Michael Cohen (Trump's ex-lawyer)

Michael Cohen is now under investigation for possible tax fraud.

https://www.wsj.com/artic...1533658535

They always say "birds of a feather, flock together". I wonder if this is why Trump refuses to release his own tax records. It is hard to imagine that a man would hang out with individuals that are committing tax frauds, money laundering, etc., and apparently this is a very huge issues with these men, and not have committed some of the same crimes. It is hard to imagine that one would hang out with a criminal element (whether blue collar or white collar crimes) and not be aware of what these individuals are doing. Trump keeps denying his own involvement in such schemes, but the more people that are indicted, the more people investigated, it digs Trump in deeper.

Trump is so desperate and such a sick person that he will do anything to fuck this guy over. Trump would throw his own mother under the bus if it meant he could get away with something.

Three is obviously something in Trump's tax records that would upset his base. Must be something very revealing.

And I think he will throw him under the bus completely. He'll make claims that he didn't know anything about what Cohen was doing.

I think there has to be something in his tax records. I know someone commented once that if there were anything in his tax records that the IRS would have found it. But look at how long these guys were getting away with things and the IRS never picked it up. I think Trump is concerned that if he releases his records, someone will find those discrepancies. I'm sure he has lied on his taxes.

The plea agreement does not call for Mr. Cohen to cooperate with federal prosecutors in Manhattan, but it does not preclude him from providing information to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is examining the Trump campaign’s possible involvement in Russia’s interference in the 2016 campaign.

If Mr. Cohen were to substantially assist the special counsel’s investigation, Mr. Mueller could recommend a reduction in his sentence.

The guilty plea could represent a pivotal moment in the investigation into the president: a once-loyal aide acknowledging that he made payments to at least one woman who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump, in violation of federal campaign finance law.

Keep in mind, our genius president is on the record denying he ever had sex with that woman, Stormy Daniels.

From what I understood, it involves the payments to both Daniels AND McDougal. We'll see. But, oh boy. What does this mean for Trump in the long run?

It means he violated federal campaign finance law. It means he lied about it to the American public. It means his "attorney" Rudy Giluiani lied about it on his behalf. It means Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied about it on his behalf.

It probably means the Democrats sweep the House and the Senate in a couple months. At least, one would think so.

If the Democrats take the House, there is no doubt in my mind that our genius president will be impeached.

Cohen's ready to "tell the truth about Donald Trump," his lawyer says

Michael Cohen's attorney Lanny Davis said his client decided to plead guilty today because he's ready to "put his family and country first and tell the truth about Donald Trump."

Cohen pleaded guilty in Manhattan federal court Tuesday to eight criminal counts and said that "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office" he kept information that would have been harmful to the candidate and the campaign from becoming public.

Here's what Davis said about Cohen's plea:

Michael Cohen took this step today so that his family can move on to the next chapter. This is Michael fulfilling his promise made on July 2nd to put his family and country first and tell the truth about Donald Trump.

Today he stood up and testified under oath that Donald Trump directed him to commit a crime by making payments to two women for the principal purpose of influencing an election. If those payments were a crime for Michael Cohen, then why wouldn't they be a crime for Donald Trump?
