Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen has released his prepared testimony ahead of his appearance before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.
Michael Cohen will say:
“I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr. Trump’s illicit acts
rather than listening to my own conscience.”
” I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is.
He is a racist.
He is a conman.
He is a cheat.”
“He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking
with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of Democratic National
Cohen will also submit:
• A copy of a check Mr. Trump wrote from his personal bank
account – after he became president – to reimburse me for the
hush money payments I made to cover up his affair with an adult
film star and prevent damage to his campaign;
• Copies of financial statements for 2011 – 2013 that he gave to
such institutions as Deutsche Bank;
• A copy of an article with Mr. Trump’s handwriting on it that
reported on the auction of a portrait of himself – he arranged for
the bidder ahead of time and then reimbursed the bidder from the
account of his non-profit charitable foundation, with the picture
now hanging in one of his country clubs; and
• Copies of letters I wrote at Mr. Trump’s direction that threatened
his high school, colleges, and the College Board not to release his
grades or SAT scores.
Cohen will also say that Trump knew and directed the Trump Moscow negotiations during the campaign and lied about it.
“He lied about it because he never expected to win the election,” Cohen said.
