Mueller Reportedly Scrutinizing Some Interactions of Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen
Shortly after a new report dropped on “inside info” Trump lawyer Michael Cohen received, another report dropped about Cohen being on Robert Mueller‘s radar.
Per The Washington Post, Mueller has “requested documents and interviewed witnesses” regarding interactions involving Cohen:
There is no indication that Cohen is a subject or target of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. But the scrutiny of his interactions is another sign of the far-reaching nature of the special-counsel probe, which is examining members of the president’s inner circle and aspects of Trump’s past business outreach to Russia.
As one of Trump’s closest advisers, Cohen played a role in at least two episodes involving Russian interests that have drawn Mueller’s attention, according to several people familiar with document subpoenas and witness interviews.
His involvement in the attempts to build a Trump Tower in Moscow in particular is apparently being scrutinized.
Cohen has mostly been in the news recently for, well, non-Russia-related reasons. He recently acknowledged he paid that $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, and reports on the behind-the-scenes leading up to that payment are still coming out.
