Cohen has extensive business and family ties to Ukraine and is under investigation by the FBI for links to the Kremlin, which he has denied. In February 2017, Cohen reportedly delivered a plan to the White House for lifting sanctions against Russia. In crafting the plan, he partnered with the Russian-American businessman Felix Sater and the pro-Putin Ukrainian politician Andrii V. Artemenko. Sater also contacted Cohen regarding the failed attempt to develop a Trump Tower in Moscow. Both the House Intelligence Committee and the Senate Intelligence Committee have shown interest in Cohen during the course of the ongoing Russia investigations. Cohen has publicly denied any involvement in collusion with Russia during the 2016 campaign. He does not have any current public titles linking him to Trump or the White House.
