Michael Cohen arrives on Capitol Hill to give Trump testimony

Michael Cohen arrives on Capitol Hill to give Trump testimony

The implications of such an account are unheard of in modern day USA politics.

Cohen's highly anticipated appearances begin Tuesday with a closed-door interview before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

If that's not enough to get you to set the timer on your popcorn popper for 7 am Pacific tomorrow, consider this: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a member of the House Oversight Committee, could be one of the Democrats grilling Cohen about Trump tomorrow morning.

President Donald Trump's convicted former lawyer Michael Cohen is expected to accuse him of criminal conduct during a hearing on Capitol Hill. Cohen also intends to reveal information about Trump's financial statements, an anonymous source told the network.

The president's former right hand man will also describe racist remarks from Mr Trump during their private conversations.

Unsurprisingly, the Trump support team are not taking these revelations lying down.

"I'm sure there will be some questions we know the answers to, so we'll test him to see whether in fact he'll be truthful this time", Burr said.

Part of the effort is distributing a video titled "Have Fun in Prison!" that includes clips of Cohen previously vouching for Trump during the presidential campaign. "They're stealing a headline from Vietnam, from the president's behavior in Vietnam".

Whether this tactic bears any fruit is another question altogether. He is expected to share anecdotes about Trump's behavior - Daniels alleged she had an affair with Trump years ago, a claim the president denies - as well as his financial dealings, the person said.

Cohen will shed light on the payments to McDougal and Daniels, which Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler has said, if proven true, are impeachable offenses.

Cohen is also expected to bring up the specter of Russian Federation by explaining how Trump continued to ask about plans for a Trump Tower project in Moscow after the Iowa caucuses had taken place in February 2016.

Cohen's testimony has been a long time in coming.

Black people are too stupid to vote for me.

Cohen, meanwhile, plans to accuse Trump of engaging in criminal conduct while in office, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

The Senate Intelligence Committee hearing opened on Tuesday just as Trump arrived in Hanoi for his second showcase summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un. Conversely, the more left-leaning media will no doubt go to town on the revelations that are set to be unleashed.

The hearing was previously rescheduled from February 7 due to "ongoing threats" against Cohen and his family by the president, his attorney Lanny Davis said.

He is expected to take the witness stand in the Oversight Committee hearing room at 10 a.m. Wednesday in the Rayburn House Office Building.
