Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen, who was convicted last year on eight felony counts and sentenced to three years in prison in connection with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, testified before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday during an open session of Congress. The Resist Report panelists discuss the potential effects of his testimony. Footage of the testimony can be found below.
