US President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen has received requests for information from at least six government entities since late February, according to a letter from Cohen's attorney to Democratic lawmakers, a sign of ongoing interest in evidence Cohen may have on his former boss.

The letter was sent by Lanny Davis on Thursday to the Democratic heads of four congressional committees asking that they attest in writing to his cooperation so far and the need to make him available to continue assisting with their probes.Davis said he hoped federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York would take that into consideration and file a motion to have his sentence reduced and postpone the start of his prison term so he can readily assist investigators.

Cohen, who is due to start a three-year prison term on May 6, is still going through a recently accessed hard drive with more than 14 million files, including e-mails, voice recordings and attachments from his computers and phones, Davis said.
