Live coverage: Michael Cohen testifies in front of House Oversight Committee
Michael Cohen, who previously served as President Trump’s personal attorney and the deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committee, is testifying in front of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform Tuesday morning beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Last year, Cohen pleaded guilty to charges involving campaign finance fraud and lying to Congress. There will be no questions about election collusion with Russia, owing to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, but Cohen will likely be asked to discuss Trump’s business practices and what he has described as hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels.
Cohen was originally supposed to testify on Feb. 8 but asked for a delay because of what he said were “threats against his family” by Trump and his associates. Cohen testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee behind closed doors on Tuesday and is scheduled to appear before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
