Donald Trump's former attorney set to testify to say Trump lied about a number of matters
Michael Cohen has said that he is also prepared to testify that Trump made a number of racist comments while President.
Donald Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen is said to be prepared to testify that Trump was aware of his advisor Roger Stone's efforts to reach out to WikiLeaks in advance of its release of damaging information about Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
According to a copy of his public testimony, obtained by CNN, Cohen made a number of damning allegations about the US President.
He accuses Trump of making racist comments about African-Americans and participating during his presidency in an illegal hush-money scheme to keep his alleged extra-marital affairs quiet.
There is also a revelation that Trump is said to have faked a medical condition to avoid serving time during The Vietnam War.
When asked to comment about Cohen's potential testimony, the White House press secretary Sarah Sanders replied:
"Disgraced felon Michael Cohen is going to prison for lying to Congress and making other false statements. Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same. It's laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies."
This was a reference to Cohen's recent legal difficulties, which came off the back of him being found guilty of buying the silence of two women who said they had affairs with Trump.
