Cohen implicates Trump on several issuesThe sentencing memo filed on behalf of Michael Cohen, the ex-personal lawyer for President Donald Trump, appears to implicate the powerful man he served in some of Cohen's self-confessed crimes.

Filed by defense lawyers after Cohen entered two guilty pleas, the memo refers to Trump as the "client" or "Client-1" as it sketches Cohen allegations of Trump's role in campaign finance violations and false statements that misled Congress.

Contradicting his powerful client, Cohen's memo also depicts Trump as far more aware of and involved in potential plans for building a Trump Tower in Moscow than has previously been asserted publicly.

The memo urges U.S. District Court Judge William Pauley to spare Cohen from prison at a scheduled Dec. 12 sentencing. Cohen's conduct in both sets of crimes "was intended to benefit Client-1, in accordance with Client-1's directives," the memo emphasized.
