REP. MARK MEADOWS SAYS THAT COHEN IS A LIAR AND TRUMP ISN’T.

Watching the Cohen testimony before Congress, it’s easy to see that the Republican strategy is to call Cohen and liar, and that means he is lying about how bad Trump is. But that argument is just plain dumb. Yes, Cohen has lied for decades, and he did so to help both himself and to help Donald Trump.

The reason this argument is foolish is because we all know Trump would never have hired Cohen in 2007 if he didn’t know Cohen would lie for Trump no matter what happened. So yes, Cohen is a liar and Trump hired him because he wanted Cohen to lie for him, too.
