WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen will testify before three congressional committees before he enters jail on March 6, CNBC reported on Friday, citing Cohen’s lawyer Lanny Davis.

Cohen is expected to appear before the House and Senate intelligence committees and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, CNBC said.

In December, Cohen was sentenced by a federal judge to three years in prison for crimes including orchestrating hush payments to women who said they had affairs with Trump, in violation of campaign laws before the 2016 election.
