry in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation which has dogged Trump during his two years in office.
