WATCH: Mark Meadows Invites Lynne Patton to Blast Cohen Racism Claims During Hearing

Cohen’s allegations of racism fell flat during his Congressional testimony.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) invited a former employee of the Trump organization and current Housing and Urban Development (HUD) employee Lynne Patton – a black woman – to Wednesday’s Congressional testimony by President Donald J. Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen.

The purpose was for Patton’s invitation was to refute Cohen’s claims that Trump is a “racist,” which Cohen made under oath, despite working for Trump for a decade.

“I asked Lynne to come today in her personal capacity to shed some light,” Meadows told Cohen. “How long have you known Ms. Patton?”

Cohen responded by saying that he was “responsible for Ms. Patton joining the Trump organization” and apparently for her employment at HUD, despite the fact that Cohen never worked for the Trump administration.

“I’m glad you acknowledge that because you made some very demeaning comments about the President that Ms. Patton doesn’t agree with,” Meadows continued. “In fact, it has to do with your claim of racism. She says that as a daughter of a man born in Birmingham, Alabama, that there is no way that she would work for an individual who was racist. How do you reconcile the two of those?”

Cohen dodged the question by saying that he was the son of a Holocaust survivor.

“But, Mr. Cohen, I guess what I’m saying is I’ve talked to the President over 300 times. I’ve not heard, one time, a racist comment out of his mouth in private. So how do you recognize it? Do you have proof of those allegations?”

Cohen, who has already been found guilty of lying to Congress and will begin a three-year federal prison sentence in May, was dumbfounded.

Today’s exercise in drudging up old news from the bogus Russian “collusion” investigation has so far been a bust for Democrats.
