President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, will testify publicly before a House committee next month in a hearing that could serve as the opening salvo of a promised Democratic effort to scrutinize Trump, his conflicts of interest and his ties to Russia.The House Oversight and Reform Committee announced Thursday that Cohen will appear before that panel Feb. 7, a little more than a month after the Democrats took the House majority.Cohen has pleaded guilty in both investigations and was sentenced last month to three years in prison.The panel's top Republican, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, said Cohen's appearance shows that Cummings is using the "committee as a venue for political theater rather than legitimate oversight," noting how Cohen has admitted knowingly lying to Congress and is a witness in ongoing investigations.The oversight hearing may not be Cohen's only appearance.Cohen testified before the House intelligence panel in a closed-door hearing in 2017, before his role in the federal investigations was fully known and when Republicans controlled the committee. The Senate intelligence committee has also asked Cohen to return.
