Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen has reached a plea agreement over an investigation into financial fraud, according to reports.

Mr Cohen is due to appear in federal court in New York at 4pm local time on Tuesday. He was earlier seen going into a building where the FBI has its New York offices.

The investigation into Mr Cohen has pulled back the curtain on his role as the president’s loyal “fixer”.

Earlier this year, he admitted arranging a $130,000 (£100,000) payment to quiet porn actress Stormy Daniels’ claims that she had an affair with President Trump.
