Michael Cohen to plead guilty to lying during Russia probe

President Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen is expected to plead guilty Thursday morning for lying during the investigation into Russian collusion, The Post has learned.

Cohen was spotted at the Manhattan federal courthouse ahead of his scheduled court appearance.

Under a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller, he will cop to one count of making false statements in August last year related to Mueller’s investigation into the Russians’ interference during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Cohen has previously pleaded guilty to campaign finance fraud related to hush-money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both claim they had affairs with Trump.
