NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has paid an unannounced visit to the federal courthouse in New York where he pleaded guilty a month ago.Cohen left the building at around 1:30 p.m. Friday, declining to say why he was there.

He also declined to comment on any discussions he’s had with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

On Thursday, Cohen confirmed in a tweet that he had met with Mueller and provided “critical information.”

Cohen is awaiting a December sentencing after pleading guilty to tax fraud, bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

During his plea, Cohen said Trump directed him to arrange payments to a porn star before the 2016 election.
