Trump-Russia

Trump attorney says he'll testify if subpoenaed by Congress

Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal attorney and a person of interest in the investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, told NBC News Tuesday that he will testify if issued a subpoena.

Cohen had earlier denied requests by the House and Senate intelligence committees to turn over information, saying he "declined the invitation to participate, as the request was poorly phrased, overly broad, and not capable of being answered." Speaking to NBC News, Cohen said a letter was sent to him asking for a list of his contacts in Russia and emails and other communications, but no subpoena. "I have nothing to hide," he said. "I will make myself available and I am more than happy and willing to testify, but they have to be specific." A congressional aide told ABC News the letter Cohen received was the same one sent to former members of the Trump campaign, including Carter Page, Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn.
