President Donald Trump may soon have more stinging problems that the border wall after his former lawyer Michael Cohen agreed to testify in Congress next month.
Lawmakers made the announcement Thursday, in what is a potential new threat to the Republican president as the Russia collusion investigation increasingly menaces his White House.
The newly Democrat-controlled House Oversight Committee said Thursday that Cohen will testify in a public session on February 7.
“I thank Michael Cohen for agreeing to testify before the Oversight Committee voluntarily,” Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings said in a statement.
Trump had described Cohen as a ‘rat’ after he was sentenced to three years in prison last year and agreed to cooperate with the prosecution.
