Report: NY DA Spoke to Michael Cohen in Hush Money Probe

(CNN/"The Lead")

President Donald Trump's former fixer, now political adversary Michael Cohen has been interviewed amid an investigation into hush money payments during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to a CNN exclusive.

Cohen, serving his three-year prison sentence for campaign finance violations in Otisville, New York, was interviewed from jail by the New York district attorney prosecutors, led by Cyrus Vance, sources told CNN.

The investigation into the Trump Organization's financial records of payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal was opened in August.

Its focus is determining whether New York state law was broken by falsifying records of the reimbursements made to Cohen, who testified he made the hush money payments on behalf of the president.

Cohen was one of the first targets interviewed in the investigation because of his testimony to Congress, after he pled guilty to lying to Congress about Trump Tower project in Moscow and making a $130,000 payment to Daniels to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.

Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York closed their own investigation into the hush money payments in July, and the Trump Organization was not charged, per the report.
