President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen will testify Wednesday that Trump dodged military service in Vietnam with false claims about a medical condition.

In his opening statement before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Cohen will say that Trump told him there “was no surgery” for bone spurs and instructed him not to answer reporters’ specific questions about his draft deferment.

“Mr. Trump claimed it was because of a bone spur, but when I asked for medical records, he gave me none and said there was no surgery,” Cohen will say in his testimony, according to a copy of his prepared remarks obtained by The Hill.

“He told me not to answer the specific questions by reporters but rather offer simply the fact that he received a medical deferment,” Cohen adds. “He finished the conversation with the following comment. ‘You think I’m stupid, I wasn’t going to Vietnam.’”

  1. Big Freaking DEAL! The number of draft dodgers during Vietnam, those going to Canada, and other foreign countries. Doctors writing letters that the boy has an allergic reaction to SPAM and MREs. Get over it already, he lied, and he was joined by many lawyers, doctors, and other people who, what are going to be tried and convicted. Carter pardoned them all, remember. This is not a worth the circus unless you’re a Congressional clown. Regarding the emails, would you be nearly as entertained, press corps, with a Clinton reality show in the White House?

  2. That’s it! This is the smoking gun we’ve been waiting for. Trump should resign immediately! He should not be allowed back into the US. Nanci Pelosi should be sworn in as our new President this afternoon.
