ABC trying to say he flipped on Trump.
Michael Cohen, the former longtime fixer and personal attorney for Donald Trump, agreed Tuesday to a tentative deal with federal prosecutors in New York that requires him to plead guilty to several felony charges of bank fraud, tax evasion and violations of campaign finance law, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.
The tax charges stem from Cohen’s personal business dealings and investments in real estate and the taxi industry.
The campaign finance violations, however, are associated with Cohen’s role in alleged hush money agreements with two women, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who claim to have had affairs with Trump, according to sources briefed on the agreement.
Cohen formally surrendered to the FBI and is scheduled to appear Tuesday afternoon before a federal district court judge in Manhattan where the deal can be formalized.
30 years per charge. Maximum of 80.
