Michael Cohen, Donald Trumpís former lawyer, plans on Wednesday for the first time to publicly accuse the president of engagingówhile in officeóin criminal conduct related to a hush-money payment to a porn star, a person familiar with his expected testimony before Congress said.

Appearing before the House Oversight Committee, Mr. Cohen also plans to make public some of Mr. Trumpís private financial statements and allege that Mr. Trump at times inflated or deflated his net worth for business and personal purposes, including avoiding paying property taxes, the person said.

1. I'm going to say a prayer tonight that I am not disappointed in what Cohen has to say.

I pray his testimony is the beginning of the end for Donald.

2. CNN just got Cohen's opening statement, it's about 20 pages, and it's DAMNING for trump!

Don Lemon and his people are reviewing it live on CNN right now. He has submitted many documents, including the CHECKS signed by trump, totaling $130,000, signed AFTER he became president, as reimbursement for the Stormy Daniels payoff.

Whoa, tomorrow is going to be an amazing day, it may just end trump's presidency - even republicans can't pooh pooh this stuff. This is WAY beyond John Dean's 1973 testimony.

Stunning.
