Well, now that former Donald Trump joining Michael Cohen has agreed to testify publicly before a house committee next month. Are we learning anything more about what he might say we go live to Washington DC in Washington Post reporter Matt's Pataki for the latest good afternoon. Matt how are you? Hey, I'm good. Thank you for having me. Hey, you bet. Do we have any more information about the hearing by the oversight and government reform committee next month? Well, the one piece of information we have is somewhat. Disappointing were kidding hints that he might not really be able to talk about Russia related stuff that chairman of that committee seems to be still working it out with Muller about what Cohen can testify about that won't sort of step on Muller's toes. And then the chairman of the Intel committee who served the Russia proper investigation is in his committee. He said look that stuff is going to have to be behind closed doors. So I still think it will be a very exciting hearing. I mean, Michael Cohen was the president's former lawyer talked lovingly about being the president fixer. He knows where all the bodies are buried, but he's probably not going to be able to say a lot on Russia at least from the indications. We're getting so far today and given that what does the house wanna hear from him? I mean is this lane groundwork for possible impeachment or what? Well, I think what they probably want to hear from him about these payments to women to sort of keep quiet about alleged affairs with the president during the campaign that led to Michael Cohen pleading guilty to a criminal charge, and and a combined with some other criminal charges. He ultimately ended up being sentenced to three years in prison who actually report to prison a month after his testimony. I lawmakers want to get to the bottom of that. We've heard a lot about that in court. But certainly there are still unanswered questions about sort of the specific knowledge than Michael Cohen says Donald Trump had about those payments to specific directions that were given. And I think they just want to, you know, want to know exactly what culpability the president has here. And what sort of the Democrats is again to game of what political nightmare. They can cause for the president. With that information. We're talking with Matt's up Petoskey from the Washington Post. Matt what is Cohen half to gain from testifying Cohen wants to tell his story. And you could see that after he was sentenced. He went on George Stephanopoulos. This show or went on on the morning and said of laid out some more details about the campaign finance stuff, and repeated what he had said it his sensing that he was sort of six things for Trump. He was covering up Trump's dirty deeds. I think this is a story that he wants to talent he probably sees congress as a good venue to tell it this way, he sort of can't be accused of just sort of doing a media tour where he can lie all he wants without consequence. He'll be under oath again when he testifies before congress, and that will lend some credibility to his story, which he clearly really wants to share. He talked at length at his sentencing hearing he didn't need to do that did the mediator afterwards. As I mentioned, he just wants to sort of get his story out there.

My fellow Americans in his first ever primetime address from the Oval Office, President Trump appealing directly to the American people for his border wall. But stopping short of declaring a national emergency to pay for it. The federal government. Remains shut down for one reason and one reason only because Democrats will not fund border security in his ten minutes speech riddled with factual inaccuracies. The president argued there is a crisis at the southern border. This is a humanitarian crisis a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul every day customs and border patrol agents encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country. But in reality, total apprehensions of illegal crossers have actually plunged in recent decades. So they have ticked up over the past year. They're still at historic lows. The president also pointed to drug trafficking to make his case. Our southern borders a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth heroin cocaine. Every week. Three hundred of our citizens are killed by heroin alone. Ninety percent of which floods across from our southern border. Yes. Ninety percent of heroin does come across the southern border. But almost all of it comes through legal ports of entry and a border wall would not stop it. And about that campaign promise, I guarantee you folks that Mexico is going to pay for the wall. The wall will also be paid for indirectly by the great new trade deal. We have made with Mexico, but that is false. There is no evidence. The president's revised NAFTA agreement would do that. And congress still needs to approve it. How much more American blood must be shed before? Congress does its job. It seems his fight with congress and the shutdown will end no time soon but hearing side by side at the same podium democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer demanded equal airtime for their own.

No, we still don't know the answer that question, and we probably won't know look as a special counsel is pretty tight lipped in hill. They file there. Memorandum detailing what they say his crime than lies are the post and others are speculating Rachel that Muller might be ready to drop a bombshell any speculation that you're hearing. Sure, I mean, I think that comes mostly just from the the very tough language, they used in this update, the fact that they're ready to move to sentencing immediately that they have no interest in further negotiations with Manafort, the fact that they've already talked to the president that all suggests that they're ready to really lay out some incriminating details, you know, the fact that they accused him of of breaking the law, not just being a visa or not telling the whole truth, but flat out lying suggest that they can prove that the same way they proved that he obstructed Justice by getting into his phone records. And he goes throat in bed by showing the track changes he made a Microsoft Word in the past. They've you know, showing that. Really in detail were able to keep tabs on what he was doing wrong and presumably that will be the case against although he says, of course, that he didn't lie. So it'll be interesting to see how that plays out prosecutions has Manafort should lose any leniency in sentencing before let you go ratio. When will we we know that when will he know his fate. We don't know because they haven't set a date yet sentencing is in February in Virginia. And it'll be interesting to see whether that judge is harsher on him. Because of what's going on in DC? But it's the judge in DC still has to schedule his sentencing, and we don't know he could get up to ten years in DC. Obviously. Now, prosecutors are indicating they're not going. For any leniency, and we'll we'll have to wait and see. But he could will get a sentence that would put him in prison for the rest of his naturally.
