Democrats have orchestrated a hearing to give a platform to convicted felon Michael Cohen to attack President Trump, and now they’re raising money off the spectacle.
“Choen’s Testimony Reinforces Trump’s Culture of Corruption,” a midday email from the Democratic National Committee reads.
“We can’t give Republicans four more years in the White House,” it continues.
“With only 35 hours before tomorrow’s deadline will you donate to the one-term president fund to help defeat Trump and the GOP in 2020?”
The email goes on to offer handy buttons the supporter can use to give cash to the Dems.
Republican Congressman Jim Jordan attacked the hearing process, saying it was being pushed by Clinton ally Lanny Davis, who is counsel to Cohen.
“Mr. Chairman here we go. Here we go. Your big hearing, Your first announced witness: Michael Cohen. I want everyone in this room to think about this. The first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress,” Jordan said in an opening statement, PJ Media reports.
“Mr. Chairman, your chairmanship will always be identified with this hearing. And we all need to understand what this is. This is the Michael Cohen hearing presented by Lanny Davis. That’s right,” Jordan said.
“Lanny Davis choreographed the whole darn thing. The Clinton’s best friend, loyalist, operative, Lanny Davis put this all together. You know how we know? He told our staff.”
“This might be the first time someone convicted of lying to Congress has appeared again so quickly in front of Congress,” he continued.
“Certainly, it’s the first time a convicted perjurer has been brought back to be a star witness in a hearing. And there is a reason this is the first because no other committee would do it.”
