JUST IN: Michael Cohen subpoenaed on Trump Foundation


Michael Cohen’s legal snare deepened Wednesday, and so did, potentially, President Donald Trump’s.

The Associated Press reported Wednesday that Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, received a subpoena from New York investigators. The focus of their probe: Trump Foundation.

The AP reported he subpoena was issued after Cohen’s attorney said Trump’s former “fixer” possessed information that could assist both state and federal prosecutors. The AP story said that Cohen “could potentially be a significant source of information for state investigators looking into whether Trump or his charity broke state law or lied about their tax liability.”

What might they be investigated in terms of Trump’s past charity efforts? Here are three stories the Post has reported on the Trump Foundation.
