Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former fixer and personal lawyer, has returned to Capitol Hill on Wednesday for public testimony before the House Oversight Committee in what is expected to be a compelling appearance. Here are the highlights of his testimony so far.
●Cohen has alleged that Trump knew in advance that the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks planned to publish hacked Democratic National Committee emails.
●He has sparred aggressively with GOP lawmakers, who have questioned his credibility and motives for coming forward.
●He detailed how deeply and personally involved Trump was in the scheme to pay off an adult film actress who alleged she had an affair with Trump.
● He described how he, like many in Trump’s orbit, had long sought to protect the president, but made clear: “I am not protecting Mr. Trump anymore.”
● He has suggested federal prosecutors are investigating unspecified criminal allegations involving the president that have not been made public…..
Here are the most important highlights so far:
Mr. Cohen said that Mr. Trump, while president, told him to lie to the public about hush payments to the pornographic film star Stormy Daniels.
Mr. Cohen presented life in “Trump world” as a Faustian bargain in which he and others sacrificed their integrity for the “intoxicating” whiff of power.
Mr. Cohen acknowledged that he lied under oath to Congress about a Trump Tower project in Moscow, saying he was trying to protect Mr. Trump. “I am not protecting Mr. Trump anymore,” he said.
Republicans are assailing his credibility, noting that he is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress.
Mr. Cohen said he had no evidence of collusion with Russia but did have suspicions.
Mr. Cohen offered a blistering assessment of the president: “He is a racist. He is a con man. And he is a cheat.” And Mr. Cohen provided documents including copies of checks and financial statements. [Read his opening statement.]
Cohen says Trump told him to lie about a hush payment
Mr. Cohen said Mr. Trump asked him to lie to the public about a scheme hatched in the run-up to the 2016 election to make $130,000 in hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, a pornographic film actress who claimed to have had an affair with Mr. Trump.
Mr. Cohen said that Mr. Trump, as a candidate, initiated the hush payment plan and, while president, arranged for 11 checks reimbursing the lawyer “as part of a criminal scheme to violate campaign finance laws,” a crime to which Mr. Cohen has pleaded guilty.
After news reports about the payments in February 2018, Mr. Cohen told lawmakers, the president called him to discuss what the lawyer should say publicly about the scheme. Mr. Trump told him to say that the president “was not knowledgeable of these reimbursements and he wasn’t knowledgeable of” Mr. Cohen’s actions….
