AP — Five people in President Donald Trump’s orbit have pleaded guilty to federal charges. Prosecutors in Washington and New York are investigating whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin in the 2016 election and whether Trump directed an illegal hush-money scheme to silence women who said they had sex with him.
A look at those cases:
Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to lying to Congress about his work on a possible Trump real estate project in Moscow in a case brought by special counsel Robert Mueller’s office.
Cohen — who for more than a decade was a key power player in the Trump Organization and a fixture in Trump’s political life — said he did so to be consistent with Trump’s “political messaging.” Court documents show Cohen is cooperating with Mueller and has met with his team seven times.
