Michael Cohen, United States President Donald Trump's former attorney, has returned to Democratic Party after he switched to Republican Party one and a half years ago.

Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis said that he took the decision after "putting his family and country first" and "distanced himself from the values of the Trump administration."

In March 2017, Cohen registered himself as a Republican. He had also served as the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee' Finance Committee, before stepping down amid a federal investigation into his business deals, Fox News reported.

The move comes amid the souring ties between Trump and Cohen over adult actress Stormy Daniels' legal action against the duo over a USD 130,000 non-disclosure agreement, in which the porn star had agreed to stay quiet about her alleged affair with Trump.

The contract, which was signed days before the 2016 presidential poll, also led to the violation of Trump campaign's finance laws, which Cohen had agreed later.

In August, the former lawyer had pleaded guilty to the charges in Manhattan federal court for orchestrating the payments at "Trump's direction".

The announcement of Cohen's sentence is scheduled for December 12 by Judge William H. Pauley and is expected to include jail time and a monetary fine. (ANI)
