President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is expected to say the following (and other things) before the House Oversight Committee today in an open hearing. His testimony might put pressure on the Department of Justice to reevaluate its arbitrary internal policy which prohibits the criminal prosecution of a sitting U.S. president.
- That Trump knew of Roger Stone’s communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange regarding hacked Democratic emails
- That Trump directed negotiations with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign to build a tower in Moscow
- That Trump illegally reimbursed Cohen for hush money payments to Stormy Daniels after he became president
