Michael Cohen just sued President Trump for…wait for it…you will never believe it…especially after he is testifying against Trump… his legal fees.

Yep, Michael Cohen is suing President Trump so that Trump will pay his legal fees. He says he has incurred over $1.9 million in lawyers fees.

Good luck getting a dime Michael. From Axios: Michael Cohen is suing the Trump Organization for “failure to meet its indemnification obligations” by not paying his legal fees.

Details: The lawsuit claims that around July 2017, the Trump Organization and Cohen entered into an agreement under which the company would pay for Cohen’s representation and defense through “various matters,” including congressional hearings and the Mueller investigation.

The organization confirmed its commitment to the deal through at least May 2018, even after Cohen came under heightened investigative scrutiny.

In June 2018, shortly after Cohen began telling friends he was willing to cooperate with Mueller, the suit alleges the organization ceased to pay his law firm’s invoices “without notice or justification,” causing the firm to withdraw its representation of Cohen.

From CNBC:

President Donald Trump’s former longtime attorney and fixer Michael Cohen on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization, claiming his former company has failed to pay “fees and costs” owed to Cohen.

Cohen argues that the Trump Organization, where Cohen worked for roughly as an executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, had a “contractual agreement” to compensate Cohen and “to pay attorneys’ fees and costs incurred” by Cohen related to his “work with and on behalf of the Organization and its principals, directors, and officers.”

That work involves special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia investigation, the filing says, as well as “multiple congressional hearings.”

Cohen is scheduled to report to federal prison in May for a three-year sentence based on charges lodged by Mueller’s team and federal prosecutors in New York. Once a staunch loyalist of Trump’s, Cohen broke with his former boss after FBI agents raided Cohen’s properties in April 2018.

He pleaded guilty last year to committing campaign-finance violations related to hush-money payments made to two women who claim they had affairs with Trump years before he ran for president, as well as lying to Congress about details surrounding an aborted Trump Tower Moscow project.
