Cohen is asking for $1.9 million in unpaid fees and another $1.9 million for money he had to forfeit because of his criminal convictions on behalf of the Trump org.
President Donald Trump's former longtime attorney and fixer Michael Cohen on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Trump Organization, claiming his former company has failed to pay "fees and costs" related in part to special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
Cohen argues in New York state Supreme Court that the Trump Organization, where Cohen worked for roughly a decade as an executive vice president and special counsel to Trump, had a "contractual agreement" to compensate Cohen and "to pay attorneys' fees and costs" incurred through his work "with and on behalf of" company officials.
That work involves Mueller's ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and possible Trump campaign collusion, as well as "multiple congressional hearings," the filing says.
Cohen now says he has "incurred millions of dollars in unreimbursed attorneys' fees and costs" which continue to pile up.
