Michael Cohen Admits during Testimony He’s Considering Running for Congress

Disgraced former attorney and convicted perjurer Michael Cohen admitted during testimony at President Donald Trump’s  “hush money” trail that he’s considering running for U.S. Congress.

While he didn’t reveal which party affiliation he would run on, it’s fairly obvious to most observers which side he would choose.

The admission came on the witness stand Monday during Cohen’s fourth day of testimony in the Democrats’ anti-Trump case in New York.

Cohen told the court that he would pursue congressional office because he has the “best name recognition out there.”

He did not elaborate if he would run in New York.

Trump’s attorney Todd Blanche pressed Cohen if his name recognition is due to the 45th president.

The question prompted Cohen to claim that his well-known name is only partly due to his work for Trump but not because of it.

“My name recognition is because of the journey I have been on,” Cohen told the court with a straight face.

Cohen’s testimony in Manhattan court came amid him also revealing that he worked on pitching a TV show about himself, called “The Fixer.”

However, the show has not yet been picked up by a network.

Cohen had previously floated a potential congressional run, including earlier this month on his TikTok account.

On TikTok, Cohen said he would run as a Democrat, the Washington Post reported.

“I am interested and there’s a multitude of folks encouraging me to run,” Cohen said of a potential congressional run last year in comments to Semafor.

He also previously ran as a Republican for New York City Council in the early 2000s, Spectrum News previously reported.

However, Cohen was defeated by a Democrat in his quest for the seat.

Cohen is a disbarred attorney who was sentenced to three years in prison in 2018.

He was jailed after he pleaded guilty to charges including campaign finance fraud and lying to Congress.

Cohen’s testimony in the NY v. Trump case included him detailing last week that he also lied under oath to Judge William H. Pauley.

Pauley is the judge who sentenced him to three years in prison.

Cohen has been slammed as a “grifter” by some critics and legal experts.

Last week, ​​a lawyer who formerly advised Cohen, Robert Costello, testified before Congress that Cohen is a serial liar.

NY v. Trump focuses on the prosecution team trying to prove Trump falsified business records 34 times to conceal a $130,000 payment to former pornography star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election.

The “hush money” was supposedly paid to quiet her claims of an alleged affair with Trump.

Trump has pleaded not guilty in the case and has repeatedly denied any affair with Daniels.

The prosecution has yet to provide any evidence to link Trump to any such payments or an alleged affair.

On Monday morning, Trump briefly addressed the media when the court started nearly an hour earlier than its typical 9:30 a.m. start time.

He slammed the case as one promoted by Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration and the Department of Justice.

Trump warned that the case is meant to meddle in the 2024 election and lamented that the trial has kept him from the campaign trail.

“It’s an attack on [President Biden’s] political opponent. That’s all it is,” Trump said.

“All of the things you saw over the last four weeks, most of it should have never even been brought up.

“And then on top of that, there’s no crime.

“And we go on day after day,” Trump noted.

“And I have to tell Iowa, ‘I’m sorry, I won’t be able to make it.’

“I tell New Hampshire, ‘Sorry, I won’t be able to make it. I’m sitting in an ice box all day,'” he said.

Elsewhere during Cohen’s Monday testimony, he admitted that he stole money from President Trump’s company.

The admission has sent panic through the Democrats and their corporate media allies as it will create “reasonable doubt.”
