(Newser) – President Donald Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, says he will be returning to Capitol Hill on March 6 for another round of questioning with lawmakers, the AP reports. Cohen spent Thursday behind closed doors with members of the House Intelligence Committee. It was the last of three appearances before Congress this week for Cohen, who pleaded guilty last year to lying to Congress. Cohen told reporters, "I'm committed to telling the truth and I'll be back on March 6 to finish up." House Intelligence Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff called the closed-door session with Cohen productive and said lawmakers were able to "drill down in great detail" on issues they are investigating. Meanwhile, two of President Trump's closest allies on the House Oversight Committee have called on the Justice Department to investigate Cohen for perjury over aspects of his public testimony Wednesday, CNN reports.
