Cohen on Thursday spent nearly eight hours behind closed doors with members of the House Intelligence Committee.

Cohen pleaded guilty a year ago to lying to Congress about the Moscow project, but Schiff said he answered all of the panel's questions.

Cohen as said he would be back to testify in US Congress on 6 March in connection to alleged illegal activity directed by Trump during his campaign and while in office.

During his testimony, Cohen called Trump a "racist" and "con man" who lied throughout the 2016 elections about his business interests in Russian Federation.

As Michael Cohen shed new light on the inner workings of President Donald Trump's family business Wednesday, he rattled off a list of Trump Organization officials who are now likely to face congressional scrutiny of their own. He said the president arranged to reimburse Mr Cohen, and Mr Cohen brought to the hearing a cheque that he said was proof of the transaction.

While they have worked in a collaborative way, Burr has said he has not yet seen "anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russian Federation".

Mr Schiff said the committee would hear from Felix Sater, a Russia-born executive who worked with Mr Cohen on an ultimately unsuccessful deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, in an open hearing on March 14. The reimbursement checks, which continued even after Trump took office, were at times signed by Weisselberg and Trump Jr., as well as by Trump himself. "There were names that were mentioned, or records that were mentioned during the hearing", the Maryland Democrat said.

He said prosecutors in NY were investigating conversations Trump or his advisers had with him after his office and hotel room were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last April.

The Trump Organisation did not respond to a request for comment Thursday.

In December, Cohen pleaded guilty and received a three-year prison term in cases prosecuted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and federal authorities in NY.

After Cohen, the panel intends to interview more of Trump's associates, including Trump Organization CFO Alan Weisselberg, with whom the House Oversight Committee also has expressed an interest in speaking.

"I got exactly what I wanted", Cohen said.

"Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony", Trump wrote.

"Being around Mr Trump was intoxicating", Cohen said.

The article noted, in a reference to the president's elder daughter, that a "top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to "express my concern" that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen 'when this is audited.'"

The onetime lawyer, who has been disbarred, said Trump directed him to lie about hush payments made to a porn actress to silence her claims of a 2006 affair with the real estate tycoon. Jim Jordan of OH and Mark Meadows of North Carolina, sent a referral to the Justice Department alleging Cohen lied in his testimony.

Cohen said that last communication happened within two months of the Federal Bureau of Investigation raiding his home and office in April 2018, but he couldn't talk about what was said. Trump added: "It's called reliance".

"He said there was no collusion and I was a little impressed by that, frankly, he only went about 95 per cent instead of 100 per cent".
