Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen boasts of aiding Mueller investigation

Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen boasts of aiding Mueller investigation

Cohen has evidently discussed "all aspects of Trump's dealings with Russian Federation", and he has been asked about whether the president has offered to pardon him.

Michael Cohen has discussed President Donald Trump's dealings with Russian Federation in hours of interviews with special counsel Robert Mueller's team over the past month, ABC News reported Thursday. He was asked by investigators about Trump's business and any business dealings with Russian Federation, the people said.

One week ago, former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort agreed in a plea deal with Mueller to cooperate in the investigation.

Former Trump's lawyer cooperation with the special counsel may worsen the relationship between the investigators and the White House that has gone on the offensive and called the probe a "witch hunt".

Since Cohen is also apparently cooperating with state officials investigating the Trump family charity, Abrams discussed this with George Stephanopoulos, saying there's plenty to think about with so many people cooperating to provide insight into Trumpworld. Any interview is unlikely to take place before the November midterm elections, the source said.

Davis said Cohen, who pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts last month - including tax evasion, excessive campaign contribution and making false statements to a bank - cooperated without an agreement for sentence leniency.

He implicated Trump in the two campaign finance violations, telling a federal judge he broke the law "in coordination with and at the direction of a federal candidate for office", a clear reference to Trump. This is of particular interest because Cohen was reportedly one of the key figures working to strike a deal to build a Trump Tower Moscow during the campaign.

Cohen told the Senate Intelligence Committee a year ago that the possible project was "solely a real estate deal and nothing more" and that it was scrapped "before the Iowa caucus and months before the first primary".
