The U.S. President Trump’s former lawyer stated that he was providing "critical information" as the part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections and possible coordination between Moscow and Trump’s campaign, as Business Insider reports.

Michael Cohen said he was providing information to the prosecutors without a cooperation agreement on Thursday.

“Trump's longtime fixer-turned-foe could be a vital witness for prosecutors as they investigate whether Trump's campaign coordinated with Russians. For more than a decade, Cohen was Trump's personal lawyer, and he was a key power player in the Trump Organization and a fixture in Trump's political life,” the news agency reads.

In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal charges. He said Trump ordered him to “arrange payments before the 2016 election to buy the silence of porn actress Stormy Daniels and a former Playboy model who had both alleged they had affairs with Trump”.

“It was the first time any Trump associate implicated Trump himself in a crime, though whether — or when — a president can be prosecuted remains a matter of legal dispute,” the message says.

Cohen made a post on Twitter on Thursday night, but the tweet was deleted and later reposted by his Attorney, Lanny Davis.

The Attorney said “he wrote the tweet for Cohen and asked him to tweet it because he has a "much larger following." Davis said he was delayed posting the tweet on his own account, so Cohen tweeted it first”.
