The tweet comes as House Democrats reportedly plan to focus on payments Daniels and former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal received before the 2016 election to stay silent about affairs they allegedly had with Trump.

However, Democrats reportedly believe there is enough evidence to pursue an inquiry of their own, and they intend to call witnesses to testify when they return to Congress next week.
Cohen is currently serving three years in prison for campaign finance violations stemming from the hush money payments, among other federal crimes. He testified under oath earlier this year that Trump directed the payments that led to the campaign finance violations.
The House Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on the payments that could take place as early as October.
The committee’s inquiry will look into the payments Daniels and McDougal received as part of its more comprehensive prove into alleged crimes committed by Trump and whether they add to the case to bring articles of impeachment against the president.
To date, more than 130 House Democrats have publicly voiced support for opening an impeachment inquiry into Trump.
