Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, reacted to news of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea Thursday, saying that Cohen is part of a “trend” of those in President Donald Trump’s inner circle being found out to have lied to officials.

“Well, there seems to be a trend here amongst so many of the President’s closest allies, that they don’t tell the truth,” Warner told reporters. “Although, you’ve also got a White House that seems on a daily basis not to have its facts straight.”
