Cohen to Testify Trump's a 'Racist,' 'Con Man' and 'Cheat'

President Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen is planning to call the president a "con man," a "cheat" and a "racist." That's all according to a copy of his prepared testimony obtained by multiple news outlets.  Cohen is set to testify publicly before a House committee for the first time Wednesday.

Along with his testimony, Cohen will provide the committee with several documents, including a copy of the $130,000 wire transfer he sent to adult film star Stormy Daniels.  Cohen paid Daniels out of his own pocket to maintain her silence about her alleged affair with President Trump in 2006.

The president later admitted that  Cohen was reimbursed  that money.  Cohen intends to tell the House committee that President Trump knew that Roger Stone was talking with WikiLeaks' Julian Assange about the release of Democratic National Committee emails.  Cohen also plans to say "I am ashamed of my own failings, and I publicly accepted responsibility for them by pleading guilty."  Cohen testified in a closed-door hearing on Tuesday, where he apologized to a Senate committee for lying to Congress.

He was sentenced to three years in prison last year for several crimes, including lying to Congress.

He'll start that sentence in May.  Cohen's Wednesday testimony is already facing scrutiny since he's been untruthful before.

His statements could also change during the actual hearing.  Cohen will be back for a third round of testimony behind closed doors on Thursday.
