President Trump called for Congress to obtain the manuscript of Michael Cohen's unpublished book, in which the president claimed would show his former lawyer "committed perjury on a scale not seen before" in a series of Friday tweets.
"Congress must demand the transcript of Michael Cohen's new book, given to publishers a short time ago. Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony. Like a different person! He is totally discredited!"
The backdrop: Cohen told the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday that Trump is "becoming an autocrat" and accused him of being "racist" and a "con man." The Daily Beast reported last year that Cohen's book proposal would discuss his time as Trump's "family fix-it guy," but its publication was derailed due to the Stormy Daniels controversy.
