Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal attorney, will testify before the House Oversight Committee on Feb. 7, committee chair Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) announced Thursday. In a Thursday statement, Cohen said he'd accepted Cummings' invitation "to cooperate and provide the American people with answers," and pledged to "give a full and credible account" of his time working for Trump. Cohen has been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and upon reaching a plea deal with federal prosecutors last month said that he would "state publicly all he knows about Mr. Trump" once Mueller "completes his investigation and issues his final report," suggesting the Mueller probe might be concluding soon.
