    Michael Cohen Will Testify Before Congress

    President Trump’s former personal attorney will appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee early next month. Cohen — who in March will begin serving three years in prison for financial crimes, lying to Congress and violating campaign finance laws — said he welcomed giving “a full and credible account” as part of his commitment to “provide the American people with answers.” 

    What might those answers reveal? We’ll have to wait until Feb. 7 to find out. But the first major move by Democrats to scrutinize the president’s dealings with Russia will likely shed light on details, including Trump’s alleged ties to Russia and other unsavory aspects of his personal life, about which we’ve long only speculated.
