On Thursday, CNN reported that President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen claims to have more unreviewed documents potentially of use to federal investigators, and wants to offer additional cooperation.
“Mr. Cohen was only recently able to access a hard drive with important documents,” wrote Cohen’s attorneys in a letter obtained by CNN. “Said drive contains over 14 million files, which consist of all e-mails, voice recordings, images, and attachments from Mr. Cohen’s computers and phones. To date, Mr. Cohen has located several documents that we believe have significant value to the various congressional oversight and investigation committees.”
Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in the illegal plot to pay off women Trump slept with ahead of the 2016 presidential election. He has also faced scrutiny for lying to Congress about the proposed deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. All of these matters are under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York.
He has spent months cooperating with investigators, and alleges that he facilitated the arrangements with Trump’s knowledge and approval.
