White House Calls Michael Cohen Liar Ahead of Testimony

Omarosa warns Trump may become ‘unhinged’ over Cohen testimony

Cohen is scheduled to testify before the House of Representatives oversight committee Wednesday in a public appearance that is expected to focus on alleged misdeeds by Trump during his presidential campaign and after his election.

Cohen has linked the president to possible federal crimes, including the payment of $280,000 in hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels and another woman during the 2016 presidential race - payments Cohen has said were made "in coordination with and at the direction" of Trump.

Such testimony would mark the first time Cohen accused Trump of criminal conduct while serving as president.

The Republican National Committee is already working to undermine Michael Cohen's Congressional testimony - and plans on using a tactic they used before to achieve that end.

The financial statements were created by the president's accountant, and Cohen is expected to testify that he personally witnessed "lies, racism and cheating" by Trump.

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders said in a statement Tuesday it was "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 now scheduled to appear before Congress tomorrow and it's set to be the first time he accuses Trump of committing a crime while in office.

According to the report, Cohen is planning on addressing a story that surfaced via Buzzfeed that said Trump ordered him to lie to Congress about Russian Federation and alleged business deals during the 2016 presidential campaign. Trump will not be in Washington while his former lawyer testifies, but will instead be in Vietnam for his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Cohen, sentenced to three years, is expected to report to prison in May.

Cohen's testimony has been a long time in coming. He pleaded guilty to several crimes, including tax evasion, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.

Cohen is expected to come to the congressional hearing with documents and other visual aids to support his contentions.

It's Cohen's first appearance before Congress since being charged for lying to the Senate and House Intelligence Committees in 2017. He is also slated to appear before two House panels later this week.

Cohen once said he would "take a bullet" for Trump, but he has since turned against his former boss.

Cohen's dozen years as a trusted Trump lieutenant gave him access to highly sensitive details of the former real estate magnate's business and personal affairs.

The hearing will also examine whether Trump has complied with campaign finance and tax laws, his ties to the Trump International Hotel in Washington and "potential and actual conflicts of interest".
