Democrats to investigate claims Trump ‘told his former lawyer to lie to Congress’

The United States House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees are to investigate whether President Trump told his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress under oath. It comes after Buzzfeed News reported claims that the President instructed Mr Cohen to lie about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Russia. The President’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, says the allegation is “categorically false”.
