Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer and fixer, plans to accuse Trump of engaging in criminal conduct while in office, The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday morning. Cohen paid Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 in October 2016 during the final days of the presidential race. Lawmakers also are expected to ask Cohen, who was closely involved in Trump's financial affairs, whether any foreign actors - Russian or otherwise - may have leverage over the president, his children and close associates, or their business interests. Cohen, scheduled to report to prison in May, has already said he briefed Trump on the project in June 2016.
Wednesday's hearing will happen at roughly the same time Trump is set to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Vietnam. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to describe Cohen's expected testimony.
The news comes as Cohen is now in Washington, D.C. for three hearings before Congressional committees.

Republicans have been blasting away at Cohen's credibility, offering reminders that he pleaded guilty a year ago to lying to Congress.
In a key aspect of his case - the illegal use of campaign funds for hush payments ahead of the 2016 election - Cohen told prosecutors that he was ordered to do so by Trump himself, directly implicating the president in a crime.
Cohen is scheduled to begin serving a three-year sentence on May 6 for crimes including campaign finance violations stemming from the hush money payments to Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
The development follows Cohen's conviction on nine charges, including campaign finance violations and making false statements to members of Congress, according to court documents.
