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.

Fox legal analyst: Ukraine scandal is ‘far more serious’ than what Mueller dug up on Trump
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano on Monday told Fox Business host David Asman that President Donald Trump's now-infamous phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is a serious case of corruption that cannot be ignored.
Although Asman tried to make the story about the actions of former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Napolitano said that what Trump has done appears far worse than anything the former vice president did.
"This is the most serious charge against the president, far more serious than what Bob Mueller dug or dragged up against him," Napolitano said. "If there was a quid pro quo -- it does appear as though a quarter of a billion dollars in defensive weaponry was held back for a period of time while these... conversations were going on between the presidents."

"People are here in front, making it clear—#ExxonKnew about climate impacts and still put profit over people," tweeted 350.org, which organized the protest alongside watchdog group Corporate Accountability.
