Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen providing info in Mueller probe

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer claims to be providing “critical information” in the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign-finance violations and other charges last month, tweeted Thursday that he provided information to prosecutors without a cooperation agreement.

The tweet was deleted almost immediately and later reposted by Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis.

ABC News reported Thursday that Cohen has met several times with investigators for the special counsel’s office.

Cohen has said Trump directed him to arrange hush-money deals for porn actress Stormy Daniels and a former Playboy model to fend off damage to his White House bid.

Cohen’s tweet said no one “should question his integrity, veracity or loyalty to his family and country” over Trump.
