GOP lawmakers rip Dems for calling Cohen to testify

Source: MSN

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, on Thursday criticized news that President Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen is set to publicly testify before the panel next month.

Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a statement earlier Thursday that Cohen had agreed to voluntarily testify on Feb. 7.

"Chairman Cummings promised to pursue rigorous, responsible, fact-based oversight," Jordan said in a statement. "However, the Chairman's announcement today suggests he will be using the committee as a venue for political theater rather than legitimate oversight."

Jordan knocked Cohen, saying he has pleaded guilty for misstatements he made to Congress while testifying about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign.

32. Jordan was a Ohio State wrestling coach who failed to report YEARS of sexual misconduct.

Jordan was an assistant wrestling coach with Ohio State University's wrestling program from 1987 to 1995. OSU opened an investigation in April 2018 that looked into allegations of sexual misconduct by the former wrestling team's physician, Richard Strauss.
Jordan had been aware of, but didn't respond to, allegations of sexual misconduct by Strauss. At least 8 former wrestlers came forward to vouch for that.

Yeah, he's a lowlife rat.

I do love good theater performance. Just do not know who it might be starring, Big Don, Jr., or Jimmy Jordan or the lesser ensemble. It is OK, we will wait and see.

16. The Freedumb caucus,

Yeah Cohen lied to Congress, but guess what, he got convicted for that and is sentenced to 3 years in jail and that was 1 of the indictments. Seeing as Cohen got nailed for lying to Congress he has an incentive to not lie again under oath or he can be charged again. Cohen has every reason to not lie on Feb. 7th. I can't wait. Trump is going to be publicly humiliated and brought down. This hearing will be OJ Simpson stuff, may set records for people watching. February 7th is a Thursday, I made sure my calendar is clear.

ps/ Attacking Cohen for lying to Congress could backfire if Cohen testifies that Trump told him what to lie about.

23. Jordan can go pound sand. I'm happy that Cohen voluteered to testify before the House. Now, we the

public can hear first hand what he has to say versus the dribbles we've gotten from the plea deals and court cases.

24. Jordan steps all over his own lying pretend rationale.

What buffoons these drumpf supporters are! First he says nothing to see, he's already been here, then he says he's been convicted for lying! So why wouldn't we want to bring him back and get to the truth since he lied so much before?

27. And we're all supposed to believe your rationale for not allowing this testimony?? Seems like to ..

all of us that you all selected picked the persons to be interviewed, limited severely the ?s asked of these persons, didn't call all of the relevant witnesses you should have called on, in other words, you obstructed justice and/or the truth. Mr. GYM Jordan.

28. Aww, poor Republicans

The American people are about to get to watch a person in open session and on live television state that Donald Trump instructed him to commit felonies on his behalf to affect the election. Then they will ask "why is Trump not charged with the same crime?". There will be no answer, and impeachment will begin.
