President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen could offer no proof to support his claim that Trump is a racist when pressed by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) during a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday.

Meadows asked Cohen whether he knew Lynne Patton, a former event planner for the Trump organization and current administrator of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Yes, I do,” Cohen responded, adding that he is responsible for Patton joining the Trump organization.

Meadows then told Cohen that he had spoken with Trump more than 300 times and has never heard a racist word come out of his mouth. He asked Cohen whether he had any proof that Trump is a racist.

“Do you have tape recordings of those conversations?” Meadows asked.

“No, sir,” Cohen said.

“Well, you taped everyone else,” Meadows retorted.

Meadows and Cohen then exchanged in a back and forth about how many times Cohen had recorded individuals over the years.

“Do you have proof, yes or no?” Meadows asked.

“I do,” Cohen. “Ask Ms. Patton how many people who are black are executives at the Trump organization, and the answer is zero.”
