President Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen provided new documents Wednesday to the House Intelligence Committee, showing edits made to his false statement to Congress about the Trump Tower Moscow project in 2017, according to a CNN report.

The big picture: CNN's report said it's still "unclear" what "was specifically changed" in Cohen's 2017 testimony, but CNN previously reported that Trump's legal team had no indication what he said at the time was inaccurate. And, as the Washington Post pointed out over the weekend, the edits "may not implicate lawyers in knowingly passing along a lie — if their clients had not been truthful with them."
