George Conway: Hope Hicks ‘absolutely’ corroborates Cohen story on Trump

Conservative lawyer George Conway said former Trump aide Hope Hicks’ testimony at former President Trump’s hush money trial “absolutely” corroborates his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen’s story about Trump in the case.

“She put in Donald Trump’s mouth, the fact that he understood that those payments were made on his behalf before the election by Michael Cohen,” Conway said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” with host Wolf Blitzer, while speaking about Trump.

“And that’s just… that’s devastating testimony. It absolutely corroborates Michael Cohen’s story, which has been corroborated in numerous respects, and it shows that he knew that when he was signing those checks with the backup that said… he was doing this at the Resolute Desk for goodness sake, that he, when he saw the backup, and the backup said ‘legal retainers,’ he knew that wasn’t true.”

Trump’s hush money trial began last Monday, marking the first criminal trial of a former American president. He has been charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in relation to reimbursements to Cohen, who paid an adult film actor $130,000 prior to the 2016 election to keep quiet about an alleged affair with Trump, which he denies.

Cohen has claimed that the former president directed him to make hush-money payments to women who have said they had previous affairs with Trump.

“First of all, nothing at the Trump Organization was ever done unless it was run through Mr. Trump,” Cohen said back in 2018. “He directed me to make the payments, he directed me to become involved in these matters.”

Hicks fell apart on the stand Friday when talking about a call she had with her former boss in which he said that Cohen had made a payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels out of the goodness of his heart. She seemed to have doubts that Cohen did it for that reason, and called it “out of character.”
