The papers give a timeline of how Cohen worked under a joint defense agreement with the Trump Organization and the President's lawyers - until Cohen made the decision to begin cooperating with the Mueller probe - documenting positive statements from the President and his own legal team.
"On April 26, 2018, in a call-in interview with the FOX News television program “Fox & Friends,” Mr. Trump stated that Mr. Cohen was a “good person” and “great guy," the lawsuit states.
But Cohen’s lawsuit says the tone of the President, and his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, changed abruptly, once it became clear that Cohen was going to be assisting the Special Counsel.
The lawsuit says just over $1 million is owed to Cohen’s original lawyer.
Cohen says what happened was a simple breach of contract between himself, the President, and the Trump Organization.
“Attorneys’ fees and costs subject to the Trump Organization’s indemnification agreement continue to accrue,” the suit states.
