Cummings of Maryland, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, said after Wednesday’s hearing that he “probably will” want to call additional witnesses, including Mr. Weisselberg, to gather additional evidence about the hush-money payment.A Democratic official said that the House Intelligence Committee anticipates calling Mr. Weisselberg to testify, as well.Mr. Cohen said in the hearing that the payment was ordered by Mr. Trump, which violated campaign finance laws because it was intended to buy Ms. Daniels’s silence so that she could not hurt Mr. Trump’s prospects right before the election.Mr. Cohen said he had paid Ms. Daniels with his own money, and then was repaid by the Trump Organization.“Allen Weisselberg made the decision that it should be paid over the 12 months so that it would look like a retainer,” Mr. Cohen told lawmakers, describing how reimbursements were made monthly.Mr. Cohen submitted to Congress a copy of a $35,000 check — labeled exhibit 5b — that he said was one of those monthly payments.It was signed by Mr. Weisselberg and Donald Trump Jr.Mr. Weisselberg declined to comment through his lawyers. He transferred the deed to his son Jack, according to property records, who flipped it for more than four times the original price in 2006.Jack Weisselberg did not respond to email or phone messages.Aside from an awkward cameo on the second season of Mr. Trump’s television show, “The Apprentice,” Mr. Weisselberg has until recently stayed out of the limelight, focusing on serving his boss.In his books and in interviews, the president has described Mr. Weisselberg as his go-to man, whether it was to help pick carpet swatches for a development, or to strong-arm firms with which he contracted.In Mr. Cohen’s testimony on Wednesday, Mr. Trump’s reliance on his C.F.O. was on display.
