Elijah Cummings Believes Michael Cohen

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) said he believes former Trump attorney Michael Cohen “told the truth.”

“I’ve been practicing law — first of all, as I said in there, I practiced law for many years. And one of the things that I did, I represented a lot of lawyers who got in trouble. And I’m used to watching witnesses,” Cummings said. “And I think he’s remorseful. And a lot of people said, oh, the reason why he’s coming in is because he just wants to get his sentence reduced. I think that’s not likely.

“I believe him,” Cummings concluded.
