(CNN) — Prosecutors with the New York district attorney’s office interviewed Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen in recent weeks as part of their investigation of the Trump Organization’s handling of hush money payments, according to people familiar with the matter.

Officials from the district attorney’s office, led by Cyrus Vance, interviewed Cohen at the federal prison in Otisville, New York, where he is serving a three-year sentence after pleading guilty to multiple crimes including campaign finance violations tied to payments to two women alleging affairs with Trump a decade ago. Trump has denied having affairs with the women.

The article goes on to state the following:

The district attorney opened the investigation last month and sent subpoenas to the Trump Organization and American Media Inc. seeking documents and records relating to payments made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal to silence their allegations ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

The investigation is looking into whether the Trump Organization violated a New York state law involving false business records.

“On air, [CNN reporter Kara] Scannell said that the Cohen interview focused on ‘whether the Trump Organization violated state laws regarding the hush-money payments to women,’ namely Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels,” Law & Crime reported. “The prosecutors visited Cohen ‘soon after they subpoenaed the Trump Organization and American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, and interviewed Michael Cohen about this,’ Scannell continued.”
