“Sure, you knew that you breaking the law?” Como asked.

“Sir, I’m not a [certified public accountant], I pleaded guilty,” he replied. “I pleaded guilty, and I’m going to do, the time I caused enormous pain to my family.”

“His remorse is non-existent, he is just a member of Congress, the say discussed, I knew really nothing wrong with the wrong bank things, said I’m guilty and I would go to jail for this,'” Jordan.

“Mr. Jordan, this is not what I said and you don’t know, that’s what I said,” Cohen shot back. “What I said was, I pleaded guilty and I take responsibility for my actions.”

After a breath, he went a step further: “shame on you, Mr. Jordan, that’s what I said, shame on you, that is what I said.”

“What I have said is that I took on the responsibility, and I take responsibility. What I did, the Lord declares that his information is incorrect, I have responsibility for my mistakes, I’m remorseful and I’m going to jail, I want to get away from my wife and my family for years.”

It was the second meeting between Cohen and Jordan in the hearing. Earlier, Jordan lights up in Cohen after the former lawyer called Trump a “racist” and a “conman”.

“How long have you been working in the White house?” Jordan asked.

“I’ve never answered worked in the White house,” Cohen.

“That’s the point, isn’t it? They wanted to work in the White house, but you don’t get brought to the dance,” said Jordan.

Cohen replied: “no, sir.”
