A letter from 2018 involving disbarred lawyer Michael Cohen could potentially alter the hush money payment investigation into former President Donald Trump.
The document, authored by Cohen’s lawyer, states Cohen was not reimbursed the $130,000 payment from the Trump organization.
That document contradicts Cohen’s Congressional testimony back in 2019 where he stated he met with Trump multiple times to discuss the payments and provided Congress with several checks he received in return.
The statement by Michael Cohen’s lawyer could contradict the basis of the investigation into Trump and the hush money payment.
Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg is not commenting on the open investigation and what role the newly released letter may play in it.
It remains to be seen what weight the grand jury puts on the letter, especially compared to Michael Cohen’s testimony that former President Trump is the one who repaid him the hush money.
