Michael Cohen will appear on Capitol Hill to face questions from Congress. Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vermont, sits on the House Intelligence and the House Oversight Committees that will question him.
"He's expected to address, first of all, his lies to those (congressional) committees on the timing of the Trump Tower and Moscow deal, the fact that it was going on much longer than he admitted in public and much longer than Donald Trump acknowledged", Dilanian said.
Lawmakers also plan to question Cohen about "the accuracy of the President's public statements" and "public efforts by the President and his attorney to intimidate Mr. Cohen or others not to testify", The Washington Post reported.
Michael Cohen, US President Donald Trump's former personal attorney, arrives with his daughter Samantha for sentencing in New York December 12, 2018.
The hearing, beginning at 10am (11pm Malaysian time) Wednesday, is to start just hours before Trump is to sit down for talks in Hanoi with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un - a coincidence of timing sharply deplored by Republicans and Trump supporters.
In the private sessions, Congress will likely probe Cohen about Russia-related issues.

Cohen has been sentenced to serve three years in prison after being convicted of lying to Congress in previous appearances, campaign finance violations tied to the hush money payments, bank fraud and tax evasion.
"In or around November 2015, Cohen received the contact information for, and spoke with, a Russian national who claimed to be a "trusted person" in the Russian Federation who could offer the campaign "political synergy" and 'synergy on a government level, '" prosecutors wrote.
Trump has routinely dismissed Cohen - who famously said in a 2017 Vanity Fair interview that he "would take a bullet for the president" - as a liar.
Trump has maintained that a "red line" would be an investigation into his finances, though he's now growing exasperated that Congress is looking into Cohen's finances and business dealings.
Cohen had been scheduled to report to prison on March 6.
