The White House slammed Michael Cohen ahead of his first day of hearings on Capitol Hill.
In a statement released Tuesday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called Cohen a “disgraced felon,” who is going to prison for lying to Congress and making other false statements. She also said we can expect more of the same from him this week as he go before Congress.
Sanders added, it’s “laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word.”
The press secretary’s comments came as Cohen privately testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee Tuesday. He is also slated to appear before two House panels later this week.
