Michael Cohen Reaches Plea Deal in New York
Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney to President Donald Trump, accepted a plea deal
from the United States government on Tuesday. Cohen plead guilty to eight counts of campaign finance, tax evasion and bank fraud charges. Cohen explained to a federal courtroom on Tuesday how he committed his crimes, to include payments to two women who had alleged they had affairs with President Donald Trump. According to CNN, Cohen told Judge William H. Pauley III that he paid the women “In coordination, and at the direction of the candidate for federal office, he had made these payments.” The women are adult film stars Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels, both who alleged they had affairs with Trump while he was married to First Lady Melania Trump.
