‘He lied a lot’ –  Trump on former lawyer Cohen’s testimony



President Donald Trump sought to discredit his former lawyer Michael Cohen Thursday after the ex – aide ’ s bombshell congressional testimony in which he essentially called Trump a criminal .“ He lied a lot , ” Trump told a press conference in Vietnam after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un .

Trump insisted that Cohen’ s testimony Wednesday had provided no evidence of collusion by the Trump campaign with Russia in the 2016 US election .

Cohen told the lawmakers he had no direct knowledge of collusion but that he had suspicions .

The president complained that the testimony took place during the summit with Kim .

“ I think having a fake hearing like that and having it in the middle of this very important summit is really a terrible thing, ” Trump said .

Trump again insisted the probe into Russian collusion is a “ hoax ” and a “ witch hunt . ”
