Michael Cohen Expected To Plead Guilty In Mueller Investigation: Reports



President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen is expected to plead guilty Thursday morning in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, multiple news outlets reported.

According to ABC News, he is expected to plead guilty to lying to Congress during private testimony last year about his contacts with Russia during Trump’s campaign, and to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation.

Cohen, who served as Trump’s attorney and fixer for years, has been under close scrutiny from federal prosecutors in New York for engineering hush money payments during the 2016 campaign to silence Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, two women who alleged having extramarital affairs with Trump.

In August, he pleaded guilty to charges that included violating campaign finance laws and said that he made the payments under Trump’s direction.
