President Trump’s ex Layer and fixer Michael Cohen has agreed to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in February — a month before beginning to serve a three-year prison sentence for a range of crimes which include ones related to Trump.
Cohen’s planned Feb. 7 appearance in an open session of the committee is voluntary.
He said it will give him the opportunity “to give a full and credible account of the events that have transpired.”
Cohen admitted facilitating payments to two women, porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, in exchange for their silence about alleged affairs with Trump.
He also admitted lying to Congress about the extent of Trump’s involvement in an aborted plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
When asked about Cohen’s planned testimony, Trump said, “I’m not worried about it at all.”
The hearing will come 2½ months after Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about details of an aborted Trump real estate project in Moscow.
