Trump lawyer will testify over Russian election meddling

Trump lawyer will testify over Russian election meddling”

California Democrat Dianne Feinstein isn't publicly committing to seeking a fifth Senate term in 2018.

Journalist David Corn of Mother Jones magazine said on Sunday that observers should expect President Donald Trump's aide Michael Cohen to be less-than-honest in his testimony on Tuesday to the Senate Intelligence Committee. "I know that for sure".

Cohen said previously he had received a subpoena from at least one of the congressional committees investigating what US intelligence has determined were Russia's efforts to influence the election on Trump's behalf, and whether Trump associates colluded with Russian Federation.

It is expected that the committee staff will interview Cohen, a source familiar with the matter told CNN.

Claims of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign have plagued the president's early months in office.

Trump Jr. arranged the meeting, which was also attended by then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, after being promised dirt on his father's opponent, Hillary Clinton.

"So I think people have to be patient". Cohen confirmed that he would testify to the committee on Tuesday and said he did not know whether it would be in a closed session or public.

She also affirmed that the committee is "likely" to subpoena Manafort "if he refuses to come before the committee".

Feinstein stressed on Sunday that while the investigations are moving forward, they could take "a long time" to complete.
