Money and loyalty: A look inside dramatic Trump-Cohen rift

Attorney General Barbara Underwood's office sought the referral in recent days, following the criminal charges brought against President Donald Trump's former personal attorney by federal prosecutors in the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, this person said.

How is Trump's policy of "Be loyal to be, and I will treat you like dirt" working?

The charges brought by federal prosecutors on Tuesday, which included a count of false statements to a bank and campaign-finance violations tied to payments he made to silence women who claimed affairs with Trump, also described a tax evasion scheme linked to Cohen's taxi medallion business.

Federal prosecutors in NY granted immunity to publisher David Pecker in exchange for information in the investigation into hush-money payments by Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organisation's chief financial officer, was said to have met with prosecutors weeks ago after being ordered to appear before a grand jury.

Now that the trio is missing its driving force, Graham wrote that "America and Freedom have lost one of her greatest champions". A conservative on most issues, he pushed for campaign finance reform and the effort to account for those missing in Vietnam.

Weisselberg then sent the invoice to another Trump Organization executive via e-mail directing him to "Please pay from the Trust". Weisselberg was also treasurer of The Donald J. Trump Foundation, the president's nonprofit, which has been sued by the NY attorney general for alleged violations of state law.

On Thursday, it emerged that David Pecker, head of the company that publishes the National Enquirer tabloid, was also given immunity.

"So that being a campaign contribution, and that is what basically Mr Cohen has already pleaded guilty to, the corporation is equally guilty, including those who operate the corporation", he added.

What's the origin of all this?

The tape was seized during the FBI's April raid on Cohen's residence and office, and was released to the media by Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis. What they found was passed on to NY judicial authorities.

Trump has repeatedly denied there was collusion and has labelled the Mueller probe a "witch hunt".
