Criminal Investigation Launched against Lawyer of the US President Donald Trump

  • The US Justice Department has announced that Michael Cohen (top lawyer of the US President Donald Trump) is under criminal investigation due to his business dealings. The court filing says Cohen was under probe for several months now. Reports say the filing was done after Cohen’s lawyer tried to stop prosecutors from reviewing materials that were seized on Monday from his office. While Cohen’s office argue that the seized papers by the prosecutors are actually covered by the attorney-client privilege, US President Donald Trump condemned the office raid and called it “disgraceful”.  Government prosecutors also argued Cohen seems to have only one client, the US President Donald Trump.
