Cohen hearing 'purely political': McCarthy

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Kevin McCarthy, the top Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, assailed young Democratic lawmakers Thursday, saying "all they talk about is impeachment." for attempting to "impeach" President Donald Trump while he was abroad negotiating with North Korea.

Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen assailed the president's character on Wednesday in the often times tense congressional hearing, calling Trump a "conman" who knew in advance about the release of stolen emails aimed at hurting his 2016 election Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

But Cohen, the Republican president's onetime "fixer," said he had no direct evidence that Trump colluded with Moscow to bolster his White House campaign, a key line of inquiry in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation which has dogged Trump during his two years in office.
