According to US press reports, Michael Cohen, President of Donald Trump, has been a personal attorney in recent weeks having met several times with colleagues from the Trump campaign team and co-commissioned by Robert Mueller, a co-conspirator between the Russians.
Cohen, referring to the sources of the ABC television and The Wall Street Journal, told Trumpr and the president’s business in Russia.
The president – refuting the alleged collusion with the Russians – has repeatedly criticized the Mueller test as a “witch hunt,” and in an interview last year, The New York Times, stated that if the committee were to examine its business, it would cross a limit.
Lanny Davis, Cohen’s attorney earlier said that his client was ready to cooperate with the Mueller Committee, but did not say whether hearings would take place. Davis did not want to comment on press releases on Thursday night.
Michael Cohen was indicted in a Manhattan federal court for eight offenses, including a violation of the campaign finance law. An attorney who has been one of Trump’s most trusted affairs for over a decade has pleaded guilty to all eight charges in court and admitted violating the campaign finance law. He confessed that Donald Trump had instructed him during the 2016 presidential campaign to buy the silence of two women who claimed to have been a decade ago with the then-businessman Trump.
Michael Cohen’s lawsuit has not yet been filed but after he pleaded guilty and promised to cooperate with both the court and the Mueller committee, his lawyers – according to their press reports – expect a mild punishment to be imposed on him.
The Mueller Committee, according to US reports, is investigating Cohen’s efforts to investigate the former lawyer’s intention to reach an agreement on a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 election campaign. E-mails containing details of business negotiations were handed over to the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee by August 2017.
