Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen switches to Democratic Party

President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen returned to the Democratic Party on Thursday, the latest in a series of steps he has taken to distance himself from the Republican president following a bitter falling-out.

Cohen later registered as a Democrat until 2017 before serving as the Republican Party's deputy finance chair until June. The news was originally reported by Axios.

The change in registration came a day ahead of New York's voter registration deadline on October 12.

They said that the change was "consistent with what he told Stephanopoulos on July 2, that constituted his declaration of independence two days before Independence Day, with the key message to Stephanopoulos that now I put my family and my country first".

Cohen pleaded guilty to eight federal charges after he admitted he violated campaign finance laws by arranging hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal "at the direction" of then-candidate Trump.

"Pennsylvania hasn't been won for many years by Republicans, but every Republican thinks they're going to win Pennsylvania".

He since has cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Cohen is set to be sentenced December 12.
