Yep, Michael Cohen is a proven liar. Just like all the mob witnesses to testify to put away mob bosses. His word can only be trusted now because:
• His previous motivation to lie was based on loyalty to a criminal enterprise
• His present motivation to tell the truth is based on the fact that his hope at a reduced sentence is contingent on only telling the truth
• Evidence that he is telling the truth will be based on corroborating documents and supporting evidence, not on his word alone.
• If Trump asserts that Cohen is lying about his financial record, Trump himself can easily disprove Cohen by releasing his tax returns and all business records. If Trump refuses to do so, it is his admission that Cohen is telling the truth.
