A CNN panel said Michael Cohen made a false claim Wednesday when he said he never wanted a job in the Trump White House during his testimony before the House Oversight Committee.
“The one potential problem that I thought Michael Cohen has is when he was asked if he wanted a job in the White House, and he said no,” correspondent Dana Bash said. “Our reporting, I know, Pam, you have been told and I have been told, all of us, by people in and around the process real time, he very much wanted a job in the White House.”
Host Jake Tapper played the clip in which Rep. Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) pressed Cohen about his desire to work in the White House.

“How long did you work in the White House?” Jordan asked.
“I never worked in the White House,” Cohen responded.
“That’s the point, isn’t it, Mr. Cohen? … You wanted to work in the White House, but you didn’t get brought to the dance,” Jordan continued.
“I think the issue there is that one sentence: ‘I did not want to go to the White House.’ All of our reporting suggests that’s not true,” Tapper said.
