House Intel Committee Probes Obstruction Claims Against Trump Lawyers

House Intel Comm. probes Trump lawyersThe House Intelligence Committee is  investigating whether lawyers tied to President Trump and his family  helped obstruct the panel’s inquiry into Russian election interference  by shaping false testimony, a series of previously undisclosed letters  from its chairman show.

The line of inquiry stems from claims made by the president’s former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, who told Congress earlier this year that the lawyers in question helped edit false testimony that he  provided to Congress in 2017 about a Trump Tower project in Moscow. Mr.  Cohen said they also dangled a potential pardon to try to ensure his  loyalty.
