Michael Cohen testifies before Congress on Wednesday, but his opening statement was published by The New York Times late Tuesday.
In it, the disgraced former attorney to President Donald Trump painted a picture of a “racist,” a “conman” and a “cheat” sitting in the Oval Office. Then, in scathing detail, Cohen listed examples of each in action.
Here are some of the most stunning excerpts from the statement:
“Mr. Trump is a racist”
