On Wednesday, in what will go down in history as one of the most mindblowing moments in Donald Trump’s so-called “presidency,” Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney and “fixer,” testified on Capitol Hill and stated in no uncertain terms that his former boss is “a liar and criminal who manipulated his financial statements and frequently made racist remarks.”
In case you missed it, you can watch Cohen’s full testimony below:
It appears that Cohen’s testimony may just be the tip of the iceberg, as he has given investigators a multitude of leads to explore.
To add to all of this, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), head of the House Financial Committee, just announced on live television that she has new information that Trump used his family’s foundation in order to avoid paying taxes.
Speaking today with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes of All In, Waters said:
‘This president has lied about his tax returns.
‘He said they were being audited and because of that he could not share them, but he’s never intended to share his tax returns, because he knows we’re going to find out a lot about him when he does, and the lies he’s been telling.’
Now, obviously the above is something we’ve heard bits and pieces of before, but then Waters dropped a serious bombshell:
‘What I really want to know is whether or not he performed services that he got paid for, he did not want to pay taxes on them and told people to put the money in the foundation. I believe there’s a lot of evidence on that.
‘I’ve even got calls for people close to this information, sharing it with me and it may be information I give to the Ways and Means Committee.
‘Soon we’ll see how to work it, but there’s a lot of information about how it was used or misused.’
