Cohen's testimony on Trump dealings will resume next week

Michael Cohen takes aim at Trump during hearing

Mr. Schiff also announced the House Intelligence Committee will listen to testimony from Felix Sater, a business executive who worked with Cohen to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Testimony on Wednesday from Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's prison-bound ex-friend and fixer, served up plenty of major revelations about the real estate heir's rise to the presidency.

Cohen is scheduled to complete his testimony with the House Intelligence Committee on March 6.

Adam Schiff called the closed-door session with Cohen productive and said lawmakers were able to "drill down in great detail" on issues they are investigating.

Weisselberg is a key figure in the Manhattan US attorney's office's investigation into President Donald Trump's business dealings during the 2016 campaign.

Reports previous year indicated Cohen was trying to pitch a book, one favourable about President Trump, and that Cohen had an agreement with a Hachette Book Group imprint before his legal troubles ended the deal. He then said that in his absence the Trump Organization would be managed by the president's children, specifically Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.

"We would provide them with these copies so they would understand that the premium, which is based sometimes upon the individual's capabilities to pay, would be reduced", Cohen said. It has also dogged Cohen, who told Congress that the project was abandoned in early 2016 when, in reality, it was still alive in mid-summer of that year.

The ex-Playboy model said she had an affair with Trump in 2006 and 2007.

"The financial guy, the guy Trump has to turn to every time he wants to spend more than 50 bucks, that's the guy who's best placed for an investigator to turn to", Cotter, who has extensive experience prosecuting organized crime, told INSIDER.

Indian Air Force jet crashes in Budgam, one killed
Some of the flights en route to Jammu, Leh and Srinagar airports have been diverted to their origin stations, officials added. A civilian Kifayat Ahmad Ganaie (30) son of Mohammad Ramzan Ganie and two IAF pilots were earlier killed due to the crash.

Cohen described a widespread culture of lying around Trump, as he sought to explain why he stayed by the president's side for so long.

Asked if there's a chance Trump would ask him to take a job on either "the political side" or the "governmental side", Cohen says, "I certainly hope so".

The panel intends to summon Allen Weisselberg, the chief financial officer of the Trump Organization, for a hearing, but a date hasn't been set, an official familiar with the decision said. US presidents and presidential candidates for decades have routinely made their tax filings public in order to be transparent about their personal finances.

Cohen said he had no direct evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Moscow during the election campaign, but that he had suspicions that something untoward had occurred. He testified that Trump used his inner circle to cover up politically damaging allegations about sex, and lied throughout the 2016 election campaign about his business interests in Russian Federation.

He has provided limited cooperation on the allegations surrounding the hush money payments to McDougal and Clifford as part of an immunity agreement with federal prosecutors in NY, according to NBC News reporting.

As he departed Thursday, Cohen insisted he told all three Congressional panels the truth. even as two of the president's biggest allies referred him to the Justice Department for possible criminal prosecution for allegedly lying to Congress.

Maria Vullo, former New York Department of Financial Services superintendent, said making false statements to an insurance company can be a basis to void the policy for fraud.

In other tweets Friday, Trump suggested Democrats were using Cohen to investigate his business dealings and finances because a two-year investigation into possible coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign "has fallen apart". On Wednesday, he testified that Mr Trump, Mr Trump's son and Mr Weisselberg all participated in an attempt to repay Mr Cohen, under the guise of a non-existent retainer agreement.
