Back in the White House, President Trump used his Friday morning to make his feelings clear about his former lawyer’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

In a series of unhinged tweets on Friday morning, Trump alleged that Cohen wrote a book called “Love Letters To Trump” and was shopping it around after the incidents in Charlottesville and Helsinki, which Cohen said were factors in his decision to go rogue.

Trump claimed the manuscript was the “exact opposite of his fake testimony, which is now a lie!” He reiterated the White House talking point that Cohen has no credibility, argued that Cohen committed “perjury” in his testimony, and claimed that “Crooked Hillary” was paying Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
