Müller ‘ s report pointed out that Trump’s behavior towards Cohen changed from praise to castigation after Cohen began cooperating with prosecutors after an FBI RAID in his home, office and hotel room in April 2018. The report said the evidence could grants “support a conclusion that the President used, in the form of positive messages in an effort to Cohen, not to cooperate, and then turned to attacks and acts of intimidation to deter the provision of information, or to undermine Cohen’s credibility, when Cohen began working with them.”

Cohen is scheduled to report to prison next month, although his legal team has claimed that he is still sorting through documents that could be of interest to democratic legislators to investigate the President.
