Trump's former lawyer testified Wednesday to the House Oversight Committee regarding Donald Trump.

“I am ashamed of my weakness and misplaced loyalty – of the things I did for Mr. Trump in an effort to protect and promote him," Cohen said.

"I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. And he is a cheat.”

"Donald Trump is a man who ran for office to make his brand great, not to make our country great."

"He never expected to win the primary. He never expected to win the general election. The campaign for him was always a marketing opportunity."

" I regret the day I said 'yes' to Mr. Trump. I regret all the help and support I gave him along the way."

" I have come here to apologize to my family, to the government, and to the American people."
