(NBC NEWS) – Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former longtime personal attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty in federal court on Thursday to a single count of making false statements to Congress about the project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Cohen’s plea marked the first time that Trump and his private business dealings in Moscow were named in open court as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s ties to the Trump campaign.
Trump had said during his campaign in 2016 that he had no business interests in Russia, but Cohen, 52, said in his plea that those business interests were not severed and in fact continued into the summer of 2016.
