Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, trashed Michael Cohen's upcoming testimony before the Democratic-majority House Oversight Committee, saying testimony from Andrew McCabe and Rod Rosenstein is more important.
In an interview on Hill.TV's "Rising" show aired Thursday, Jordan, the ranking Republican on the panel, was asked if he is worried Democratic lawmakers will block an explanation from former FBI Deputy Director McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein on reports they discussed removing President Donald Trump from office.
"Of course I'm concerned about it," Jordan replied.
"Instead of bringing in Rod Rosenstein and Andy McCabe to answer our questions, they're bringing in Michael Cohen to testify in front of Congress next week," he continued.
"Michael Cohen to testify in front of Congress, and in two weeks Michael Cohen is going to prison for lying to Congress," Jordan said. "So, that's where the Democrats are taking this – instead of obviously where it should go, which is Rod Rosenstein, Andy McCabe, under oath answering questions."
Cohen was sentenced in 2018 to three years in prison for charges including lying to Congress, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations, all crimes he committed while working for Trump.
