WHAT WE’RE WATCHING

FEE FIGHT – Lawyers for Michael Cohen, President Trump’s felonious ex-fixer, are scheduled to appear in New York state court today to defend a suit against the Trump Organization seeking indemnification and payment of $1.9 million in legal fees. Cohen says the fees—$1 million of which are owed to McDermott and the rest to other firms including Lanny Davis’—should be covered by the Trump Organization pursuant to some unspecified contract. He also says $1.9 million he had to pay as part of his criminal sentence should be comped by Team Trump. Marc Mukasey, who represents the Trump Organization, says no such deal was ever struck and is set to argue for the case to be dismissed. His firm is expected to square off in Manhattan against Cohen’s team from Binder & Schwartz and from Gilbert LLP.
