Cohen Fires New Shot at Trump With Suit for Millions in Fees

Cohen Fires New Shot at Trump With Suit for Millions in FeesThe breach-of-contract suit, filed Thursday, is likely to prolong the bitter feud between President Donald Trump and his former lawyer and fixer, who heads to prison in May. Cohen just wrapped up a series of appearances before Congress, where he impugned his ex-boss as a “racist,” “con man” and “cheat,” and promised to help investigators probing the president’s company. “The Trump Organization agreed to indemnify Mr. Cohen and to pay attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by Mr. Cohen in connection with various matters arising from Mr. Cohen’s work with and on behalf of the organization,” according to the complaint in state court in Manhattan. In addition to recovering millions, the suit could provide Cohen with another avenue to reveal documents he obtained from the Trump Organization.

U.S. fires tear gas to deter migrants making New Year's run at borderU.S. border agents launched tear gas into Mexico early Tuesday to deter a group of migrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border at Tijuana, according to a Reuters witness and the U.S. government. Clouds of the noxious gas could be seen wafting up from around the fence at the border, and one migrant picked up a canister and threw it back across the border into U.S. territory. Tijuana has become a flashpoint in the debate over U.S. immigration policy, which has been intensified by the recent deaths of two migrant children in U.S. custody and a partial U.S. government shutdown over President Donald Trump’s $ 5 billion demand to lawmakers for a wall along the border with Mexico.
