Ex-Trump 'fixer' Cohen to testify to Congress

Before heading to prison in March, Michael Cohen will make a very high-profile pit stop: on Capitol Hill.

President Trump's former attorney - who implicated Trump in a scheme to pay illegal hush money to two women - will testify publicly in front of the House Oversight Committee on February 7, the committee announced Thursday.

Cohen in a statement said he looks forward to giving a, 'full and credible account of the events which have transpired.'

The hearing may be Democrats' first salvo in what they've pledged will be a wide-ranging effort to investigate alleged misdeeds by Trump and those in his circle.

Cohen, as Trump's former 'fixer,' told a court he acted at Trump's direction during the 2016 campaign when he bought the silence of porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom claim to have had affairs with Trump years ago.

He also previously admitted to lying to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

Cohen at his sentencing hearing in December said that his 'blind loyalty' to the Trump led him to cover up the President's 'dirty deeds.'

Trump denies the alleged affairs and claims the payoffs didn't violate campaign finance laws, and on Thursday shurgged off the news of Cohen's upcoming testimony.

[SOUNDBITE PRESIDENT TRUMP] 'I'm not worried about it at all, no.'

Cohen is also cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, something Trump has also vehemently denied.

Cohen was sentenced to 3 years in prison.
