Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former lawyer is, testifying on Capitol Hill for the third consecutive day.  Yesterday, in seven hours of televised testimony before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Cohen was contrite for his past prevarication to Congress, and vehement in his depiction of his former boss as a bigot, a conman, and a liar.  

So, what did we learn from Cohen’s testimony?  Was Cohen credible?  What did his public testimony portend for future hearings?
