Congressman Jerry Nadler has pointed to Michael Cohen’s guilty plea last week as demonstrating that Russia had – and may still have – “leverage” over Donald Trump during his presidential campaign.
Speaking on NBC’s Meet the Press, the Democrat from New York, who is expected to become the head of the House Judiciary Committee in January, pointed out that the president has lied and continues to lie to the American people. However, Nadler argued that Trump’s ability to be dishonest without repercussions is reaching a conclusion.
“We have a president who lies incessantly to the American people about big matters and small matters. He surrounds himself with people who lie incessantly to the American people,” Nadler said. “The time that he can get away with lying to the American people all the time and evading accountability is coming to end,” he warned.
