US President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has agreed to testify publicly before a Congress committee on February 7, according to an official statement.
In a statement to CNN, Cohen said on Thursday that he has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee "in furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers".
"I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired," Cohen said.
Cohen is likely to face questions about the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between senior members of President Donald Trump's campaign and a Russian lawyer as well.
Thursday's announcement comes after Cohen pleaded guilty and was sentenced in December to three years in prison on multiple charges, including two campaign finance crimes tied to illicit payments made to silence women during the presidential campaign.
