Longtime Trump Attorney Michael Cohen Hires Criminal Attorney To Represent Him In Russia Probe

Trump’s attorneys don’t get paid, so he generally has really bad ones.  None  worse than New York City slicker Michael Cohen.  Racist President Donald Trump’s longtime attorney and adviser Michael Cohen has hired a lawyer to represent him in the investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Cohen told CNN on Friday.President-Elect Donald Trump Holds Meetings At Trump Tower
Cohen, who serves as Trump’s personal attorney, hired Stephen Ryan, a partner at the DC-based law firm McDermott, Will and Emery, to handle inquiries related to the investigations into Russian meddling in the election. News of the hire comes two weeks after Cohen was subpoenaed by the House intelligence committee as part of the committee’s probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Cohen told CNN earlier this week that he is “committed to complying with the subpoena.” He has also agreed to testify before the committee September 5.
He declined to say whether he is fielding additional investigative inquiries, directing all questions on the matter to his attorney. Ryan did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Cohen served as executive vice president and special counsel at the Trump Organization during Trump’s presidential campaign and did not hold a formal title in the campaign. But he was a prominent TV surrogate for Trump during the campaign and led the National Diversity Coalition in support of it.
Cohen denies being involved with Russians.
