Cohen may be brought from prison to testify

Michael Cohen

WASHINGTON (AP) – The chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee says President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer could be brought from prison to testify before Congress if necessary.

Rep. Elijah Cummings says the logistics of Michael Cohen’s testimony are still being worked out. But the Maryland Democrat says Congress can “bring him in” after Cohen begins his prison sentence.

His comments come hours after Cohen announced he was postponing his testimony, which was scheduled for Feb. 7.

The Democratic-led committee is investigating hush-money payments during the 2016 campaign to silence women who claimed to have had sex with Trump. Trump has denied the accusation.

Cohen starts a three-year prison sentence March 6. He pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations related to the payments. He’s also pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump real estate project in Moscow.
