Ex-Trump lawyer back in Congress for testimony

March 07, 2019

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen was appearing again in Congress on Wednesday, a week after accusing his ex-boss of being a racist, a conman and a cheat in scathing public testimony. Cohen’s appearance before the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday is being held behind closed doors. It is the fourth and final scheduled interview with a congressional panel for Trump’s longtime lawyer and general fixer. The 52-year-old New Yorker testified in closed session before the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee last week and in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
