BuzzFeed News: Trump Told Cohen to Lie to Congress

At least two House committees plan to look into reports that President Donald Trump directed his former personal attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress.  Cohen  pleaded guilty  to that charge in late November.

According to court filings, he lied about his communication with Russians, negotiations to build a project in Moscow, and what he told "Individual 1" about the project.

"Individual 1" is presumably President Trump.  A report  first made by BuzzFeed News  says the president instructed Cohen to tell Congress those lies.  With Democrats in control of the House, the heads of the  House Intelligence  and  Judiciary committees  both pledged to investigate that accusation.

If it's true, the president's alleged actions are the textbook definition of obstruction of justice.  In response to the claims, President Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said, "Michael Cohen is a convicted criminal and a liar.

... Today's claims are just more made-up lies born of Michael Cohen's malice and desperation, in an effort to reduce his sentence." Cohen is  scheduled to testify  before a third group of lawmakers, the House Oversight Committee, on February 7.

Presuming that hearing happens as scheduled, it wouldn't be surprising if lawmakers ask about these accusations.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
