“If President Cummings, Mr. Cohen, the Department of Justice for criminal liability fails to refer, it will forever mar the reputation of the oversight committee, and calls into question the integrity of the entire house. Mr. Chairman, do what you said you would do, and hold Mr. Cohen is responsible for lying before the Committee,” Green said on Wednesday.
“Chairman Cummings promised the American people that, if Michael Cohen lied, he would hold him responsible, and I quote, ‘nail him to the cross’ – end of quote -,” Green added. “But 43 days later, nothing from the Chairman Cummings. … It seems that you are totally OK with witnesses to support there as long as your anti-Trump agenda.”
Green calls allow for a vote on the floor, “that this resolution”, see Cohen at the Ministry of justice.
“We will give the entire body the opportunity to do what you said you would do,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., reporters said.

The measure is to achieve unlikely to advance in the Democrat-controlled house, but represented to call the current effort by the Republicans Cohen testimony-in which he called trump a “racist”, a “conman” and a fraudulent” — in the question, since it continues to be to Democrats in Congress.
Cohen’s legal team, in the last week, wrote to say in a letter to house Oversight Committee Democrats that he is still sorting through documents in his personal files, which might be of interest to you in your investigations in President Trump, including E-Mails, voice recordings, images, and other documents on a hard drive.
“So far, Mr Cohen has asked for several documents, which we believe have significant value for the various congressional oversight and investigation committees,” Cohen’s lawyers Lanny Davis, Michael Monico, and Carly Chocron wrote in the letter,-the house to help Democrats keep Cohen out of prison.
“It is our hope that the authorities in the Southern district of New York, that the whole picture of the cooperation of Mr. Cohen, verified by your letter and the important new evidence he has provided or available to support the government, and the particular facts here involved, to grant Mr. Cohen an abridged period of time in accordance with the rules and procedures of the Southern District of New York,” she wrote.
The resolution comes to the Assembly the requests of the top Republicans on the Committee—including Ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.

MICHAEL COHEN PRIOR TO MOUNTING QUESTIONS ABOUT INCONSISTENCIES IN THE TESTIMONY
Meadows, Chairman of the house freedom Caucus, filed a criminal referral for Cohen in February, claims that he is against the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) of not price, foreign orders.
To report Cohen, who is in the prison for three years next month as part of his plea in connection to Mueller investigation and the criminal investigation into his personal business, led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, was asked about a number of statements in his testimony.
His claim that he “never asked, was he] would accept [a pardon from Mr Trump.”
Last month, though, Davis said that Cohen was “open to the ongoing ‘dangling’ of a potential pardon by Trump’s representative, in private and in the media.” Davis also said that Cohen “directed his lawyer to the possibilities of a pardon in a place with Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, as well as other lawyers advising President Trump.”
Davis, the defense of his client’s credibility, however, said that since the 2. Of July 2018, when he started, Cohen, he said that he “never accept a pardon from President trump would, even if it is offered.”

“This continues to be the case,” said Davis. “And his testimony at the oversight hearing was true—and to say, in accordance with his contribution to a joint defense agreement commitment, the truth.”
Meanwhile, Cohen has been criticized for his statements about potentially the White house to work in the Trump. At the hearing last week, Jordan Cohen is not accused of turning on the President, because he can land a job in the White house. Cohen denied this, and said he simply wanted “the personal lawyer of the President.”
“I got exactly what I wanted,” Cohen says.
Shortly thereafter, Davis acknowledged that Cohen was, in fact, at one time, in view of the possibility of working in the White house. “The fact is, early on, Michael Cohen speculated about a possible position in the White house,” Davis said in a statement. “But after he consulted with his family and friends, he decided that he would rather be home in New York City and as a” personal lawyer of the President.'”
MICHAEL COHEN ASKS THE HOUSE DEMOCRATS TO HELP GET HIM OUT OF PRISON
A further inconsistency is in connection with the Trump Tower project in Moscow. Cohen is going to prison, in part for lying to Congress during a closed-door hearing with the Senate Intelligence Committee in the year 2017, on the time axis of the communication with Russia about the project. Cohen first, the Committee said-communication was terminated before the first contest in the 2016 primary season, but later admitted that they would continue until June 2016, after Trump was the candidate of the Republican.
During the February hearing, Cohen told the Committee that Trump’s lawyers, including Jay Sekulow, reviewed and edited the statement he made to Congress in the year 2017 about the project, including the timeline of the discussions. But Sekulow said in a statement after the hearing that the “testimony of Michael Cohen, that the lawyers of the President, to change edit or modify his statement to the Congress that the duration of the Trump Tower in Moscow negotiations is completely wrong.”
