(Washington, DC) -- Just as the President lands in Vietnam, the White House is bracing for congressional testimony from Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney and so-called fixer. In a statement today, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called Cohen a disgraced felon and convicted liar who is going to jail. Sanders said lawmakers should consider his testimony laughable. Cohen is behind closed doors with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee today. He testifies in an open hearing of the House Oversight Committee tomorrow. Cohen is confronting prison time after pleading guilty to lying to Congress, tax fraud, banking fraud and campaign finance violations.
The campaign finance charges involved Cohen's hush money payments to two women before the 2016 presidential election. The women have alleged having affairs with Trump, accusations that the President has denied.
