In a highly anticipated speech at the United Nations today, President Michael Cohen will defend himself against claims he lied to the Senate about his role in a massive Russian intelligence operation targeting Donald Trump and his allies during the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen’s testimony at the UN will be the second in as many days in which he will accuse former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and other members of his campaign team of having a role in the 2016 election interference. 

“My testimony today will be not just about the conduct of those who led my campaign,” Cohen told the UN General Assembly, “but about the character of the people who were charged, and whether or not they were guilty of the charges.” 

“They were convicted, and I hope they will be held accountable,” Cohen said, “and I will continue to stand up for justice for the people of the United States of America.” 

Cohen will also discuss the recent congressional hearings, in which members of the Trump campaign, the Obama administration, and other officials have testified under oath. 

Cohens first told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he did not know Manafort or Manafort’s wife, Natalia Veselnitskaya, had been in contact with any Russians during the campaign. 

In response, Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Cohen about a July 20 press conference held by Veselnititskaya in which she stated she had been approached by a member of the Russian government who said that Trump campaign officials could be “given immunity from prosecution” if they were to testify against Manafort and Manafort’s associates. 

During Cohen’s confirmation hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in January, Cohen repeatedly said he was not aware of any Russian contacts during the election. 

He later recanted his comments and said he did know that Veselnatskaya had been contacted by someone who could help the Trump team with its campaign.

“I did not hear anything that would make me believe that,” Cohen, a Republican, told senators. 

After the Senate’s confirmation hearings, Cohen said in his Senate testimony that he didn’t know what Veselnitzkaya was talking about, but that he had spoken to a woman in Russia who could provide information on Manafort and his associates.

In his Senate Judiciary hearing on Tuesday, Cohen will again make the claim that he was “not aware” of any contacts between the Trump family and Russia. 

As Cohen prepares to appear before the UN Security Council, he will also defend his testimony that the Trump administration was aware that Manafort and associates were colluding with Russia to influence the 2016 U.S. election.

The UN General Council is expected to adopt a resolution this week condemning Trump’s claims of Russian interference in the election, and Cohen is expected in his remarks to highlight the need for the U.N. to act on that resolution. 

The United States and Russia have a long history of disagreements over issues like Ukraine and Syria, with Russia currently occupying the Ukrainian region of Crimea and Trump accusing Putin of annexing Crimea.
