In a deep dive into the complex relationship between President Donald Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the brash and controversial lawyer once bragged that he was a part of the Russian mob.

Cohen is currently under investigation by federal authorities for financial crimes, including making a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

According to the Journal, longtime friend Gregory Ehrlich recalled that he had invited Cohen to his wedding and was amused when he he overheard the attorney bragging to another guest that he affiliated with  the Russian mob. Ehrlich, who has since broken off ties with Cohen, admitted that he was skeptical of the boast.

On Thursday President Trump seemed to throw Cohen under the bus during a rambling Fox News interview in which he admitted that the attorney was working at his behest on the Stormy Daniels hush money agreement, only to later say that Cohen legal troubles had nothing to do with him or his campaign.
