Evgeny Freidman, a business partner of President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, is complying with the government to aid prosecutors involved in state or federal investigations, a new report Tuesday says.
Freidman, the so-called “Taxi King,” is a Russian immigrant and has been an associate of Cohen’s in the taxi industry. On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to a single count of evading $50,00 worth of taxes, agreeing to help prosecutors as part of his plea deal, according to the New York Times.
The Times reports that Freidman was disbarred in New York on May 1 and had faced four counts of criminal tax fraud and one grand larceny charge.
The report comes after Cohen’s home and office were raided by the FBI in April, where agents seized computers, phones, and other materials of Cohen’s.
