Trump late Sunday complained about "Presidential Harassment" in investigations being led by "crazed Democrats" and of the "corrupt Mainstream Media that any president has ever had to endure" following three days of testimony by his former personal lawyer related to the Russian Federation investigation, campaign finance law violations and hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels. "And this is why I agreed to appear before you today".
In response to questioning from another lawmaker, Cohen said that he had seen Trump's tax returns, but had not gone through them. This is Exhibit 4 to my testimony. However, now Cohen claims that Trump knew about the payments and then reimbursed him 35,000 dollar payment, while he was the president. I did that, too - without bothering to consider whether that was improper, much less whether it was the right thing to do or how it would impact me, my family, or the public. "As Exhibit 5 to my testimony shows, I am providing a copy of a $35,000 check that President Trump personally signed from his personal bank account..." Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) asked Cohen who could shed light on Trump's history of gaming assets for both insurance and tax avoidance goal.
Cohen, they said in a scathing court filing, did not deserve to be called a "cooperating witness", even after he admitted to a host of financial crimes and implicated the president in coordinating payments to two women who were threatening to talk publicly about their affairs with Trump.
"To be clear: Mr. Trump knew of and directed the Trump Moscow negotiations throughout the campaign and lied about it", he explained.

A United Nations report published a year ago noted that Hamza bin Laden "continued to emerge as a leadership figure in al-Qaida". Earlier, USA announced to offer $1 million reward on the provision of information related to Hamza bin Laden .
Several of the committee's members have previously voiced an interest in hearing again from Trump, Jr., as well as from witnesses Republicans declined to call previous year, including George Papadopoulos, Trump campaign official Rick Gates, and lobbyist George Nader. "So it's to really find out if this president is financially compromised by the Russians". In the wake of the testimony of Trump's former fixer, there's good news for fans on both fronts: on Thursday, reports emerged that two House committees are pursuing interviews with key figures in the president's business and campaign, including Ivanka Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Felix Sater, and Trump Organization executive Allen Weisselberg. "He also lied about it because he stood to make hundreds of millions of dollars on the Moscow real estate project". The hostile Cohen testimony, given by a liar to reduce his prison time, proved no Collusion'. Trump stated otherwise in earlier statements.
With more attention turning to President Trump's business and the legal problems it could cause him, Weisselberg will be at the center of the story.
Some may not be too surprised that Trump is a racist. Days before the 2016 election, Cohen said Trump instructed him to pay Daniels $130,000 to keep her from talking about it.
Among the instances they cite was Cohen's contention that he did not seek employment in the White House after Trump was elected. "But what we're about is just making sure that government is accountable, and this administration, this branch is accountable", the House Oversight and Reform Committee chairman said.
