Donald Trump's ex-lawyer has taken to social media to say that he is working alongside American officials who are looking into the President and the First Family.

Michael Cohen, 54, worked for Trump as his personal lawyer between 2006 and 2018, acting as the Vice President of Trump Organisation, as week as Co-President of Trump Entertainment.

After no longer working for Donald Trump, Cohen has since unleashed blistering attacks on the former The Apprentice boss, often branding him a "con man" and a "cheat".

In recent days, Cohen hasn't held back when it came to speaking about the President following a large group of Trump supporters storm The Capitol building while Congress was sitting.

Taking to Twitter just hours after bosses at the social media platform permanently suspended Trump's account, Cohen tweeted to his 511,000 followers: "I have been asked and have agreed to cooperate with multiple government agencies to provide testimony on the wrongdoing by #Trump and the #TrumpFamily.

"I am doing this in large part as #Trump and family have tried, and thankfully failed, to destroy America's democracy."

When one follower dared to ask him how his former friend must be feeling after being removed from the site, Cohen didn't hold back as he exclaimed: "Know that #Trump relies on @Twitter to exist in the same way we require oxygen to breathe. He is losing his marbles right now!"

The move comes after House Democrats have allegedly asked the FBI to open a probe into Trump after a phone call was leaked during which he asked the Secretary of State for Georgia to overturn the election result in the state.

On Friday night, Twitter made the decision to permanently suspend the President's account after an "incitement of violence".

In a statement released by the social media platform, they said: "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.

"In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action."

While violence took hold of The Capitol, Trump used his account to share a video encouraging his supporters to head home, before saying: "we love you".

Following the result of the US Election in November 2020, which saw President-Elect Joe Biden take victory, Trump had used the account to claim the election results were "fake".
