Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to one charge arising from the Mueller investigation: lying to Congress in connection with the length of negotiations over the Trump Tower Moscow project.

Numerous witnesses are asked for documents related to Cohen’s testimony to the committee. This aspect of the probe has the potential to answer whether a January Buzzfeed report saying that president Trump directed Cohen to lie the committee is borne out by reality.

House investigators are interested in the following witnesses and entities:

-Former chief of staff to Don McGahn Annie Donaldson

-DOJ

-Former White House Counsel Don McGahn

-Donald Trump Jr., presidential son and Trump Org executive

-Eric Trump, son of the president and Trump Org executive

-FBI

-Hope Hicks, former Trump campaign press secretary and White House communications adviser

-Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser

-Jay Sekulow, personal attorney to President Trump

-Jeff Sessions, former attorney general

-Michael Cohen, former personal attorney and fixer for President Trump

-The White House

-Sean Spicer, ex-White House Press Secretary and Trump administration communications director
