Michael Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis is hitting back at Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Reform and Oversight Committee.


The two Republicans alleged that Michael Cohen lied during his hearing Wednesday, and should be prosecuted for it.

"While testifying under oath, Mr. Cohen made what appear to be numerous willfully and intentionally false statements of material fact contradicted by the record established by the Justice Department in United States v. Cohen," they said in a letter.

Davis responded by calling the men out on their political hackery.

"Mr. Cohen testified truthfully before the House Oversight Committee. He took full responsibility for his guilty pleas. He also backed up much of his testimony with documents," Davis told NBC News reporter Frank Thorp V.

"It may not be surprising that two pro-Trump Committee members known have a baseless criminal referral. In my opinion, it is a sad misuse of the criminal justice system with the aura of pure partisanship," Davis went on.
