Rep. Jim Jordan, who led Republican efforts to attempt to discredit former presidential attorney Michael Cohen in front of the House Oversight Committee this week, told NBC News’ Chuck Todd on Sunday that President Donald Trump has not lied about Russia, and that he remains skeptical about whether the Kremlin interfered in the 2016 campaign on Trump’s behalf. “I don’t think the president has lied about Russia at all,” the Ohio Republican said. “Who knows why they did it? But there is zero evidence... I mean, they can do whatever they’re trying to do, who knows what their motives were? What I know is there is not one bit of evidence to show any type of coordination, collusion, conspiracy whatsoever between the Trump campaign and Russia to impact the election.” Jordan also reiterated deep skepticism of Cohen’s reliability during his congressional testimony, claiming that the only part of his sworn testimony that could be verified was Cohen’s own name, and declared that if the Kremlin had interfered with the campaign, it was on Hillary Clinton’s behalf. “There is all kinds of evidence to show that the Clinton campaign worked with Russians to impact the elections,” Jordan said.
