Michael Cohen was the former private attorney to Donald J. Trump, The President of the United States. Michael Cohen is well known for his clients that he works with, such as the President, Sean Hannity, and Elliott Broidy.

Michael Cohen has a past of felonies he is convicted of. He has a history of lying to Congress about campaign finance violations twice. Because of his past felonies he has committed (also confessed in doing those crimes), Cohen will be serving time in prison for 3 years.

Due to him doing time in prison, he wanted to come out clean and tell Congress about the wrongs done by the President both during the election and while in office. In addition, he wanted to express to the citizens of America the ways that they have been betrayed.

Republicans and Democrats were in a room together, and the Chairman, Elijah Cummings, cast a vote to see if they wanted to hear to Cohen’s testimony.

Many Republicans strongly disagreed in hearing his testimony, due to his past of lying to Congress about his felonies, and saw no reason why they should listen to him now about what he has to say about the President of the United States. On the other hand, Democrats wanted to hear what he had to say.

During the testimony, Michael Cohen gave his confession about things such as the Russia project and the hush money with the “affair” Donald Trump had with an adult film actress.

After he finished, he underwent an intense cross-examination and questioning by the Republicans and Democrats in Congress.

Who would you agree with? Would you think it was beneficial to hear what Cohen had to say, or do you think it was a mistake to have him testify based off of his past crimes?
