On Wednesday, President Donald Trump former fixer and personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, appeared before Congress for testimony over crimes committed by the president.
During his testimony, Cohen made bombshell allegations about Trump, and Fox’s News Chris Wallace called out Republicans for failing to refute any of them.
Cohen detailed racist situations and behaviors from Trump, and also showed a signed check from the Trump Organization that was used in the hush money scandal for adult film star Stormy Daniels.
“They haven’t refuted his basic allegations against the president. And you say they’re doing the best they can. It may be that they don’t have any evidence to refute,” Wallace said. “To some degree, they can’t sit there and refute the checks to the degree that Cohen has said things, and it’s just basically his word. All they have is the president has denied that.”
He added, “They haven’t done anything to really say, basic allegations about the president, they’ve done a lot to shake his credibility. In terms of the allegations, they haven’t defended it. Is there anything out there that the White House could have given them to defend against the claims that Michael Cohen is making?”

"While sharing information and ideas with colleagues helps build community, disrupting the workday to have a raging debate over politics or the latest news story does not," the updated guidelines stated.
"Our primary responsibility is to do the work we?ve each been hired to do, not to spend working time on debates about non-work topics."
