Trump Lawyer Jay Sekulow Denies President Edited Cohen’s Testimony: ‘Completely False’

President Donald Trump‘s lawyer has responded to former Trump fixer Michael Cohen‘s claim that his prior Congressional testimony was edited by Trump’s personal legal team.

During his testimony in front of Congress today, Cohen said that the president’s “personal lawyers reviewed and edited” his statement that ultimately led to his conviction.

In November, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress.

Trump’s personal lawyer though is denying the veracity of Cohen’s claim.

“Today’s testimony by Michael Cohen that attorneys for the President edited or changed his statement to Congress to alter the duration of the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations is completely false.” Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president said in a statement sent out Wednesday night.

Cohen’s testified in front of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday. His testimony is expected to continue on Thursday behind closed doors.
