Trey Gowdy just broke his silence on the whole Michael Cohen debacle with some very wise words.
Trey has always been well respected in Washington D.C. for consistently speaking truth to power. Who can forget when he ripped into Trump’s legal team and told them to quit acting guilty?
Point is Trey will call out both sides and for that reason, people usually give his wise words serious weight.
From Fox News: Former GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy reacted to the Michael Cohen hearing Wednesday, saying that it was “stunning to watch” Democrats call a “convicted perjurer” as their star witness.
Gowdy, now a partner at the upstate South Carolina firm Nelson Mullins, said Cohen was consistent on one noticeable thing.
He said Cohen — prior to and during his testimony — stated that he has no evidence to show collusion between President Trump and the Russians.
Gowdy also reacted to another statement Cohen made, regarding a claim he overheard a phone conversation between Trump and the president’s longtime friend, Roger Stone.
“Assume Michael Cohen is telling the truth,” Gowdy said. “What crime is listening to Roger Stone saying that WikiLeaks is going to do what they tweeted they were going to do and dump a bunch of documents?”
He also noted that when it comes to Cohen’s credibility, the now-disbarred New York attorney was subject to a rare public correction in January by the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
As Fox News reported at the time:
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office issued an extraordinary statement disputing a bombshell news report that claimed President Trump directed Michael Cohen to lie about the timing of discussions over a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.
“BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate,” Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller’s office, said.
The statement is remarkable in that Mueller’s team rarely issues statements in response to news stories. But BuzzFeed’s story sparked immense interest from Democrats, who called for renewed investigations and even suggested the allegations could be a basis for impeachment proceedings.
