Is Michael Cohen the New John Dean? Who Is John Dean, Anyway?

Home Elections  Michael Cohen Ready To Reveal The Dirty And Disgusting Secrets Of Donald Trump By Farron Cousins

The Republican National Committee is telling Michael Cohen, its former deputy finance director who has turned on President Trump, to "have fun in prison" as part of a coordinated war room effort to push back against his expected anti-Trump public testimony on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

Such testimony would mark the first time Cohen accused Trump of criminal conduct while serving as president.

Lawmakers are also girding to ask him questions about a planned Moscow tower project that he pursued well into the 2016 presidential campaign.

Cohen is additionally expected to explain his motivation for previously lying to Congress in 2017 in order to protect Trump, the sources told ABC News.

Sanders said it's "laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies". He's scheduled to appear before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday - which will be televised - and on Thursday he'll be behind closed doors before the House Intelligence Committee.

At the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, Cohen is expected to focus on his "behind the scenes" accounts of working for 10 years for Trump and make public some of Trump's financial statements that claim he manipulated his net worth to avoid paying personal property taxes, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post. He is scheduled to meet Tuesday with the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Cohen's highly anticipated appearances begin Tuesday with a closed-door interview before the Senate Intelligence Committee. She also said we can expect more of the same from him this week as he go before Congress.

Matt Gartz threatened to reveal Michael Cohen secret girlfriends ahead of his testimony to Congress. But the two other panels are expected to do so in closed session.

The accusations are related to the hush-money payment Cohen facilitated to the porn star Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about an affair she says she had with Trump, which Trump denies.

The development follows Cohen's conviction on nine charges, including campaign finance violations and making false statements to members of Congress, according to court documents.

Many are now comparing Cohen's big moment to the 1973 House testimony of John Dean against former President Richard Nixon, who resigned about a year later.

We will update you on Cohen's address tomorrow.

At his December sentencing Cohen, a former Trump loyalist, blamed his misdeeds on "a blind loyalty" to Mr Trump.

Cohen's week of interviews come as House Democrats launch multiple investigations into Trump's ties to Russian Federation and conflict-of-interest issues within the administration.
