Investigations on Trump

Read: Michael Cohen’s opening statement to Congress

Chairman Cummings, Ranking Member Jordan, and Members of the
Committee, thank you for inviting me here today.
I have asked this Committee to ensure that my family be protected from
Presidential threats, and that the Committee be sensitive to the questions
pertaining to ongoing investigations. Thank you for your help and for your
I am here under oath to correct the record, to answer the Committee’s
questions truthfully, and to offer the American people what I know about
President Trump.
I recognize that some of you may doubt and attack me on my credibility. It
is for this reason that I have incorporated into this opening statement
documents that are irrefutable, and demonstrate that the information you
will hear is accurate and truthful.
Never in a million years did I imagine, when I accepted a job in 2007 to
work for Donald Trump, that he would one day run for President, launch a
campaign on a platform of hate and intolerance, and actually win. I regret
the day I said “yes” to Mr. Trump. I regret all the help and support I gave
him along the way.
I am ashamed of my own failings, and I publicly accepted responsibility for
them by pleading guilty in the Southern District of New York.
I am ashamed of my weakness and misplaced loyalty – of the things I did
for Mr. Trump in an effort to protect and promote him.
I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr. Trump’s illicit acts
rather than listening to my own conscience.
I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is.
He is a racist.
He is a conman.
He is a cheat.
He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking
with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National
Committee emails.   Read full statement here
