Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell NBC News.
Cohen is expected to plead guilty to charges related to bank fraud, tax fraud and a campaign finance violation, stemming from a federal investigation in New York. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
The plea could have significant implications for Trump, who has blasted Cohen ever since Cohen and his attorney, old Clinton hand Lanny Davis, began signaling this summer that Cohen might cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
In what Trump claims is nothing more than a rigged witch hunt, there are sure a lot of criminals being indicted and pleading guilty.
