Cohen, who pleaded guilty last year to lying to Congress about the Moscow real estate project and reports to prison soon for a three-year sentence, gave harsh testimony about Trump on Wednesday. Trump said in morning tweets, in which he accused Cohen of committing perjury during a congressional hearing and called on Congress to demand the book manuscript, which Trump claimed was recently finished.
Well, a Democratic aide familiar with committee chairman and Rep. Adam Schiff's (D-Calif.) plans tells us that the answer to this question lies in points three and four of the document Schiff recently released that details questions he hopes to answer with his planned Russian Federation investigation.
President Donald Trump's former lawyer has completed three days of testimony on Capitol Hill - and is coming back for another day next week - after publicly branding his former boss a racist and a con man who lied about business dealings in Russian Federation and directed him to hide extramarital relationships.
The article noted, in a reference to the president's elder daughter, that a "top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to "express my concern" that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen 'when this is audited.'" There's more about the behind-the-scenes machinations of the Trump inaugural committee in "New Evidence Emerges of Possible Wrongdoing by Trump Inaugural Committee". Trump has repeatedly denied the allegation, as has the Kremlin. Are you telling us, Mr. Cohen, that the president directed transactions in conspiracy with Allen Weisselberg and his son, Donald Trump Jr....as part of a criminal conspiracy of financial fraud, is that your testimony today?
With prison looming, Michael Cohen now says he is in "constant contact" with federal prosecutors in NY, providing them with information in an attempt to get his sentence reduced. It has also subpoenaed the committee that raised $107 million to stage Trump's inaugural events.

The president described his former attorney and fixer's descriptions of him as "incorrect" and said the "fake hearing" was "shameful".

The goal settled a fairly comprehensive 4-1 aggregate win for Barca, who will now face either Valencia or Real Betis in the final. The win was also historic as Barca became the first team in Copa history to reach six consecutive finals.
Michael Cohen may act like he is on a path of total redemption - but his latest testimony before Congress proves that he just can't stop deceiving the American people.
"The financial guy, the guy Trump has to turn to every time he wants to spend more than 50 bucks, that's the guy who's best placed for an investigator to turn to", Cotter, who has extensive experience prosecuting organized crime, told INSIDER. "Yes, but I'm not really sure I can answer that question in terms of collusion", he said, adding, however, that he had his "suspicions". Testifying before the House Oversight Committee, Cohen levelled a broad attack against the president's character.
Weisselberg has been a Trump ally for decades, dating back to when the president's father, Fred Trump, was calling the shots. Cohen has said that he discussed the proposed development with Trump and his family members well into the 2016 presidential campaign.
Cohen's depiction of himself as a credible witness was complicated by his own admitted criminal conduct and past lies - including false statements he made previously to Congress. He must have forgotten about his book when he testified. Gerald E. Connolly of Virginia said on CNN Thursday of bringing in Trump's children for public interviews. "Mr Trump would often say this campaign was going to be the "greatest infomercial in political history".
Sater, who worked with Cohen on the project while Trump was running for president, has said he and Cohen at one point talked about giving a 50 million US dollars penthouse to Russian President Vladimir Putin as a way to justify raising the prices of other units in the envisioned tower.
