Hearing delayed in Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's NY court case

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen received a secret payment of at least $400,000 from the Ukraine in exchange for arranging this June 2017 Oval Office meeting with President Trump the BBC reported

To which Michael Cohen says, WHO?

One of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's attorney, one of his business partners entered a plea deal with prosecutors in the state of NY this week, to where he can avoid lofty prison sentences for ... he's been accused of ... let's see.

The two Ukrainians said to have opened the back channel denied the story, the BBC reported.

There has been no comment from the White House on the BBC report.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko's administration demands a refutation of false reports that a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump a year ago was "paid by Ukraine".

The BBC's report comes on the heels of disclosures two weeks ago that Cohen had received previously unknown payments from drugmaker Novartis, AT&T, defense contractor Korea Aerospace Industries, and a USA financial management firm linked to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg.

Yet other members of Trump's legal team argue that Cohen is less involved with Freidman than it seems.

Trump attorney Michael Cohen was not registered as a representative of Ukraine which is a legal requirement for doing work such as arranging an Oval Office meeting

Shortly after the June meeting with Trump, Ukraine's anti-corruption agency dropped its investigation into Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, who is now another top target in the Mueller probe.

"Today, the "Taxi King" admitted that he built his empire by stealing from New Yorkers", acting attorney general Barbara Underwood said in a statement. So yeah, he knows a lot about Michael Cohen.

He also helped arrange a 2016 payment to an adult film actress who said she had a sexual relationship with Trump. He also took pains to depict the taxi industry as a force for civic good, stating that "my best days" started on September 12, 2001, when people wouldn't employ "people of color or different ethnicities, and they all became taxi drivers". "And on neither end was it consummated". Trump, whose spokesmen have denied such an affair, reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels. Several sources told the BBC that Poroshenko authorized the leak of a document from the country's anticorruption agency to The New York Times that appeared to show Manafort being earmarked millions of dollars from Russian interests in Ukraine.

The BBC report cited unnamed sources in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv.

In return, Poroshenko gave Trump "a gift", the BBC reports; stifling the investigation into Manafort.

"There was never a direct order to stop the Manafort inquiry but from the way our investigation has progressed, it's clear that our superiors are trying to create obstacles", Serhiy Horbatyuk, the prosecutor in charge of the case, told the BBC.
