WASHINGTON — Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer who implicated him in a scheme to pay hush money to two women claiming to have had affairs with him, has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next month and give “a full and credible account” of his work for Mr. Trump.


This testimony will be public.

Mr. Cohen’s decision to appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7 sets the stage for a blockbuster public hearing that threatens to further damage the president’s image and could clarify the depth of his legal woes. Mr. Cohen, a consigliere to Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer and presidential candidate as well as informally as president, was privy to the machinations of Mr. Trump’s inner circle and key moments under scrutiny by both the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, and federal prosecutors in New York.


guess we will hear what he has told Mueller. Depending I guess on what Mueller says he can talk about?

That right there is what it's all about!

There will be many more such public hearings in the new democrat majority house committees all designed to damage Trump's image, and if possible destroy him, before the 2020 election.

It has beguned.

Bob Mueller has given Robert Cohen the freedom to answer any questions put to him by Congress, before he heads to Prison in March, for lying to Congress and the Special Counsel in 2018.

Apparently Cohen knows nothing that would "spill the beans" ahead of Mueller's report.

It's like 2015/2016 all over again. Of course, we know how that turned out.

Shouldn't campaign funds pay for these public spectacles?

With Elijah Cummings chairing the Committee, the hearings will be a giant circus with every kind of BS known to Man 🤣🦓

Honestly, who cares about hush money? The guy wasn't even president yet. JFK slept with Marilyn Monroe. Nobody cares. It's not illegal. He never testified under oath, no laws we're broken. Just stop with this absurdity.

At a hearing last August in federal court in New York, Cohen testified that Trump had directed him to commit a crime by arranging payments before the 2016 election to two women who said they had engaged in extramarital affairs with Trump.

I can't believe that full and open testimony will be allowed without some limits from Meuller's team. This does not make sense.

I wonder what he will lie about this time around before heading off to prison for lying to them the last time!

Makes perfect sense.

If there were an actual criminal case against either. Cohen and Trump would get their DUE PROCESS in a court of LAW.

Not the cess pool we lovingly call Congress(that place where laws are suppose to get made).

What's the point in putting someone under oath whom has already been convicted of lying under oath?

Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer who implicated him in a scheme to pay hush money to two women claiming to have had affairs with him, has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee next month and give “a full and credible account” of his work for Mr. Trump.

.. snip...

Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court in Manhattan in August to tax fraud, making false statements to a bank and a campaign finance violation. In court, Mr. Cohen said that violation was the result of payments he made at the behest of his former client to a woman who was prepared to go public during the 2016 campaign about an affair with Mr. Trump years earlier

That cooperation has earned him the ire of Mr. Trump, who has called Mr. Cohen a “weak person.” The president said he did nothing wrong in the campaign finance charge, and he accused his former lawyer of lying to prosecutors to try to get a reduced sentence. In court filings, prosecutors have not named Mr. Trump, referring to a “candidate for federal office” and “Individual-1.”

Because THIS time the lie will be for the benefit of Mueller and Co, so he won't be convicted for it.

I love me some political theater.

It's all they have.

And no, it is explicitly NOT a crime but they have to have SOMETHING to keep throwing against the wall.

Which works rather well if your voter base is comprised of people who are not the sharpest knives in the drawer, as it were.

Just watch on this thread how excited some will get about it!!!
