The FBI is reportedly investigating a payment from a South Korean aerospace company to President Trump’s longtime attorney, Michael Cohen.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the man who served as a translator between Cohen and Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) was in touch with federal investigators about the arrangement “a few weeks ago.” 

The South Korean company said it paid Cohen $150,000 last November for insight on U.S. accounting law.

The translator, Mark Ko, told the Post that his role in the transaction between the two parties was “small,” but confirmed that the South Korean firm was interested in discussing accounting matters with Cohen. 

Ko said he was unsure if the federal agents were part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

KAI is in competition for a contract with the U.S. Air Force, but the company told the Post its payment to Cohen was unrelated to that bid.

    Cohen seemed to be really focused on influence peddling.
