‘Not Telling The Truth’: Jake Tapper Stunned That Michael Cohen Claimed Under Oath He Didn’t Want Trump Admin Gig

CNN host Jake Tapper expressed shock that former President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen denied in Thursday’s testimony that he ever wanted to work in the White House.

Previous witness testimony from Keith Davidson, who represents former porn actress Stormy Daniels, indicated that Cohen wanted to work in President Trump’s White House and that the former president did not appoint him. It is suggested that he was disappointed. However, Cohen was denied He said during his swearing-in that he actually wanted the office, prompting a reaction of disbelief from the CNN panel.

“Why would he deny this when there are literally hundreds of people who know he wanted to work in President Trump’s White House?” Tapper asked.


Trump attorney Todd Branch tried They asked Cohen about his interactions with friends, family, and others about the potential role, to prove that he aspired to the White House job. Cohen reportedly told him that he just wanted Trump to consider him and didn’t actually want a job in the White House.

“The testimony here is bizarre because it contradicts even the prosecution witnesses,” said Tim Parlatore, Trump’s former lawyer. “So, we heard from Stormy Daniels’ lawyer that Michael Cohen was complaining to him about not getting a job in the White House. And he wanted to be the AG, etc. That’s what it was. So it’s strange that he would deny it at this point. And maybe Todd would bring out that Michael Cohen is actively lying to the jury in this moment. I think he’s having fun.”

“There’s all this testimony, there’s all the evidence from Michael Cohen’s cell phone that the FBI seized, some of which is now being used to show that Michael Cohen is not currently telling the truth.” said Tapper.
