Michael Cohen, former fixer for President Donald Trump, testified to Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) in a public House hearing Wednesday that he knew about other crimes implicating the president, but he was not at liberty to discuss.
Krishnamoorthi was inquiring about the last communications between Cohen and the president, which Cohen said had occurred a few months after the FBI raided his home.
“What did he or his agent communicate to you,” asked Krishnamoorthi.
“Unfortunately, this topic is actually something that’s being investigated right now by the Southern District of New York,” Cohen replied. “And I’ve been asked by them not to discuss and not to talk about these issues.”
“Is there any other wrongdoing or illegal act that you are aware of regarding Donald Trump that we haven’t yet discussed today?” asked Krishnamoorthi
“Yes,” Cohen responded. “And again, those are part of the investigation that’s currently being looked at by the Southern District of New York.”

‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
