Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer and “fixer” Michael Cohen, has pleaded guilty to charges including campaign finance fraud stemming from hush money payments to two women.
The 51-year-old Cohen entered the plea in federal court in New York on Tuesday. The other charges involve bank fraud and income tax evasion.
Cohen’s plea follows months of scrutiny from federal investigations and a falling out with the president, whom he previously said he’d “take a bullet” for.
FBI raids in April sought bank records, communications with Trump’s campaign and information on payments to Daniels and McDougal.
Both women claimed Trump had inmate connections with them, which he denies.
