Michael Cohen Sues Trump Over Promise to Cover His Legal Fees

  • 64 percent of U.S. voters believe Trump committed a crime before he became president, poll shows

His lawyers totally contradicted him.

Voters believe Cohen over Trump, according to the poll, which found that 50 percent of voters said they believed Cohen while 35 percent said they believed Trump.

Cohen came under renewed scrutiny after telling Congress that he never sought a pardon from the president. "He told our staff, 'I planned this hearing, I picked this committee, I had to persuade Michael Cohen to do it.' Maybe most importantly he said 'I had to persuade chairman Cummings to do it'".

Trump said Cohen lied in court yet again with respect to whether he desired a position at the White House, saying his former lawyer wanted such a post "badly".

Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney of U.S. President Donald Trump, departs with his attorney and advisor Lanny Davis after testifying before a closed House Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., March 6, 2019.

Mr. Cohen testified that Mr. Trump never ordered him to lie when they met and just repeated his talking points on no-Russia-collusion. It also followed a Friday tweet by the president accusing him of committing perjury in sworn testimony last week before the House Intelligence Committee. Cohen is expected to begin serving a three-year sentence on those charges, and an additional count that he lied to Congress, in federal prison in May.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that Cohen's former lawyer, Stephen Ryan, discussed the possibility of a pardon for Cohen with Trump's attorneys after the FBI's raid on Cohen. The complaint chronicled, from Cohen's perspective, how he went from being a trusted Trump associate, so intertwined with the president's family business that it offered to pay his legal costs, to a bitter enemy, who last week told lawmakers that Trump was a "cheat", a "racist" and a "con man". He has also said his campaign did not collude with Moscow. The attorneys said they could join his legal team in order to be a conduit to Trump's lawyers, the person said.

Trump and Giuliani have repeatedly questioned Cohen's credibility.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly approaching the conclusion of his almost two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The case is Cohen v Trump Organization LLC, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No. 651377/2019. The company reaffirmed its commitment that December after Cohen complained to Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump about the delays, and it continued to pay through May 2018 - reimbursing more than US$1.7 million through direct payments, funding from Trump's campaign and credits from McDermott, according to the lawsuit.

"It depends on your employer and what the agreement happens to be, but if Michael Cohen's allegations are true and that he did enter into an agreement with the Trump Organization, then his legal bills certainly up through the search warrant process, and those were very significant legal bills we're told, should be paid by in fact the Trump Organization".
