President Trump's former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen has sued the Trump organization for $1.9 million in unpaid legal fees stemming from his work during the Robert Mueller Russia collusion probe.

According to the court documents obtained by The Blast, Cohen and his lawyers claim the $1.9 million in fees were incurred while defending the Trump organization.

Cohen claims his unpaid attorney's fees "constitutes a breach of the Trump Organization’s indemnification obligations under the indemnification agreement."

In 2018, Cohen was convicted of lying to Congress and multiple counts of income tax evasion.

In addition, Mr. Cohen was ordered to pay or forfeit approximately $1.9 million as part of his sentencing arising from his criminal conduct which Cohen claims was at the behest of the Trump organization.

In other words, Cohen claims his criminal activity occurred as part and parcel of his legal obligations to defend the Trump organization.

The lawsuit claims once "it became clear that Mr. Cohen would cooperate in the Investigations, the Trump Organization took steps to thwart Mr. Cohen’s ability to receive amounts he was entitled to under the indemnification agreement and thereby breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing in its performance of the indemnification agreement."

Cohen claims he reached out to the Trump Organization on January 25, 2019 “and requested that the organization reimburse him for all outstanding amounts owed pursuant to the indemnification agreement.”

But he never heard back, according to Yahoo News.

Cohen was due to report to prison to start serving his sentence on Wednesday, March 6. But his report date was pushed back two months so he could testify in a criminal investigation into the Trump organization.

    Trump raw doggin these fools.
    They clamored for a seat at the table with someone they knew had a disturbingly low grade of character.
    And they assimilated into that realm of self interest for the sake of ambition & greed.
    End result?
    A very sore rectum.

    That priviledge ended when Trump fired him....so he can say what he wants....just like if a client die and he told you kill someone...you can tell it.

  • MsSapphire9800

    The attorney-client privilege protects most communications between clients and their lawyers. But, according to the crime-fraud exception to the privilege, a client's communication to her attorney isn't privileged if she made it with the intention of committing or covering up a crime or fraud.

    Ha Ha Ha Cohen The Coward is begging to The Donald once again. They all act like The Donald is their daddy or something. Good luck with this lawsuit traitor. The Donald will tie him up in court until he is too old and grey. Not one dime for him. Actually, The Donald should sue him for incompetence! Cohen is suing because he's a dam coward. Nobody MADE him do anything. "Don't do the crime if you cant do the time." Get your azz to prison Cohen. Oh yeah, why isn't Cohen's w i f e up on charges? She co signed all the fraudulent bank loans. She was facing 30 years till Cohen made up stories about The Donald. Funny, during his interrogation the other week, the first things he said were "I hope that my family will now be safe" or something to that effect. I wouldn't be surprised if the DemonCrats kill this fool and try to blame it on The Donald administration. They just that desperate. Cohen has also tried crowdsourcing his legal fees. A GoFundMe page that Davis (Clinton's buddy) set up for Cohen after he first pleaded guilty in August has collected about $215,000, including $50,000 from an anonymous donor. Cohen can kiss The Donald's azz dam loser. He also previously tried to get a pardon from The Donald. He ain't sh*t.
    What a loser

    "The attorney-client communications privilege and the attorney duty of confidentiality both survive the end of the relationship. Your attorney may only share confidential information about you or your case with your permission, "

    "The attorney-client privilege survives the death of the client, the U.S. Supreme Court held more than a decade ago in Swidler & Berlin v. United States, 524 U.S. 399 (1998).Aug 7, 2017"

    Attorney-Client privilege can be broken to prevent a crime or fraud that will cause damage to someone’s finance or property......also if the information is needed to create a legal defense for the attorney .... and so he is able to speak, legally.

  • Jethro

    Oh, what will I do now? ?

  • Wile E. Coli

    I didn't see him present any legal defense. He's already had that chance and was found guilty. Nonetheless.. attorneys that aren't sewer rats usually honor that commitment for more than 10 seconds.

  • Li-Wright

    The bill simply legitimizes his testimony. Damn! Trump still didn't pay him?

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Ok jemima

  • Kayke

    Then Trump’s crimes of fraud nullified the privilege.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Just like the rest...he's only sad & turnt out because he got caught.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "get your money up front." LOL! Ain't that the truth!
