Michael Cohen, the president’s longtime personal attorney, is testifying before the House Oversight Committee. Cohen intends to give Congress an account of what he calls President Trump's "lies, racism and cheating" — including lawbreaking since Trump took office, a person familiar with his plans said on Tuesday. Cohen's Hill appearance comes about two months before he is scheduled to report to federal prison to serve a three-year sentence.
He pleaded guilty to several crimes, including tax evasion, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress. His credibility is expected to be a central focus at the oversight committee hearing scheduled for Wednesday, particularly for Republicans.
