‘You wanted to work in the White House, but you didn’t get brought to the dance…’
(FoxNews.com) House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan blasted Michael Cohen during the former Trump lawyer’s explosive public hearing Wednesday, claiming Cohen turned on the president because he didn’t land a job at the White House.
The Ohio Republican’s questioning followed a blistering opening statement against Democrats, who have majority control, for calling the dishonest felon as their first-ever committee witness:
“You said all these bad things about the president in the last 30 minutes, yet you worked for him for 10 years. If it’s that bad, I can see you working for him for 10 days, 10 weeks, maybe 10 months. But you worked for him for 10 years,” Jordan said to Cohen Wednesday.
Jordan, R-Ohio, lit into Cohen after the star witness delivered an opening statement calling the president a “racist” and a “conman” and accusing Trump of numerous misdeeds before and after he became president.
But Jordan suggested Cohen, who will soon report for a three-year prison sentence, only parted with Trump after he was excluded from the White House.
“How long did you work in the White House?” Jordan asked.
“I never worked in the White House,” Cohen replied.
“That’s the point, isn’t it? You wanted to work in the White House, but you didn’t get brought to the dance,” Jordan said.
Cohen responded: “No sir.”…Original Source…
