President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen will soon give his first public testimony to the House Oversight and Reform Committee in Congress.
On Wednesday, CNN’s Justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz said that Trump’s most “damning” day is near.
“We know from court documents that Michael Cohen lied to Congress, and we’re expecting that he will, set the record straight here. How damning might this be?” CNN host Brianna Keilar asked.
“This perhaps could be the most damning day for the president and this White House come February 7th. Michael Cohen stood before a court and swore to tell the truth and said that the president directed him to make these payments,” he said.
“These payments could be the most problematic part of this hearing for the president,” Prokupecz said.

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.
"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."
The Italian job: 2026 Winter Olympics will be staged in Milan/Cortina d’Ampezzo
Milan/Cortina d'Ampezzo was named as hosts of the 2026 Winter Olympics on Monday, beating off a bid from Stockholm/Are in Sweden and giving Italy the showpiece event for the third time.
The 2026 Olympics will run from February 6-22, said the International Olympic Committee.
Italy has twice previously hosted the Winter Games -- in 1956 in Cortina d'Ampezzo and 2006 in Turin. Sweden has only hosted the Summer Olympics, in 1912 in Stockholm.
IOC members gave the Italian bid the nod by 47 votes to 34.
"It's an historic day and a victory of all Italians," said Italy's interior minister Matteo Salvini.
