Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal lawyer and fixer, funneled millions of dollars through a shell company, starting in late 2016. Some of the money was used to silence Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress suing Trump for defamation. But a Russian oligarch also contributed to the shell company, among other American businesses.

NPR's Ryan Lucas (@relucasz) joins Here & Now's Robin Young to explain how the payments have raised new questions about Cohen and his ties to Russia.

This segment aired on May 9, 2018.
