The GOP and the White House have launched preemptive strikes on President Trump's former personal lawyer, who on yesterday started three days of congressional testimony on the president's alleged wrongdoing, related to possible collusion with Russian election interference and campaign finance violations.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders started things off by calling it "pathetic" of Congress to give Michael Cohen, a "convicted liar", another opportunity to "spread his lies."
The Republican National Committee doubled down by releasing a video on its official YouTube channel titled "Have Fun in Prison!," which consists of a montage of clips from old television appearances in which Cohen, who was once the deputy finance chair of the RNC, ardently praised Trump.
"This whole charade is not about truth," RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel toldFox News. "It is a last ditch effort to save face and cast blame on everyone but himself for his crimes."
