Michael Cohen Testifies Against Trump in Hush Money Case

Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney and fixer for former President Donald Trump, testified against him in a hush money case on Wednesday. Cohen is expected to bolster the prosecutors' case that Trump falsified business records to pay off Stormy Daniels, the adult film star with whom he is alleged to have had an affair.

Cohen testified that Trump directed him to make a $130,000 payment to Daniels in October 2016, shortly before the presidential election. Cohen said he used his own money to make the payment, and that Trump reimbursed him with a monthly retainer.

Cohen said he lied to Congress about the payment because he was "following the orders of the president." He also said that Trump inflated his assets and income on financial statements in order to obtain favorable loan terms.

Cohen's testimony is a significant development in the hush money case. He is the first witness to testify that Trump directed him to make the payment to Daniels. Cohen's testimony also provides evidence that Trump falsified business records.

The hush money case is one of several legal challenges facing Trump. He is also being investigated for his role in the January 6th Capitol riot and for his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the hush money case. He has also denied any involvement in the January 6th Capitol riot and has said that the 2020 election was stolen from him.

The hush money case is scheduled to go to trial in October. Trump is expected to testify in his own defense.
