Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer and fixer for President Donald Trump, has agreed to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in February — a month before beginning to serve a three-year prison sentence for a range of crimes which include ones related to Trump.

Cohen’s planned Feb. 7 appearance in an open session of the committee is voluntary.

The article goes on to state the following:

He said it will give him the opportunity “to give a full and credible account of the events that have transpired.”

The hearing will come two-and-a-half months months after he pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in 2017 about details of an aborted Trump real-estate project in Moscow, Russia.

Shortly after the Oversight Committee’s chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., announced Cohen would testify, the House Intelligence Committee Chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said that “it will be necessary, however, for Mr. Cohen to answer questions pertaining to the Russia investigation, and we hope to schedule a closed session before our committee in the near future.”

    Is this so they can lie to the American people a little more. Or to try some way to frame the President?
