Michael Cohen Testimony Schedule

Cohen will also provide what he will claim is evidence, in the form of documents, of criminal conduct by Trump since he became president, according to the person, who requested anonymity to discuss the confidential preparation.

Lawmakers want to know why President Trump's former personal attorney lied about the timing of talks about a Trump Tower real estate project in Moscow; Catherine Herridge reports.

Cohen, who once said he would "take a bullet" for the president, reversed himself a year ago amid mounting pressure from prosecutors looking into his, and Trump's, affairs.

Cohen will also offer new information on Trump's financial statements that "have never been produced before" relating to how Trump represented the values of his assets in financial transactions and other matters, the source said.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders lashed out at The Journal's report on Tuesday morning, calling Cohen a "disgraced felon" and saying it was "laughable" that people would listen to his "lies". A person with knowledge of Cohen's planned testimony before the House Oversight Committee told the Wall Street Journal that Cohen will publicly accuse Trump of criminal conduct in relation to the hush-money payments.

The White House is seeking to discredit President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer as he makes a series of appearances on Capitol Hill.

Cohen had been scheduled to speak to the three committees earlier this month, but rescheduled all of those appearances for different reasons.

The committee's biggest message to Cohen, who formerly acted as the RNC's deputy finance chairman: "Have fun in prison!"


"Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same".

Matt Gartz threatened to reveal Michael Cohen secret girlfriends ahead of his testimony to Congress.

Critics noted that the tweet sounded a lot like Trump's own threats to Cohen, which many argued were clear instances of witness intimidation - a federal crime.

The accusations are related to the hush-money payment Cohen facilitated to the porn star Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about an affair she says she had with Trump, which Trump denies.

Cohen's week of interviews come as House Democrats launch multiple investigations into Trump's ties to Russian Federation and conflict-of-interest issues within the administration.

The court ruled that Cohen's disbarment is retroactive to November 29, 2018, "the date [Cohen] ceased to be an attorney as a result of his conviction of the crime of making false statements to Congress in violation of 18 USC 1001 (a)(2), a federal felony".

He'll follow that up with testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday behind closed doors.
