Michael Cohen testified on Wednesday before the House Oversight and Reform Committee. Cohen called Trump a "crook", a "cheater" and a "fundamentally unfaithful".

On Tuesday, the public will see the search warrant and other documents related to the FBI's incursions into Michael Cohen's home and office.

What we could learn: the origin of the investigation, the chronology of events, what the investigators were looking for in their research and other details about the case of the former lawyer and mediator of President Donald Trump.

US District Judge William H. Pauley III on Monday ordered redacted versions of the documents, after nine news outlets, including ABC and CBS News, The Associated Press, CNN and The Wall Street Journal, attempted to unlock them, citing the public interest and right of access.

In a statement Monday, Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis, said the publication of the documents reinforced Cohen's interest in "continuing to cooperate and provide information and truth about Donald Trump and his organization." to the police authorities and the Congress ".

More: Did Trump keep his 19 promises to isolate himself from his business? Only he knows.

Opinion: Michael Cohen did not turn around because he did get caught. This is all that can be expected in the Trump era.

Prosecutors opposed the request, saying the disclosure "would jeopardize an ongoing investigation and infringe the privacy rights of unpaid third parties".

The judge's order will allow for the writing of information that may affect ongoing investigations. Cohen's personal information – including phone numbers, e-mail addresses and housing details – will be redacted, in accordance with Pauley's order.

Pauley acknowledged the point raised by media organizations in a 30-page filing in February: "The public interest in the material underlying documents – which involves the integrity of the presidential election of 2016 – is substantial, "said the judge, according to the daily. Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In December, Pauley sentenced Cohen to a three-year prison sentence for crimes, including lying in Congress and paying two women to keep silent on alleged deals with Trump. He must go to prison in early May.

Cohen went to Congress in February to testify about illegal activities and lies, claiming he acted on behalf of Trump, calling the president a "fraudster" and "cheater."

Regarding Cohen's testimony, Trump said, "It was rather shameful, I think," adding that Cohen's appearance before the Committee on Parliamentary Oversight and Government Reform had been a "false audience."

The New York Times, the New York Post, Newsday and the Daily News were also among the media outlets involved in the legal process to access Cohen documents.
