  • The drama surrounding President Donald Trump and his
    former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen is continuing to
    unfold.

participated in other crimes. The FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel
room, and office in April, seizing more than 4 million documents

facilitated weeks before the 2016 presidential election to porn
star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to
keep her from talking about her allegation of a 2006 affair with
Trump. The FBI sought documents related to that payment and other
similar agreements with other women.

Trump, Cohen, and the White House have denied that an affair took
place. Originally, Cohen said Trump did not reimburse him for the
payment. In May, Trump
acknowledged that he did
