Michael Cohen to call Donald Trump a cheat, conman and racist

Patton, who is Trump's appointee serving as the New York-New Jersey regional administrator for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), stood silently behind Meadows as he sought to explain his reasoning for bringing her out.

During his testimony to the House Oversight Committee, Cohen accused President Donald Trump of racism, alleging that he had made bigoted statements about black voters and countries with black leaders.

"Mr. Trump is a racist", Cohen said.

"The fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racist in itself", she said.

The upheaval came at the end of a day-long hearing in which Cohen testified that, among other things, Trump said black people are "too stupid" to vote for him.

"Ask Miss Patton how many people who are black executives at the Trump Organization", Cohen told Meadows.

"I thank the gentlewoman for her comments", Meadows said.

Tlaib, a freshman, was one of the last lawmakers to question Cohen and used part of her time to admonish Meadows for doing so.

Police initially suspected Mr Coley after a neighbour said she saw him and his truck at the apartment after hearing a commotion. A retired Simi Valley detective, Mike Bender, pushed the law enforcement agencies into re-examining the case.

"Mr. Chairman, I ask that her words, when she's referring to an individual member of this body, be taken down and stricken from the record", Meadows said.

"This was when Barack Obama was president of the United States", Cohen added. Tlaib drilled into Meadows over the issue, calling it "insensitive" and possibly racist to "use a Black woman as a prop" the way he did.

In response, Republican Rep. Mark Meadows, who is white, pointed to one of Trump's African-American employees and now a member of the Administration, Lynne Patton, who was in attendance at the hearing.

Oof. If you haven't yet read Allahpundit's two posts on this topic, be sure to do so now in order to pick up on his point about costs when playing the race card against Republicans. "But I said "someone" in general". "Today was about two people who know the president equally and who disagree about the way he is being characterized". He then confirmed with Tlaib that she was not trying to call Meadows a raicst, which she affirmed.

"As a person of color in this committee, that is how I felt at that moment and I wanted to express that", she said.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., citing a personal friendship with Meadows, mediated the dispute by having Tlaib clarify she saw the act as racist, not the congressman. "What he sees is success and failure".

"I said it before, I say it again, the president does not see color, race, creed, religion", Patton told Politico.
