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.

Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
