JUST IN- Trump’s former lawyer testifies at US Congress, Calls him ‘racist conman’


US President, Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer, Michael Cohen, thas branded Donald Trump a “racist”, “conman” and “cheat” in a congressional hearing

Cohen is speaking before the House of Representatives Oversight Committee – his only public hearing out of three on Capitol Hill this week

He claims Mr Trump knew of a Wikileaks hack of Democratic emails and directed hush payments to mistresses and lies about a Moscow property deal

Cohen also said Mr Trump directed plans for a Moscow skyscraper even during his White House campaign.

Mr Trump and Republicans are questioning Cohen’s credibility, painting him as a liar who will do anything to reduce his prison time

The US president took time out from preparing to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Wednesday to lash out in a tweet at his former fixer.

Cohen, 52, will start a three-year prison term in May for the campaign finance violation of paying hush money to one of Mr Trump’s alleged mistresses, tax evasion and lying to Congress.
