Longtime Donald Trump "fixer" Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors about "insurance claims" made by the Trump Organization, The New York Times reported Friday.


"Mr. Cohen, who worked at the Trump Organization for a decade, spoke with the prosecutors about insurance claims the company had filed over the years, said the people, who did not elaborate on the nature of the possible irregularities," The Times explained.

"While it was not clear whether the prosecutors found Mr. Cohen’s information credible and whether they intended to pursue it, the meeting suggests that they are interested in broader aspects of the Trump Organization, beyond their investigation into the company’s role in the hush money payments made before the 2016 election to women claiming to have had affairs with Mr. Trump," the newspaper explained.

Cohen was also questioned California venture capitalist Imaad Zuberi's donations to Trump's inauguration.

"Around the time that Mr. Zuberi contributed $900,000 to the committee, he also tried to hire Mr. Cohen as a consultant and wrote him a substantial check, one of the people said," The Times explained.
