President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen filed a lawsuit Thursday claiming the Trump Organization broke a promise to pay his legal bills and owes at least $1.9 million to cover the cost of his defense.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in New York state court, claims the Trump Organization stopped paying Cohen's mounting legal fees after he began cooperating with federal prosecutors in their investigations related to Trump's business dealings in Russia and attempts to silence women with embarrassing stories about his personal life. It alleges breach of contract and seeks damages on Cohen's behalf. 

The lawsuit says the company stopped paying for his legal defense about two months after the FBI raided Cohen's home and office.

The lawsuit said that as part of his work for Trump, the company agreed to indemnify him for his company-related work. It said the Trump Organization initially lived up to that promise, footing the bill for more than $1.7 million in Cohen's legal fees.

1. Watch them eat each other

I hate this whole thing and hope it gets resolved sooner or later. These freaks are going to tear each other apart.

I think of all of you during these times. So crazy

4. Oh, the irony!

Wasn't Cohen one of the guys that had to tell tRumps various other contractors that they were only going to be getting pennies on the dollar for work they had done for him?

5. Yep. He'll probably bring that up as a "pattern and practice" allegation against Trump.

He'll show the breach was intentional. He's got the receipts to prove it.
