In order for Michael Cohen to be seen as a credible and reliable source on Donald Trump's business dealings, political activities and character - both in and out of the White House - the President's former fixer must be viewed as a changed man, someone who lied, yes, but has now seen the light and spent his House hearing on Tuesday telling the truth and nothing but the truth about his former boss.

"There are other instances in which Mr. Cohen's statements to the Committee were immediately contradicted by witnesses with firsthand knowledge of the subject matter", the Republicans added.

During bombshell testimony Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Cohen told lawmakers that Trump knew in advance that the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks would release emails damaging to his opponent in the 2016 presidential campaign, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"In Mr. Cohen's plea agreement with the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, prosecutors specifically referred to Mr. Cohen's crimes for making state statements to financial institutions as "bank fraud", Meadows and Jordan continued".

During the testimony, Cohen said he had spoken to Novartis over the telephone six times and that the firm had specifically hired him so that it could have access to the Trump administration, according to live feeds published by media outlets.

In fact, that’s the best possible use of credit — engaging it to do something that can help you make money. No Credit The good news about having no credit history is there’s nothing negative about you out there.

Last year, Cohen was sentenced to three years in a federal prison for lying to Congress in 2017.

Jim Jordan, Ohio, and Mark Meadows, North Carolina, sent the letter to Attorney General William P. Barr.

Jordan and Meadows went on to detail the alleged false statements made by Cohen on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Cohen asserted that some of Trump's lawyers, including Jay Sekulow, had edited his planned comments before his previous testimony - including references to the timeline of Trump's efforts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

The House Intelligence Committee is expected to probe that admission further on Thursday. Republican panel member Rep. Chris Stewart (Utah) said Cohen simply appeared "interesting".
