House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-Calif., said Tuesday that as a member of the House Oversight Committee, he and other members want to hear the truth from President Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen when he testifies publicly this week, but "his credibility is lacking."
"Maybe this week will be the first week that he actually tells the truth," the North Carolina Republican told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "He has raised his right hand and taken oaths, whether it's attorney/client privilege, oaths to tell the truth to Congress. Whether it's telling the truth to FBI Investigators and time and time again he has not told the truth."
Cohen is a "very seedy character," Meadows said. "Those are not my words; it is really the analysis that was done by the Southern District of New York, so hopefully we'll find out a little bit more about who Michael Cohen is."
Cohen is to testify behind closed doors this week to the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and in open session to the House Oversight Committee.
Meadows said he thinks the former Trump lawyer will make several accusations, and there are still many questions that remain in terms of potential criminal offenses that Cohen may have committed.
"I don't know why Michael Cohen is coming to Congress," Meadows said. "Supposedly he has told the special prosecutor everything he needed to know. But we will have a number of questions and I think there will be some very tough questions for Michael Cohen to answer tomorrow."
