Agency News

Washington, March 1 : President Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen has said that he will return to Congress on March 6 for another round of questioning with lawmakers.

While speaking to media persons on Thursday, Cohen said, "I'm committed to telling the truth, and I will be back on March 6 to finish up, there's more to discuss". On Wednesday, Cohen before a congressional committee hearing provided details of Trump’s role in hush money payments to women that may have violated campaign finance laws, CNBC reported.

He however said that he had no direct evidence to confirm any collusion between Trump and the Russian government during the 2016 election. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for financial crimes that include tax fraud and hush-money payments to two women Trump allegedly had affairs with in violation of campaign finance laws, as well as lying to Congress.

The US president’s former lawyer remains out of prison to continue cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Trump-Moscow collusion during the 2016 US presidential election, which has been denied by both parties on numerous occasions.

Cohen said during his testimony that he has been interviewed by the special counsel’s office seven times. (UNI )
