The Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee said Wednesday that he will not attempt to punish Michael Cohen for misleading the committee last month when he claimed hed never asked President Trump for a pardon.
Rep. Elijah Cummings said Cohen, Mr. Trumps former personal lawyer, has since clarified through his own lawyer that his testimony could have been clearer.
Cohen now says he was only referring to a specific period of time in his testimony, according to a letter from his lawyer.
The Maryland Democrat said that was good enough to get Cohen off the hook. He could have faced prosecution for lying to Congress.

Of course, no reasonable prosecutor would touch this. Now if it were Stone, they would be calling for the death penalty.
We need to break the cycle of two-tier justice.
Justice has one eye open. Dems can lie, but Reps can’t even speak in their own defense.
When a Republican is caught lying the Democrats demand they resign. When a Democrat is caught lying, the Democrats demand they apologize and move on.
This is just like Hillary getting off via corruption.
They just can’t help themselves.
All the accolades going to Cummings are just more window dressing from the swamp. He’s as dirty as the rest of them.
We really do need to clean out the whole of DC...all of it...quickly.
or Flynn...oh wait, they already did.
Why would Cohen be in trouble for what Dems do ALL THE TIME?? He is their stooge......Im surprised he willl actually serve time, but we will wait and see on that.
That’s okay..they will just tack the time he should have got onto Manafort’s sentence.
If I may, just remove the “apologize”.
Elijah is a few brick short of a load anyway. He wouldn’t know if someone was lying to him or not. Ignorance is bliss.
He lied under oath... then he lied under oath about lying under oath and now he’s lying about lying about lying. Douche
I am sorry but in my mind DC has always been a swamp.
Want a new law?
It is not Cap and trade but Tip and Trade.
Pay a Lobbyist enough money and any law you want is done.
Sucks that this the best deal going.
Of course he is not in trouble.
Only Trumps family and associates with good standing with Trump get in trouble.
RATs who break the law never get in trouble.
Cohen read the script word for word so he’s OK ,LOL
