New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood's office interviewed longtime Donald Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen on Wednesday, CNN reports.

The meeting reportedly occurred at the New York City office of Cohen's attorney, Guy Petrillo.

State investigators were joined by prosecutors from the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, who have already convicted Cohen on eight counts of violating federal law.

The participation of state investigators is significant because President Trump lacks the power to issue pardons for state convictions.

Also this week, Trump lashed out at Cohen in an interview with the Associated Press -- seeking to distance himself from his longtime friend and advisor.

"On another topic: Michael Cohen was your personal attorney for many years. He testified under oath in federal court that you directed him to commit a crime. Did you, sir?" the AP asked.

"Totally false," Trump replied. "It's totally false."

"He wasn't in trouble for what he did for me; he was in trouble for what he did for other people," the commander-in-chief falsely claimed.

The New York Attorney General's office is also investigating the Trump Foundation.
