Washington: Federal prosecutors in New York are examining whether US President Donald Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, committed tax fraud, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, citing people familiar with the investigation.
Cohen, who was Trump's personal lawyer, has not been charged with any crime. The FBI seized documents and files as part of investigations by federal prosecutors in New York stemming in part from a referral by the US special counsel's office looking into possible coordination between Trump 2016 campaign aides and Russia.
Moscow denies interfering in the US election and Trump denies collusion by his campaign, describing the probe as a political witch hunt.
Cohen did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment.
