SHOW TRANSCRIPT

President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen is suing the Trump Organization.

In a suit filed Thursday, Cohen alleges the organization agreed to pay his legal fees associated with the special counsel's investigation and multiple congressional hearings. He says he's racked up millions of dollars in costs, but that the organization hasn't paid him back in full.

Cohen also alleges the Trump Organization stopped paying his legal fees after he made clear he would cooperate with investigations into President Donald Trump.

Cohen has been sentenced to three years in prison for arranging payments to women who say they had affairs with the president, lying to Congress and not reporting millions of dollars in income.
