Michael Cohen said in district court on Tuesday that he had committed campaign-finance violations at the direction of President Trump, an enormously significant disclosure that could spell major legal trouble for the president.

Michael Cohen's prosecutors granted immunity to David Pecker of the National Enquirer.
