Posted on 5/10/2024 by with 0 comments

Republicans are demanding the Department of Justice (DOJ) open up a criminal probe into former Trump attorney Michael Cohen for allegedly lying to Congress.

On Wednesday, the GOP chairmen of the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland calling on federal law enforcement to examine Cohen’s 2019 testimony to Congress as evidence of perjury.

Lawmakers first made the criminal referral on Feb. 28, 2019.

“Cohen’s testimony is now the basis for a politically motivated prosecution of a former president and current declared candidate for that office,” wrote James Comer, R-Ky., and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, in the joint letter. “In light of the reliance on the testimony from this repeated liar, we reiterate our concerns and ask what the Justice Department has done to hold Cohen accountable for his false statements to Congress.”

Cohen is scheduled to testify against President Donald Trump in the New York City DA’s case against the former darling on the Big Apple.
