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.
