On Thursday, CNN's Jake Tapper warned that a day of "reckoning" is coming to President Donald Trump.


While Trump was visiting the US-Mexico border, his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen confirmed that he would publically testify in front of the House Oversight Committee on February 7th.

"I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired," Cohen said in a statement.

"Mark down February 7th, what could be a day of reckoning for President Trump," Tapper said at the opening of his show.

"The first move by House Democrats that is certain to draw the ire of President Trump. Cohen has agreed to testify publicly before the House Oversight Committee, cooperating with Robert Mueller over crimes that he says were directed by Donald Trump," Tapper said.

He added, "President Trump has denied the charges. He will almost certainly be talking about the hush payments to women but there will be a lot of questions."

"This will be a day that President Trump is going to hate," Tapper said.
