Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen appears in court for the second time in a week

Giving short answers to the media members at the entrance of the courthouse in New York, Cohen stated that he “feels perfect, he does not know what questions await him inside”.

Cohen said those who will vote for Trump, who is a candidate in the 2024 election, “should think again”.

Cohen appeared before the grand jury for the second time in a week as part of the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

Parting ways with Trump, Cohen told the press on Monday in front of the courthouse, “This is not revenge. My goal is to tell the truth.” he said.

Describing the investigation as a “witch hunt”, Trump said on the Truth Social platform last week, “I have certainly done nothing wrong. I have never had an affair with Stormy Daniels.” had shared.

Stormy Daniels argued that she signed an agreement in 2016 for a payment of 130,000 dollars to remain silent about her alleged sexual intercourse with Trump, but that the agreement was invalid because it was not signed by Trump.

While Trump denied Daniels’ allegations, Michael Cohen, who served as Trump’s lawyer before the 2016 election campaign, confirmed that he had paid Daniels $130,000 from his own account on Trump’s behalf.

Cohen argued that he was later repaid by the Trump companies of about $420,000, along with bonuses.

Detained in December 2018 on charges of “lying” and “tax evasion” in the investigation into Trump’s election campaign, Cohen was sentenced in court to 3 years in prison and sent to federal prison in Otisville in May 2019 to serve his sentence.

In those years, federal prosecutors did not need to initiate any investigation against Trump, while the Manhattan district attorney’s office initiated the investigation file known as the “silence payment.”
