Michael Cohen is making the news as he continues to lie to Congress and whoever else is willing to listen. This time Cohen made the claim that he never wanted to work at the White House but even the Fake News King, CNN, was able to determine that he was lying.
“CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash slammed Cohen over his remarks, saying that he was not being honest with his response.
“I think the issue there is that one sentence: ‘I did not want to go to the White House.’ All of our reporting suggests that’s not true,” Tapper said.
Bash noted that everyone “witnessed this in real time that this president probably more than any other, if he wants somebody in the White House, they’re there.”
“You know, Reince Priebus and John Kelly probably didn’t want Omarosa to be working in the White House and other people, but they were there because the president wanted it to be so,” Bash continued. “So if Michael Cohen and the president really wanted it to happen, more importantly the president, it would have happened and he wanted it.”

CNN: Cohen isn't telling the truth when he said under questioning by Jim Jordan that he didn't want a job in the White House.
“CNN reported in May that Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, sought to keep Cohen away from a White House job, and he was rarely seen there following the inauguration. The proximity that Cohen initially had to Trump during the transition greatly weakened after Inauguration Day, multiple people told CNN at the time. One person described Cohen as having become “disenfranchised” in the early months of the Trump administration — but that he nevertheless continued to portray himself as Trump’s go-to guy.”
It looks like it was a good idea to keep Cohen out of the White House as he has proven himself to be unworthy of any position of note.
