Elijah Cummings Says Americans Will Judge Cohen Testimony Credibility

(Bloomberg) -- “The American people can judge his credibility for themselves," Elijah Cummings, House Oversight and Reform Cmte chair, says of Michael Cohen as the panel opens its hearing with President Trump’s former personal attorney.

  • “Every one of us in this room has a duty to serve as an independent check of the executive branch," Cummings says after Republican panel members attempt to delay hearing
  • “Mr. Cohen’s testimony raises grave questions about the legality of Donald Trump’s conduct and the truthfulness of his statements while he was President," Cummings says in prepared remarks
