Schiff: Once Cohen Transcripts Are Released, the Public Can Evaluate His Credibility Themselves

‘We’re going to need corroboration’

RUSH EXCERPT:

TAPPER: “Is it safe to say you can’t take Michael Cohen on his word on anything?”
SCHIFF: “I don’t think in terms of making the case to the public — and here, we’re not making the case to a jury, that we can rely on the testimony of Michael Cohen. We’re going to need corroboration. Looking at what Michael Cohen said in the open hearing and what his lawyer said afterwards, it was like what Donald Trump did when he said he had no knowledge of the payments to stormy Daniels. And Rudy Giuliani said, oh, yes, he did. Where is the truth there? We ask Michael Cohen about this extensively. Those transcripts will be made the public can evaluate his credibility themselves.”
