Report: Cohen To Claim Trump Broke Law While In Office


As President Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen prepares to testify publicly on Capitol Hill today, the mood can best be summed up in two words: Game on. According to reports, Cohen spent yesterday’s time in the House apologizing for lying to Congress.

But today? Cohen will reportedly accuse the President of criminal activities while in office. According to reports, Cohen will detail alleged criminal conduct related to a hush money payment to former porn star Stormy Daniels. Word is that he’ll also present documentation that he was reimbursed by Trump in several installments throughout 2017 for the payment. Along the way, Cohen will allege that Trump is “racist,” a “conman” and a “cheat.”.

Of course, it’s worth mentioning that Cohen has pleaded guilty and will serve prison time for breaking campaign finance laws related to the payment to Daniels. He’s also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress, but Maine Republican Susan Collins says we’ll see "a very different guy" than who first testified in 2017. Cohen will begin serving a three-year prison sentence in May.
