By The Blaze. A new poll shows just what percentage of registered voters thought the testimony of Michael Cohen against President Donald Trump before Congress was credible. . .
The HarrisX/TheHill poll found that only 37 percent of registered voters surveyed said that they found the former lawyer and confidante of the president to be credible.
Cohen flipped on Trump after ten years of being his close personal friend and lawyer. In dramatic testimony before Congress, he accused the president of indirectly suborning perjury and said that he was a racist and a liar.
Those accusations were found to be non-credible according to 25 percent surveyed in the poll.

Michael Cohen’s Lawyer Admits Cohen Was Interested in Working in Trump White House
By Fox News. An attorney for Michael Cohen acknowledged in a statement Friday that Cohen was once interested in working in the White House under President Trump but later decided against it – amid claims from Republicans that Cohen lied this week about his past ambitions for a high-profile White House position.
“The fact is, early on, Michael Cohen speculated about a possible position in the White House,” Cohen attorney Lanny Davis said in a statement. “But after he consulted with his family and friends, he decided that he preferred to stay at home in New York City and be ‘personal attorney to the president.’”
On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Republicans on Thursday referred Cohen to the Justice Department for alleged perjury, claiming he lied during sworn testimony before the panel a day earlier about a number of issues, including his ambitions to work in the Trump administration. Davis maintains that Cohen was truthful.
“If this is what Mr. Trump and his supporters are focusing on — and not a single rebuttal of any fact asserted by Mr. Cohen in his long day of testimony under oath before the Oversight Committee — that says a lot,” Davis said Friday. “This is the classic Trump tactic we have seen for a long time —divert and disparage rather than confront facts and tell the truth.” (Read more from “Michael Cohen’s Lawyer Admits Cohen Was Interested in Working in Trump White House” HERE)
