Elijah Cummings: House Oversight Cmte. To Seek Interviews With Ivanka, Trump Jr.


The House Oversight Committee will interview several individuals mentioned during Michael Cohen's Wednesday testimony.

According to Axios, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said that the panel will interview many of those mentioned by Michael Cohen during his testimony on Wednesday. Included in that list is Don Jr. and Ivanka, as well as Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg.

The interviews were inspired by Cohen's testimony stating he believes both Trump Jr. and Weisselberg signed a $35,000 check to reimburse him for a payment he made to Stormy Daniels. Cohen provided the check to the committee. More, although Trump Jr. said that he was only “peripherally aware” of the Trump Tower Moscow, Cohen said that he briefed Trump Jr. and Ivanka about the project approximately 10 times.

Cummings said that the committee would “take a look at” the people mentioned by Cohen and that they have “a good chance of hearing from us- at least an interview.”

Cohen also mentioned former Trump advisor Roger Stone, former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s assistant Rhona Graff, and personal Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow.
