Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, testified to a U.S. House committee Wednesday that the man he worked for for more than a decade is a racist, a conman and a cheat.

Cohen, in his planned opening statement released in advance of his testimony, will offer the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform a list of wrongdoings he said Trump was involved both before and after he was elected president, and admit his part in helping Trump in those activities. He will also tell the committee that he is ashamed to have worked for Trump.

Cohen will appear before the committee beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Below are live updates from Cohen’s testimony.
