A former personal attorney for President Donald Trump pleaded guilty Thursday to one charge in the special counsel’s investigation.
Michael Cohen will plead guilty to making false statements to Congress about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to ABC News.
Cohen will admit to lying to Congress about his efforts in 2015 to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, The Associated Press reported.
Cohen has met extensively with special counsel Robert Mueller since pleading guilty on Aug. 21 in federal court in New York City to tax evasion and illegal campaign finance charges.
He is expected to be sentenced in two weeks in that case.
Cohen is a key figure in the special counsel’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. He is accused in the infamous Steele dossier of visiting Prague in August 2016 to meet with Russians and pay off hackers who infiltrated Democrats’ email accounts.
Cohen vehemently denied the allegations after BuzzFeed News published the dossier on Jan. 10, 2017. His attorney, Lanny Davis, continued denying the dossier’s claim even after Cohen pleaded guilty in the New York federal case. Davis said that Cohen has never visited Prague and that other allegations about him in the dossier were false.
