Ohio Sex Assault Scandal Reemerges As Ex-Prosecutor Warns Jim Jordan Will Try To ‘Disrupt’ Cohen’s Testimony
A former federal prosecutor has warned Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) will attempt to disrupt Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony before a House committee and turn the hearing into a circus in order to protect President Donald Trump. She also took a shot at the Republican lawmaker over allegations that he looked the other way when he was a coach at Ohio State as student-athletes were reportedly sexually assaulted.
During an interview on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, ex-prosecutor Cynthia Alksne said that Donald Trump is a liar and that Jordan will run interference for him during the hearings which could be devastating for the embattled president.
Asked about the prospect of GOP haranguing Cohen in order to discredit him as not credible, Alksne said she would rather he not testify.
“From a prosecutor’s point of view, you don’t really want your witness in a House committee where Jim ‘looked the other way’ Jordan is doing a cross exam,” she told MSNBC host Alex Witt. “They’re going to be ugly yelling and screaming and it’s a weird set up.”
“What has happened is people like Jim Jordan are framing this case, that really Mueller should be framing” she continued. “Even if Mueller doesn’t allow him to testify about certain things, it will dissolve into a circus. And prosecutors, we’re control freaks — we want to control the witness.”
