"Washington (CNN)The congressional testimony of President Donald Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen is already set to be one of the most highly anticipated moments of the new Democratic-controlled House, but those expecting significant public insights into the Russia investigation could be disappointed.

Cohen is not expected to answer questions about any topics related to that investigation when he appears before the House Oversight Committee next month because special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation is ongoing. He consulted with the special counsel before agreeing to appear at the hearing, two sources told CNN.

That doesn't mean Cohen's testimony won't have dramatic reveals.

Cohen is prepared to discuss topics related to hush money payments and aspects of the Trump Organization, including the roles of the President and his children, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Cohen is willing to detail -- if asked -- then-candidate Trump's role in directing payments to two women who have claimed they had affairs with Trump and how his election played a role in that, according to the source. Trump has denied affairs with the women. Cohen may also talk about how he thinks his incarceration for tax evasion is unfair, the source said.

Cohen's testimony has raised questions about what he can say publicly given that the Mueller probe continues.

House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings said his staff has been consulting with Mueller about Cohen's appearance and will continue to do so ahead of his February 7 hearing." (More)
