On Wednesday, Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer,” Michael Cohen, will testify in an open session in front of the House Oversight Committee. According to sources close to Cohen and familiar with his plans for his testimony, his accusations will be explosive, including racist language he’s heard Trump use.

Trump is sure to have a plan ready to dispute the accusations and he will no doubt take to Twitter to accuse Cohen of being a liar who only wants to get himself out of trouble. However, accusations of racism will certainly not help his criminal case, so Trump’s tantrums will once again ring hollow.

According to The New York Times:

‘Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, is planning on portraying his onetime client in starkly negative terms when he testifies Wednesday before a House committee, and on describing what he says was Mr. Trump’s use of racist language, lies about his wealth and possible criminal conduct.’

Trump has displayed his racism on several occasions, tweeting the above completely inaccurate meme from a white supremacist’s Twitter feed and calling the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville, which resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer, “very fine people.” Despite this, he and many of his supporters insist he isn’t a racist, and they are likely to buy into whatever nonsense Trump uses to refute Cohen’s testimony.

‘Mr. Trump and his allies have been preparing for days for Mr. Cohen’s testimony, which will take place over several hours while the president is in Vietnam for a summit meeting with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. The president’s aides have been anxious about the effect that the testimony might have on him.’

Cohen’s testimony will not end there. He’s also prepared to accuse Trump of crimes both before and after being elected to the White House, of covering up his plans for a Trump Tower Moscow and lying about his wealth.

‘He is prepared to describe Mr. Trump making racist statements, as well as lying or cheating in business. Last fall, Mr. Cohen told Vanity Fair that Mr. Trump frequently used racist language, telling the magazine that his former boss said during the 2016 campaign that “black people are too stupid to vote for me.”’

It’s also unlikely after being sentenced for lying to Congress that Cohen will lie to them again. So far, his testimony has checked out with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

‘The special counsel’s office has said his information was truthful and helpful in its inquiries; prosecutors in Manhattan have validated Mr. Cohen’s claims about Mr. Trump and the hush money payments in their court filings.’

Cohen’s testimony will be given while Trump is in Vietnam meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. It is sure to rock the Trump administration.
