President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is set to testify before the Senate intelligence committee in a closed interview.
He arrived on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning, meanwhile, president Donald Trump is on his way to Vietnam where he will talk with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Cohen is expected to give a detailed firsthand account into criminal acts Trump allegedly participated in while in office, according to another media source.
The source also shared that he will make a statement on the contacts Trump has with Russia and what he knows about the relationship between both parties.
Cohen is basically set to tell it all over the course of a three-day testimony. It is said that he will bring everything to light, including hush payments that were made before the 2016 election and other sensitive matters.
The White House has since tried to discredit Cohen’s credibility by calling him a “disgraced felon.”
“Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same,” Trump press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
She continued by saying “It’s laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies.”
Cohen is set to uncover lies, racism and foul business practices Trump allegedly acted out. He will also discuss his motives behind lying to the president and why he now wants to publicly tell the truth.
Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr shared with The Associated Press that ‘no questions will be off limit” and Cohen should expect to get any question about anything.
Cohen worked with Trump for 10 years, he pleaded guilty to several charges last year which landed a three-year prison sentence.
He will report to prison on May 6th.
