The investigation into Cohen is separate from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the 2016 Trump campaign.

Cohen's business is now under investigation in Manhattan, which includes the controversial $130,000 hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 presidential election. But not good news for Team Trump.
