Cohen's business partner to cooperate with prosecutors

Cohen's business partner to cooperate with prosecutors

One source in Kiev said Mr Poroshenko had given Mr Trump "a gift" - making sure that Ukraine would find no more evidence to give the U.S. inquiry into whether the Trump campaign "colluded" with Russian Federation.

Mr Cohen is facing a probe by the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan, which is examining his business practices. This eventually led to Michael Cohen, the president's lawyer and trusted fixer.

House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes, and Representative Trey Gowdy also have been invited to a meeting to review classified documents conservative lawmakers believe will substantiate their claims.

The investigation into Cohen arose in part from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into possible collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, something that Trump has repeatedly denied.

There was no indication Trump asked for the Manfort matter to be dropped.

There is no suggestion the president knew about the alleged payment, with a second Kiev source telling the BBC that it was actually $600,000.

The investigation may pose a significant threat to Trump, who has been warned by his legal team that Cohen could flip on him as his legal troubles mount.

The Times wrote that Freidman's cooperation could be used as leverage to get Cohen to work with the special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 USA election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials.

"I pled guilty to a felony".

Cohen's fee was for getting Poroshenko more than just an embarrassingly brief few minutes of small talk and a handshake, the senior official said.

The Foreign Agents Registration Act is a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship.

But the gesture has not satisfied Mr Trump's allies in Congress, who doubt that the law enforcement agencies will be forthcoming.

"Poroshenko's inner circle was shocked by how dirty this whole arrangement", one source tells the BBC. No report has indicated that Cohen had any meaningful impact on Trump's decisions or administration.

Though sources confirmed the arrangement was made, discrepancies surfaced over the amount that Cohen was paid.

It's the first time we've heard of payments to Cohen that resulted in action by the White House. Hence, the red-faced Poroshenko needed a chance to make good with Trump. Trump did not specify the reason for the payment.
