Donald Trump Allegedly Furious, Let Out Expletives As Michael Cohen Is Set to Testify Before House Next Month

Donald Trump is allegedly furious after learning that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is set to testify before the House committee in February. The hearing would be televised, and the lawyer would be questioned about the POTUS’ alleged ties to Russia and other anomalies.

It was said that Donald Trump’s anger was very evident when he threw an object in and hurled expletives before storming out of the room. This alleged violent outburst was revealed by Jon Cooper, the chairman of the Democratic Coalition, on Jan. 10, via Twitter.

“According to one source, when Donald Trump was told Michael Cohen agreed to testify in public before Congress, he totally lost it,” he tweeted. “Trump threw an object (a pen?) on the floor, stormed out of the room, and dropped the F-bomb (and other expletives) repeatedly before shocked aides.”

In any case, Michael Cohen’s testimonies could cause irreparable damage to Donald Trump and his administration. The public hearing will likely open the POTUS’ personal life as well as his businesses to some degree.

Cohen is expected to be questioned about Donald Trump’s real estate deal with Russia and his other conflicts of interest that the federal prosecutors have been trying to uncover for months. The lawyer is testifying on Feb. 7 and, afterward, he will begin his three-year jail term for covering up the president’s dirty deeds that include paying hush-money to silence the women who had affairs with Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, three Democrats had warned Donald Trump and told him not to intimidate Michael Cohen. They said that the president could not "discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure" his former lawyer prior to the hearing next month.

"Our nation’s laws prohibit efforts to discourage, intimidate, or otherwise pressure a witness not to provide testimony to Congress,” Democratic chairmen Elijah Cummings, Adam Schiff, and Jerrold Nadler said in a joint statement. “The President should make no statement or take any action to obstruct Congress’ independent oversight and investigative efforts, including by seeking to discourage any witness from testifying in response to a duly authorized request from Congress."
