Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows refer Michael Cohen to DOJ for alleged perjury
House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., wrote a letter Thursday to the Attorney General William Barr, citing evidence that Cohen “committed perjury” during his hearing before the committee on Wednesday.
“While testifying under oath, Mr. Cohen made what appear to be numerous wil-ffully and intentionally false statements of material fact contradicted by the record established by the
Justice Department in United States v. Cohen, 18-cr-602 (S.D.N.Y) (WHP). Mr. Cohen’s
testimony before the Committee at times was in direct contradiction to assertions contained in pleadings authored by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY). 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.” they wrote.
