Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen giving 'critical information' to Russia investigation

Michael Cohen, Donald Trump‘s former personal lawyer, has said he is providing “critical information” as part of the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible coordination between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign. Having admitted guilt to a string of charges last month, Cohen said on Thursday he was handing the information to special counsel Robert Mueller‘s prosecutors without a cooperation agreement. Mr Trump’s former fixer could be a vital witness for investigators as they examine whether the president’s campaign coordinated with Russians.
