REPORT: Cohen Bragged He’s In The Russian Mob

Business Insider reports:

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s embattled personal lawyer, once bragged that he was part of the Russian mob, The Wall Street Journal reported. Cohen is currently in the midst of a legal firestorm as the FBI investigates him for possible wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations in connection to his work for Trump.

Cohen is also a subject of interest in the special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, which is examining whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow to tilt the 2016 US election in Trump’s favor.

According to The Journal, Cohen once told someone at a former friend’s wedding that he belonged to the Russian mob. The former friend, Gregory Ehrlich, said he does not believe Cohen has any such ties.
