Michael Cohen To Publicly Testify Before Congress In February
The hearing is scheduled for Feb. 7.
President Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen will testify publicly before Congress next month.
According to a press release, Cohen voluntarily agreed to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. The hearing is scheduled for Feb. 7.
Cohen said in a statement he "look(s) forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired."
This will be Cohen's first time publicly testifying at a hearing chaired by Democrats. Last year, he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a real estate project to build a Trump Tower in Russia. He also pleaded guilty to eight other charges, including tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations. In December, a federal judge sentenced Cohen to 36 months in prison.
When he was asked about Cohen's plan to testify, President Trump said he's "not worried about it at all."
