JUST IN: Michael Cohen Referred To DOJ For Criminal Prosecution

By Chris Powell

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-KY) have formally referred Michael Cohen to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for criminal prosecution, citing his previous lies to Congress. They specifically urged Attorney General Merrick Garland to hold Cohen accountable for his false statements from his February 2019 testimony.

In a letter, Republican members pointed out six specific falsehoods that Cohen presented to the House Oversight Committee and called on the Department of Justice to take suitable action. Last year, GOP members discovered that Cohen also provided false testimony in a 2019 deposition before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). Now, his testimony serves as a foundation for a politically driven prosecution of a former president and current candidate for that office, they argue.

Among the six specific lies cited in the letter are Cohen’s various fraudulent acts he had previously pleaded guilty to in federal court. He also falsely claimed that he hadn’t sought a position in President Donald Trump’s administration, despite contrary evidence from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. According to the Committee, Cohen misrepresented his involvement in creating a Twitter account, failed to report foreign government contracts, contradicted his own written statement, and asserted that his crimes were due to “blind loyalty” to Trump, which was disputed by federal prosecutors.
