"When you filed a false tax return in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, was all that out of blind loyalty to the president?
(Cohen:) No it was not.
When you failed to report 4 million in income to the Internal Revenue Service, did you do that to protect Donald Trump?
(Cohen) No I did not.
And when you failed to pay 1.4 million in taxes, I got constituents who don't make that in a lifetime, when you failed to pay 1.4 million in taxes to the U.S. Treasury, was that out of some blind loyalty to the President United States?
(Cohen) It was not. But the number was 1.38 and change and I have paid that money back.
Here's the point, the chairman just gave you a 30 minute opening statement and you have a history of lying over and over and over again. And frankly don't take my word for it, take what the court said, take what the Southern District of New York said: 'Cohen did crimes that were marked by a pattern of deception and that permeated his professional life."
3. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio:
"If this statement back here doesn't say it all: Cohen's consciousness of wrongdoing is fleeting. His remorse is minimal, his instinct to blame others is to blame others is strong.' There's only one thing wrong with that statement. His remorse is nonexistent. He just debated a member of Congress saying I really didn't do anything wrong with a false bank things that that I'm guilty of and going to prison for."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Michael Cohen, Former Trump attorney:
"Mr. Jordan, that's not, that's not what I said and you know that that's not what I said. I pled guilty and I take responsibility for my actions. Shame on you, Mr. Jordan. That's not what I said, shame on you. That's not what I said. What I said is I took responsibility and I take responsibility. What I was doing is explaining to the gentleman that his facts are inaccurate. I still, I take responsibility for my mistakes. All right? I am remorseful and I am going to prison. I will be away from my wife and family for years. So before you turn around and you cast more aspersions, please understand there are people watching you today that know me a whole lot better. I made mistakes. I own them and I didn't fight with the Southern District of New York. I didn't put this system through an entire scenario but what I did do is I pled guilty and I am going to be, again, going to prison."
President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen clashed with Republicans on Capitol Hill Wednesday as he testified before a House Oversight Committee about his decade of involvement with Trump as his longtime attorney.
The committee's top Republican, Rep. Jim Jordan, of Ohio, sought early on to undermine Cohen's credibility, saying he "has a history of lying over and over and over again."
Jordan also told the committee Cohen's "remorse is nonexistent," which caused Cohen to lash out at the Republican, saying, "Shame on you, Mr. Jordan."
Cohen insisted repeatedly that he is remorseful for his earlier lies to Congress, saying, "I made mistakes. I own them and.... I am going to prison."
For years, Trump's loyal attorney, Cohen has turned on his former boss and cooperated with Mueller's Russia investigation.
He begins a three-year prison sentence in May after pleading guilty to lying to Congress and committing campaign finance violations while working for Trump.
