Michael Cohen to testify Monday in Trump hush-money probe

March 12, 2023

NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is scheduled to testify Monday before a Manhattan grand jury investigating hush-money payments made on the former president’s behalf , two people familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. They were not authorized to speak publicly about grand jury proceedings and did so on condition of anonymity. Prosecutors sometimes save their most important witnesses until the end stages of a grand jury investigation. Prosecutors this week invited Trump to testify before the grand jury — another sign that phase of the investigation is winding down. Cohen, now estranged from Trump, has met with prosecutors 20 times through several iterations of the hush-money probe.
