Lying About Lying? Michael Cohen Appears to Confess to Prior False Statements Under Oath

C-Span/YouTube Screenshot

Below is my column on on the new allegations of perjury by Michael Cohen after his testimony in the New York fraud trial of his former client Donald Trump. The alleged perjury occurred in testimony before Congress, but it is part of patterns going back decades. For his critics, Cohen has made lying a virtual art form — supported by an ever-changing array of powerful benefactors.

Here is the column:

If lying were an art form, former Trump fixer Michael Cohen would be its Rembrandt.

Throughout his career, the disbarred lawyer has found powerful clients who valued his reputation for supporting any side that offered the biggest payback.

Now he is accused of yet another lie under oath and the question is whether his current benefactors will again protect him from a criminal charge.

For years, Cohen was the heavy for Donald Trump who threatened everyone from journalists to students with ruin for threatening the former president.

Faced with disbarment and criminal charges, he then became an equally vicious critic of Trump; a human cudgel for Democrats. The most remarkable thing about his checkered career is the one constant: a long, uninterrupted line of lies upon lies. Indeed, he is now accused of lying about prior lies.

I have been a critic of Cohen for years, going back to work as a legal thug for Trump. That criticism continued after Cohen sought to raise money from Democrats as a Trump killer as opposed to a Trump enabler. Those of us familiar with his history warned about the notion that he was now a “liberated former liar.”

As expected, the sides changed but the lies continued.

He would appear as the new star Democratic witness before House Oversight Committee chairman, Elijah Cummings, and was promptly accused of lying under oath again. Cummings refused to take any action against Cohen. He had again found a powerful ally who valued his moral flexibility.

Even after being stripped of his bar license and sentenced to three years in prison, Cohen continued the pattern. In 2019, Cohen failed to appear to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee, citing the inability to travel due to a medical surgery. However, he was seen partying before the hearing date with five friends with no apparent problems.

Even in jail, Cohen was accused of lying to a court in violation of an order for early release due to medical problems. He was ordered back into custody after being spotted at a high-end restaurant.

Nevertheless, Cohen has few illusions about his sudden alliance with media outlets and Democratic figures. He does not have to be truthful; he has to be useful.

That celebrated role continued this year when Cohen was called to testify in the New York fraud case brought by Attorney General Letitia James. It mattered little to James that Cohen is a serial liar. Yet, even her office may have been surprised with the ease with which Cohen now admits to false statements.

During his recent testimony, Cohen was confronted by statements about Trump inflating the value of his properties that directly contradicted his sworn testimony before Congress. Most witnesses would be petrified by the prospect of admitting lying under oath. Most would refuse to testify under the Fifth Amendment. Not Cohen. He simply seemed to shrug it off and admitted that he previously lied under oath in 2019 before Congress.

In testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on February 28, 2019, Cohen was asked about the same alleged violation and responded: “I’m sorry. Did he ask me to inflate the numbers? Not that I recall, no.”

When read that answer in New York by defense counsel, Cohen admitted that he was not being “honest” with Congress.  Trump attorney Alina Habba then asked him: “So you lied under oath in February of 2019? Is that your testimony?” Cohen replied “yes.”

For Cohen, the admission of a lie is hardly a significant moment. He pleaded guilty to felonies including false statements to banks in 2018. After professing his profound guilt and remorse, he was sentenced to three years. He then later said that he really did not mean it in denying aspects of the plea.

After that plea and then denying the sworn plea, Cohen was called to give testimony before the House Intelligence Committee. He now says that he proceeded to lie again.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik have sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland for an investigation into the admitted false testimony.

This would seem an embarrassingly easy case for a prosecutor. A serial liar just admitted under oath that he lied previously under oath.  There is a five-year statute of limitations on lying to Congress.

Moreover, this is the attorney general who aggressively pursued Trump officials and associates for contempt and other violations linked to congressional investigations. It is also the same department that prosecuted figures like Gen. Michael Flynn for false statements made to FBI agents.

For Cohen, the key to his career has been to lie to the right people at the right time. It is now up to Garland whether he will join a long line of powerful allies covering for Cohen.

Cohen may be able to again evade real punishment. When he was still thumping people for Trump, Cohen told the reporter that he should “tread very f—ing lightly because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f—ing disgusting. Do you understand me?”

When it comes to the legal system, Cohen is ironically true to his word. What he has done to the legal system for decades is truly disgusting. The New York bar took no action for years until Cohen confessed to crimes to secure a plea deal.

Past incidents of alleged perjury before Congress were ignored because prosecution would have been inconvenient. Now he has nonchalantly acknowledged lying under oath in 2019 after pleading guilty to criminal falsehoods.

The problem is not Cohen. He continues to act to his nature. The problem is a political and legal system that enables him as a serial liar. It is a system that continues to call Cohen to the stand and ask him to swear to God to offer the “truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” without a signature joke drum roll before his punchline.

The fact that Cohen can say “I do” without breaking up in laughter reflects a true artist at work.

  1. “We unequivocably don’t consider deliberate false statements made under oath to be lies when they align with our official government policies”–Chris Wray

  2. Professor Turley Writes:

    “For years, Cohen was the heavy for Donald Trump who threatened everyone–

    “The most remarkable thing about his checkered career is the one constant: a long, uninterrupted line of lies–

    With these two passages, Turley tells us everything we need to know about Michael Cohen.. AND Donald Trump!

    In other words: For years Trump employed a liar of a lawyer who ‘threatened everyone’ on Trump’s behalf.

    It is extraordinary that Turley could write these passages while not comprehending how bad they look for Trump.

    Or perhaps Turley knows, indeed, how badly Michael Cohen reflects on Trump.

    And maybe Turley wants to see if his conservative followers possess the ‘critical thinking’ skills to put two and two together.

    1. You can not slime Trump with cohen without sliming yourself
      If trump was wrong to use him do are you
      Though Trump used him as a heavy and bailed on him before he flipped when it was clear he was a crook
      You started using him after it was evident he was more than a heavy but also a crook and a liar

      Nearl all of what cohen has been convicted of is fraud on his own behalf outside of his dealings with trump

      While his perjury is specific to the efforts of the left to get trump

      Trump used a heavy

      You are using a liar

      Trump dropped him when he realized he was a liar

      You did not find him useful until it was clear he would lie for you

      Cohen speaks more about you than trump

  3. Trump Lawyers Want To Scrub Violence From Upcoming Trial

    The federal election interference case against former President Donald Trump is coming into sharper focus, as prosecutors assert he is responsible for the violence at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and offer new clues about how they intend to prove it.

    For the first time, the Justice Department team said they are going to use video evidence to show Trump encouraged the crowd at the rally to go to the Capitol, starting 15 minutes into his speech. They said they will provide testimony, photos and geolocation evidence — essentially, cell phone pings — to show how specific Trump supporters listened to him, then went on to strong-arm police and breach the Capitol.

    Lawyers for Trump are asking the judge to remove mentions of what happened that day from the four-count felony indictment because they could “inflame” or prejudice the jury.

    According to rightwing media (and Johnathan Turley), January 6th was a ‘mostly peaceful’ demonstration that got a little spirited. Yet Trump’s defense is very concerned that an accounting of the violence could ‘inflame’ the jury.

    Does this mean January 6th really ‘was’ the ugly assault on police we all know it was? Trump’s lawyers fear it reality could certainly sink their client.

      1. Regarding Above:

        Blog Stooge Falsely Claims Rowdy Demonstrators Were ‘Democrats’

        At least six police officers were wounded in pro-Palestinian demonstrations outside the national headquarters of the Democratic Party in a melee that forced a lockdown of nearby offices of the US Congress in Washington on Wednesday.

        The demonstrations were led by the far-left anti-Zionist groups IfNotNow and Jewish Voice for Peace.

        Scores of Democratic representatives and candidates, including House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, were inside the building for a campaign reception when it was interrupted by chanting outside. Protesters said they wanted to block entrances and exits to force politicians to encounter their candlelight vigil and their calls for an end to the fighting. Many of them wore black shirts saying “Cease Fire Now.”

        Here we have it from The Times of Israel: The protesters were far-left radicals targeting Democratic congressmen at DNC headquarters.

        Yet the Blog Stooge stupidly presumes the ‘protesters’ were Democrats. The Stooge was probably misinformed by rightwing media.

        1. Are you saying those on the left never turn on their own ?

          Yes these were democrats
          Violently protesting democrats

          They certainly did not vote for trump

          It is likely most of those arrested
          Also worked on the campaigns of democrats

    1. This is a fairly normal move and should be granted

      As a Matt of law and logic you can not argue from the future to the past

      You have to prove trumps remarks incited violence before you can use that violence as evidence

      And you can not

      Nothing trump said was nearly as egregious as democrats say all the time

      Nothing is close to meeting the Brandenburg standard

      You can move forward and later lose on appeal

      As to j6

      If you introduce the violence you open the door to proving it was mostly peaceful

      Outside of spin it was

      You have convicted over a thousand people but only a handful of hundreds of thousands present of violence
      And nearly all of those of inconsequential violence like putting a hand on a cp officers hand

      The fact is that all you have done with j6 is demonstrate how corrupt your own spin is

      The most perfect reflection of j6 is the false color stage photo of the “gallows” contrasted with a normal scal and color picture with the clear sign that the media studiously avoided saying “this is art”

      Little could make clear how evil your intentions more than that

      Though there are many many other examples

      It is called lying and the left does it well

  4. Trump’s Interview With Univision Offers Shocking Preview Of Second Term

    Earlier this week, Donald Trump gave an interview to Enrique Acevedo of the the Spanish language television network Univision. Here was the startling section of that interview.

    EA: You say they’ve weaponized the Justice Department, they weaponized the FBI. Would you do the same if you’re reelected?

    DT: Yeah. If they do this and they’ve already done it, but if they want to follow through on this, yeah, it could certainly happen in reverse. It could certainly happen in reverse. What they’ve done is they’ve released the genie out of the box. You understand that They’ve done something that nobody thought would happen.

    They’ve done indictments in order to win an election. They call it weaponization, and the people aren’t going to stand for it. But yeah, they have done something that allows the next party. I mean, if somebody if I happen to be president and I see somebody who’s doing well and beating me very badly, I say go down and indict them.

    Here Trump is completely honest about his intentions. A second administration will essentially be a state of emergency where Trump rules as an authoritarian to purge America of any opposition.

    You see, the reasoning is simple: ‘Trump has been a victim and he now has a perfect right to even the score’.

    1. “A second administration will essentially be a state of emergency where Trump rules as an authoritarian to purge America of any opposition.” The new hoax. Even more lurid and ridiculous than all the others.

    2. No, he is giving his opinion of how he thinks the Democrats have weaponized the Justice Department and that would make it available to the next party in power.

  5. Michael Cohen is truly a man without a country. Though the use him to their advantage the left hates him as much as the right. The law deals harshly with those who commit multiple offenses. When the time comes neither those on the left or the right will come to comfort him. The price he will have to pay will be on the cold grey floors behind the black iron bars. In the end those who defend him on this blog will say “who” when asked to recall his name.


    – Richard A. Rowland


    Lying? America is living a lie – a foreign lie of “fundamental transformation.” American freedom was never legally or legislatively abrogated. American freedom was ended after a mere 71 years by political power grown out of the barrel of a gun by “Crazy Abe” Lincoln and his zealous communist successors who had been expelled from Europe, ending up in New York, Illinois et al. The lunatics were never allowed to vote by the American Founders and Framers. Never was America intended to be a one man, one vote democracy, which constitutes the “dictatorship of the proletariat,” or more accurately the “dictatorship of the [hired help].” America is a restricted-vote republic, restricted by States, by fundamental law. Never were “such persons, as are in so mean a situation, that they are esteemed to have no will of their own” and “persons of indigent fortunes, or such as are under the immediate dominion of others” intended to vote. And never were heterogeneous foreigners intended to be admitted to become citizens or otherwise allowed to vote. Abraham Lincoln “fundamentally transformed” the United States of America into communism when his successors improperly ratified and forcibly imposed the “RECONSTRUCTION Amendments” which “RECONSTRUCTED a social world” for Karl Marx, Lincoln’s “fellow traveler.”


    – Preamble to the Constitution

    “the people are nothing but a great beast…

    I have learned to hold popular opinion of no value.”

    – Alexander Hamilton

    “The true reason (says Blackstone) of requiring any qualification, with regard to property in voters, is to exclude such persons, as are in so mean a situation, that they are esteemed to have no will of their own.”

    “If it were probable that every man would give his vote freely, and without influence of any kind, then, upon the true theory and genuine principles of liberty, every member of the community, however poor, should have a vote… But since that can hardly be expected, in persons of indigent fortunes, or such as are under the immediate dominion of others, all popular states have been obliged to establish certain qualifications, whereby, some who are suspected to have no will of their own, are excluded from voting; in order to set other individuals, whose wills may be supposed independent, more thoroughly upon a level with each other.”

    – Alexander Hamilton, The Farmer Refuted, 1775

    Article 1, Section 2

    The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second Year by the People of the several States, and the Electors in each State shall have the Qualifications requisite for Electors of the most numerous Branch of the State Legislature.

    Naturalization Acts of 1790, 1795, 1798 and 1802

    United States Congress, “An act to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization,” March 26, 1790

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America, in Congress assembled, That any Alien being a free white person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof…

    “They consider…that it fell to the lot of Abraham Lincoln…to lead his country through…the reconstruction of a social world.”

    – Karl Marx Letter to Abraham Lincoln, 1865

  7. Jonathan: Why are you and the MAGA Republicans in the House going after Michael Cohen? I think I know why. It’s all part of DJT campaign to discredit Cohen as a witness–in the Letitia James trial and when Cohen testifies in NY DA Alvin Bragg’s criminal case against DJT.

    DJT’s attacks on witnesses who can hurt him are legend. When Cohen turned on him DJT filed a $500,000 lawsuit against Cohen. How did that turn out? In response Cohen asked to depose DJT who made up all sorts of spurious reasons he didn’t want to be deposed. His attorneys argued a deposition would cause undue “humiliation and embarrassment”for their client. Then they argued their client would have to assert his 5th Amendment privilege. Finally, the judge in the case became fed up and ordered DJT to sit down for a deposition. And what did DJT do? He dismissed his case! The “tough” guy was afraid to testify. But this case illustrates how DJT tries to intimidate and harass his enemies by filing lawsuits without any merit.

    Now comes the letter from MAGA House Republicans Elise Stefanik and Michael Turner to AG Garland. What is this about? It’s all part of DJT’s relentless campaign to discredit Cohen. Stefanik and Turner want Garland to prosecute Cohen for perjury over his testimony to Congress and in the Letitia James trial. It’s hard to tell which. There are a number of reasons why the letter will go nowhere. The statute of limitations has probably expired on Cohen’s testimony to Congress. Besides, he already pled guilty and served prison time for that perjury. And the DOJ rarely prosecutes someone from walking back his admissions after a guilty plea. Convicted felons often deny their crimes, even after they plead guilty.

    The only Q is how Judge Engoron will treat Cohen’s testimony? If, as you claim, Cohen is a “serial liar” his testimony could be discounted. On the other hand, Cohen was not, as DJT claims, James’s “star witness”. His testimony was cumulative. Engoron has already found DJT liable for systemic fraud. And Letitia James had already put on mountains of evidence and other witnesses against DJT BEFORE Cohen testified. Engoron doesn’t really need Cohen’s testimony to find against DJT. That’s the reality you don’t want to address.

    The person who should really be worried about perjury is DJT. When he testified he was asked about his posts attacking Judge Engoron’s chief clerk. DJT said they were directed at Cohen not the clerk. Engoron didn’t buy it. He found DJT’s testimony not “credible”, i.e., DJT lied on the witness stand.

    Your attacks on Cohen, those of DJT and his supporters in Congress, are part of a campaign to intimidate and threaten Cohen who will be he will be a “star witness” in NY AG Alvin Bragg’s criminal trial of DJT. Ultimately, your campaign will fail!

    1. Dennis McIntyre, surely you joke. Michael Cohen has already discredited himself on many an occasion and you discredit yourself by trying to defend him. Is there any level that you will not descend to reinforce your physiological need to get Trump. I use the word physiological quite accurately to describe your condition.

      1. TIT, why do give that man the time of day? I saw his name and skipped over it. Saw your posting and took the time to glance over it. Your posts are much better when you stay in the real world. He probably resides in an assisted living facility.

      2. The problem is not with cohen

        Everyone right and left knows who cohen is

        Democrats are are correct in pointing out that cohen’s use by Trump reflects badly on trump

        But ignore that after being convicted of perjury

        They are the ones now stuck to cohen like a tar baby

    2. Dennis

      It is unethical for a lawyer to knowingly put on a witness that is going to lie

      Cohen already testified under oath repeatedly on the core claim in this trial

      James is offering a witness who is convicted of perjury
      Whose testimony is with perjury or makes prior testimony perjury

      Cohen can not be rehabilitated

      His testimony must be struck
      And it is all James has

      You can try to argue that for once in his life cohen is telling the truth

      Despite the complete absence of any evidence and the contradiction with his own prior testimony

      Or you can just do the right thing and convict cohen of perjury in NY and disbarr James for knowingly presenting false testimony

  8. “What I’m about to say is a lie!” or said another way as postulated by Epimenides “I am lying”. So, Cohen wasn’t lying when indeed he did lie about lying, or he was telling truth about lying, regardless it’s the gullibility or those that believed he was telling the truth but was lying. This pretzel logic is indicative of the lefts philosophy of accepting anything that’s postulated which reflects negatively against President Trump. There so many instances of this tactic that’s been used by the Democrat’s against in particular President Trump and in general the Right. Accusations are plentiful, too many to name individually. The left must have caught a new form of tinnitus allowing only leftist drivel through.


          1. NY state is an invaded, antithetical, anti-American, foreign, criminal, parasitic communist hot bed awaiting prosecution, correction and disposition.

            Please name the “lenders” who were harmed financially and are complainants.

  9. Did the Regime hire the marketing strategist for Bud Light to take this lawfare approach against Trump to win the 2024 presidency? Now, the only case that had the real potential for damage to Trump was just torpedoed by the report Biden will “face criticism,” but will not be charged in his classified documents investigation.

    Well done to the Regime! After nearly 8 years of “Get Trump” to protect their secret cabal, all they’ve done is expose their entire tyrannical operation to everyone and solidified Trump’s nomination to become President, as support grows to take out the Regime.


        1. @Olly – As long as there’s unlimited mail in ballots, no photo ID and early voting, not a voting DAY I think it’s a done deal. The current vote polling is for people to feel fuzzy and gooey. I don’t think JC himself would have a good chance at winning under the current system. We’re third world now, God knows what’s next, because the Calvary isn’t coming.

          1. Margot, that’s exactly why I’m concerned.

            We’re third world now, God knows what’s next, because the [Cavalry] isn’t coming.

            I just watched this interview from Tucker Carlson with Spain’s opposition leader to their current tyrannical regime, Santiago Abascal. It is well worth watching for anyone wanting a glimpse into our own future. It’s not good.


            1. That’s our future if Trump is reelected.

              Carlson said he hates Jews. Nice that you think he’s worth listening to.

              1. That’s our future if Trump is reelected.

                You are this blog’s poster child for the Regime’s brainwashed and demoralized unuseful idiots.

            2. @Olly – I just viewed the vid it is concerning. I hope the Jewish community wakes up as a result of the recent attacks against them. They have in the past been supportive to the left and the woke in the universities with money and votes. I wonder how often they participated in shout downs of conservative speakers at the colleges. I’d like to think Americans would like to return to being American and prove it at election time?

                – Pope Francis

                Listen, God, to my prayer do not hide from my pleading; hear me and give answer.
                I rock with grief; I groan at the uproar of the enemy, the clamor of the wicked.
                They heap trouble upon me, savagely accuse me.
                My heart pounds within me; death’s terrors fall upon me.
                Fear and trembling overwhelm me; shuddering sweeps over me.

                I say, “If only I had wings like a dove that I might fly away and find rest.
                Far away I would flee; I would stay in the desert.
                I would soon find a shelter from the raging wind and storm.”
                Lord, check and confuse their tongues.
                For I see violence and strife in the city making rounds on its walls day and night.
                Within are mischief and trouble; treachery is in its midst; oppression and fraud never leave its streets.

                For it is not an enemy that reviled me—that I could bear—
                Not a foe who viewed me with contempt, from that I could hide.
                But it was you, my other self, my comrade and friend,
                You, whose company I enjoyed, at whose side I walked in the house of God.

                But I will call upon God, and the LORD will save me.
                At dusk, dawn, and noon I will grieve and complain,
                and my prayer will be heard.
                He will redeem my soul in peace from those who war against me,
                though there are many who oppose me.

                God, who sits enthroned forever, will hear me and afflict them.
                For they will not mend their ways; they have no fear of God.
                He stretched out his hand at his friends and broke his covenant.
                Softer than butter is his speech, but war is in his heart.
                Smoother than oil are his words, but they are unsheathed swords.

                Cast your care upon the LORD, who will give you support.
                He will never allow the righteous to stumble.
                But you, God, will bring them down to the pit of destruction.
                These bloodthirsty liars will not live half their days, but I put my trust in you.

    1. Would you flesh out that “Regime?”

      Is the “Regime” somehow dissimilar to the Global, Communist (liberal, progressive, socialist, democrat, RINO, AINO), Deep Deep State “Swamp,” or is the “Regime” a novel reference?

        1. OK. Thank you.

          Being “inclusive,” he said tongue-in-cheek, I’ll go with the Global, Communist (liberal, progressive, socialist, democrat, RINO, AINO), Deep Deep State “Swamp” Regime.

          That should cover it.

          I believe, while nomenclature will inevitably change, we’re all referring to a national cancer; an illicit and unconstitutional level of authority, control, power, command and dominion, in the what-was-intended-to-be rational, constitutionally-restricted-vote, American republic.

            In a word: DUCK

            Regime works just as well.

  10. Our supposedly educated responders never heard of the phrase et tu brute. They won’t understand it and they won’t look it up. If they did they would understand the meaning of betrayal. They just encircle Trump and plunge the knives deeper. They wail in furry not understanding why Trump just won’t die as they hide their bloody hands beneath their white tunics. Try as they might the color of red still shows through. Every one of Caesars slayers did it because they believed it would increase their wealth. So too go the Cohens of our day including the paid leftist on this blog.

    1. As Professor Turley opined, this scumbag isn’t called by democrats attacking President Trump to be truthful, he’s called to be useful.

  11. “Now he is accused of yet another lie under oath and the question is whether his current benefactors will again protect him from a criminal charge.”
    ̷J̷o̷e̷ ̷B̷i̷d̷e̷n̷ Michael Cohen in an inveterate liar – what else is new? Takes some folks longer to realize things than others. The former we call Dim voters. The rest of us don’t need any banning. We just ignore the mouth spew.

  12. There are a lot of people who are just not very bright. They don’t understand that Banks do not lend money to very successful people based on their assets but rather on their track record of paying back the money that they lent them. Cohen lying about Trumps assets had nothing to do with whether or not Trump got a loan. If the prosecution was smart they would ask the judge to treat Cohan as a hostile witness. Stupid is as stupid does.

    1. True – Banks look at your ‘Debt-Service’ track records. In regards to the Commercial Mortgage Banking, since the Dot.Com Bust the Commercial Property Market has received 3 to 4 Silent-Bailouts and We’re in one now and heading for another soon. The Fed Reserve, FDIC, SEC, Treasury – Mum’s the Word.
      Trump is no different or special case. The way the Commercial Property Market has been levered-up is by over-valuation. Brokers, Asset Managers and Bankers are to blame. It’s a kind of Pump-n-Dump wait for a Governmental Bailout cycle, To suck money into their pockets (Keep the $pice flowing).
