Clip: 05/09/2018 | 5m 27s

Payments totalling more than $4 million were made to a shell company set up by Michael Cohen, President Trump's personal attorney, and included about $500,000 from a U.S. company with ties to a Russian oligarch who is close to Vladimir Putin. That shell company was also used to pay hush money to adult film actress Stephanie Clifford. John Yang talks to Rosalind Helderman of the Washington Post.
