Michael Cohen to plead guilty to making false statements to Congress: report

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former longtime attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday to making false statements to Congress about the project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News.
He misrepresented the scope and length of his involvement, the source said.



The false statements were made in closed-door testimony last year about his contacts with Russians during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to ABC News, which first reported the plea.
