New York AG subpoenas Cohen in probe of Trump's sham charity

The New York Attorney General has subpoenaed former Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen in its probe of the Trump Foundation, the Associated Press is reporting.


Cohen, who on Tuesday pleaded guilty to eight separate felony counts, likely has detailed knowledge of the foundations operations, which the New York AG has alleged were rife with fraud.

New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood this past June announced that her office was suing Trump and his three eldest children for allegedly using the charity to conduct multiple illegal activities.

In particular, the New York AG's office says it found multiple instances of alleged self-dealing within the Trump Foundation, as Trump signed off on using charity money to pay off lawsuits against his businesses — and even to buy a $10,000 portrait of himself.

Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, has suggested during cable news appearances that his client could provide useful information about the foundation's operations.
