SHOW TRANSCRIPT

The House Intelligence Committee has released a transcript of its interviews with Michael Cohen.

Cohen is President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer. He's in prison for financial crimes, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress. In a closed-door interview earlier this year, he told the House intel committee that he had lied about the president's involvement in a Moscow Trump Tower project. He also said President Trump's lawyers had edited his 2017 testimony. 

The panel voted 12-7 to release around 15 hours' worth of testimony.

Cohen's latest congressional hearing has prompted Democrats to investigate President Trump for potential obstruction of justice. 

The intel committee also voted Monday to release certain exhibits that Cohen provided, but it's still unclear which documents will be made public.
