Weisselberg was named repeatedly as a witness to several events discussed by Cohen in testimony Wednesday before the House oversight committee.

Barbara Res, who worked for the Trump Organization for 18 years and served as vice president in charge of construction, said there's little Weisselberg doesn't know about Trump and his company's expenditures. In letters sent to Dillon and Passantino just hours before Cohen's testimony, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings expressed concern that the two lawyers may have provided "false information" to government ethics officials reviewing Trump's financial disclosure records.

House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff called the closed-door session with Cohen productive and said lawmakers were able to "drill down in great detail" on issues they are investigating.

Mr Cohen revealed in an explosive public testimony on Wednesday that he had intentions to write a book at some point about his experiences working for Mr Trump.

"Mr. Cohen, in November 2013, President Donald Trump testified under oath in a deposition in a civil lawsuit related to the failed real estate project, Trump International Hotel & Tower in Fort Lauderdale", Rouda began at the oversight committee hearing, which was carried live by many television outlets.

Cohen, the star witness for House and Senate investigative committees this week, pleaded guilty past year to violating federal election law by arranging hush money payments to Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal that far exceeded legal limits to campaign contributions.

That's what happened with former Playboy model Karen McDougal before Election Day in 2016, when Trump's camp feared she might talk publicly about the sexual relationship she said she had had with Trump.

If true, that would be a big turnaround from three months ago, when prosecutors told a judge that President Donald Trump's estranged ex-lawyer deserved hardly any credit for the information he'd given law enforcement. Cohen said Weisselberg helped him "figure out how to" pay off Daniels after Trump allegedly instructed him to do so. They noted that it contradicts what federal prosecutors in NY have stated in a court filing, and also what others have said about that time.

It was Sater who suggested to Cohen and Trump that one way to clear the way for Trump Tower in Moscow might be to offer Russian President Vladimir Putin a free penthouse, according to Cohen. He said Trump knew in advance that damaging emails about Democrat Hillary Clinton would be released during the 2016 campaign - a claim the president has denied - and accused Trump of lying during the 2016 campaign about the Moscow deal.

Sometimes Trump reimbursed AMI but sometimes he didn't, Cohen said - which made Pecker angry.

Another big story this week was Trump's meeting with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.

"I said, 'Why didn't he lie about that, too?'" Trump said. "I will not sit back, say nothing and allow him to do the same to the country".
