Trump's Ex-Lawyer Could Reveal His "Lies, Racism And Cheating"

Michael Cohen to be publicly questioned on hush payments, Trump's truthfulness

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer and problem fixer, arrived in Congress on Tuesday for a closed-door hearing in which he was expected to detail his ex-boss's alleged law-breaking and questionable business practices.

Such testimony would mark the first time Cohen accused Trump of criminal conduct while serving as president.

Cohen is also set to be questioned by the Senate and House intelligence committees on Tuesday and Thursday, but those sessions will take place behind closed doors.

An unnamed source close to Cohen told the Wall Street Journal that Cohen was prepared to discuss Trump's "lies, racism and cheating" as well as "evidence of criminal conduct since Mr Trump became president", but gave no specifics to the newspaper.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to discredit Cohen in a statement on Tuesday, calling him a "disgraced felon", "laughable" and "pathetic". The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to describe Cohen's expected testimony.

Democrats on the House Oversight Committee plan to publicly question Cohen about Trump's personal finances, including the payments to women, as well as alleged efforts by Trump and his lawyers to intimidate Cohen to try to keep him from testifying.

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

On 29 November, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress by telling lawmakers in 2017 that all efforts relating to the Moscow project had ceased by January 2016.

However, unlike the closed door meetings in which Cohen will have with Congress today and on Thursday, he will not be permitted to discuss the Russian Federation probe at all.

Sen. Richard Burr, chair of the Senate intelligence committee arrives for Cohen's testimony.

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 is expected to outline in gory detail just how much of a role Trump played in the episode both before and after becoming President of the United States.

The 52-year-old was convicted last year by NY federal prosecutors of campaign finance violations and tax evasion and by special counsel Robert Mueller of lying to Congress about Trump Organization plans in Moscow.

He said he needed to recover from surgery and also was concerned about what he considered to be threats to his family from Trump and the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. On Tuesday, he goes behind closed doors for a talk with the Senate Intelligence Committee.
