Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows ask Justice Department to probe Cohen for perjury [View all]

WASHINGTON — Two of President Trump’s top defenders on the House Oversight Committee issued a perjury referral to the Justice Department on Thursday seeking charges against Michael Cohen for allegedly lying during his high-profile public testimony.

GOP Reps. Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr asking that he charge Cohen for knowingly making false statements to Congress.

They said he lied when he claimed he never wanted a White House job, said he “never defrauded any bank,” denied any foreign government ties, and more.

Cohen’s testimony “was a spectacular and brazen attempt to knowingly and willfully testify falsely and fictitiously to numerous material facts,” Jordan and Meadows said in their letter.


Maybe they think this move will make Trump look more truthful. If so, they are chasing the impossible dream.
