"Is there any other wrongdoing or illegal act that you are aware of regarding Donald Trump that we haven't yet discussed today?" Democrat Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois asked Cohen, in the middle of the seven-and-and-a-half hour hearing full of stunning, ugly allegations.
Cohen replied: "Yes and again those are a part of the investigation that's currently being looked at by the Southern District of New York."

Cohen himself also pointed out how odd it is that the Republicans asked no substantive questions regarding why Cohen was brought there, just questions attempting to discredit him--and that they have no problem with the 9000 or so public lies from Trump since he took office. In effect, they let Democrats control Cohen's testimony.
Another genius move from the Republicans was accusing Cohen of hiding evidence...in boxes that had already been taken and returned by investigators. Nothing substantive or useful, except for a Midwest representative whose name is escaping me right now.
In fact, Cohen passed up many opportunities where he could have speculated or cast more condemning judgments of Trump. Notably, when he was asked what Trump fears most and when he was asked about a tape in which Trump allegedly hit Melania in an elevator. Cohen said he can't imagine Trump doing so, and doesn't believe the tape exists.
Not really in regards to the testimony, but I love seeing conservative men lose their shit over AOC. It's a bizarre fixation.
