USA Today: “Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in New York to lying to Congress about plans to build a Trump Tower in Russia.

The plea marked a major new development in Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Court documents filed as part of the plea deal detailed Trump’s business dealings in Russia that he long minimized and that lasted longer during his campaign than previously acknowledged.”
