That and other findings about ways to reduce deaths in the opioid epidemic come from a special commission that included current and former drug users, two mayors, doctors, law enforcement and legal experts, as well as state government appointees.

Massachusetts U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley promises to pull no punches when she questions President Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen, who will testify publicly before the House Oversight and Reform Committee Wednesday.
