Issa Slams ‘Turncoat Lawyer’ Cohen, Says Even If Trump Lied About Trump Tower Meeting ‘Nobody’s Going To Be Surprised’

California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa hammered “turncoat lawyer” Michael Cohen on Saturday while acknowledging that, if news unfolds that President Trump did lie about knowing about the infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting, “nobody’s going to be surprised.”

Issa, during a Saturday morning appearance with Fox News host Neil Cavuto, called Cohen a “turncoat lawyer, a lawyer who deserves to be disbarred for a number of his actions including recording his client clandestinely, makes a much better story than ‘Businessman Makes America Great Again.’”

The California congressman also downplayed the possibility that the president is lying.

“But what if he’s proven to be a liar, congressman?” asked Cavuto.

“If he’s proven to have not told the whole truth about the fact that campaigns look for dirt, and if someone offers it, you listen to them, nobody’s going to be surprised,” said Issa. “There are some things in politics that you just take for granted.” (RELATED: LAURA INGRAHAM MOCKS CNN’S JEFFREY TOOBIN, MEDIA FOR MICHAEL COHEN COVERAGE HYPOCRISY)

“You don’t think this has any long-term impact?” asked the Fox News host. “He wouldn’t be the first politician, or president for that matter, to maybe just misrepresent things?”

“Businessmen listen to almost everyone who might be helpful, and by the way, they make pragmatic decisions about how to make bad stories go away,” replied Issa.
