GOP Judiciary Ranking Member Collins: Whitaker Said He Didn’t Have Conversations With Trump About Cohen

IAN HANCHETT

While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) stated that during his testimony before the committee, former Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker “said that he did not have conversations with the president about Cohen.”

Collins responded to Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s (D-NY) claim about Whitaker’s testimony by saying, “I think that’s an interpretation of what he said. Mr. Whitaker said that he did not have conversations with the president about Cohen.”

He added, “If Mr. Nadler chooses to say, by absence of what he didn’t say, if that’s the way he’s interpreting it, then I’ll have to — Mr. Nadler will have to answer to that.”
