President Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen said Thursday he’ll testify to a House committee next month about his work for Donald Trump. Cohen has been sentenced to three years in prison for tax evasion, bank fraud, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress, after admitting he broke federal campaign finance laws by paying hush money to two women during the 2016 presidential campaign “in coordination with and at the direction” of President Trump. This comes as The Washington Post reports the White House has added 17 new lawyers to its legal team in recent weeks, as President Trump and his inner circle brace for Robert Mueller to complete his investigation.
