Prosecutors on Thursday unsealed hundreds of documents detailing how Michael Cohen silenced two of President Donald Trump’s alleged mistresses during the middle of the 2016 election.
A day earlier the Justice Department announced that it had closed the investigation into the Trump Organization and whether it had any criminal liability for Cohen’s hush-money payouts. Cohen, the former fixer for Trump, plead guilty in 2018 to campaign-finance violations in connection with payoffs to buy the silence of former porn star and alleged Trump mistress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.
With the case closed, a federal judge in New York ordered the court documents unsealed as they were “a matter of national importance” and added that “it is time that every American has an opportunity to scrutinize the materials.”
