President Donald Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen has been testifying all week in closed door sessions before the House Intelligence Committee.
Yesterday, Cohen appeared with several people bringing in several large rolling brief cases, more so than if I were leaving on a six month vacation, so you can only imagine the amount of documents he brought with him.
Cohen who has been convicted of perjury before the House Intelligence Committee for lying about the timeline of the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations, said in his testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee that Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s attorneys, edited his false statement. Sekulow has rejected that claim.
If Sekulow and any other of Trump’s attorneys did in fact help edit Cohen’s statement in order to have Cohen testify falsely, then Sekulow faces serious ethical and civil/criminal issues.
Attorney-client privilege is not applicable because there is an exception known as the crimes exception. That is why it was laughable when President Trump said attorney-client privilege is dead and his followers were arguing the same after the FBI raided Cohen’s office and home.
In a brief interview with the media: Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff said:
“Mr. Cohen cooperated fully with the Committee, answered every question we asked of him during both interview sessions, and provided important testimony and materials relevant to the core of our probe and that will allow us to advance our investigation substantially.”
