>Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal attorney, has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors, multiple sources familiar with the matter tell NBC News.
>Cohen will plead guilty to charges stemming from a federal investigation in New York. A hearing in the Cohen case has been scheduled at federal court in Manhattan for 4 p.m. Tuesday.

>The Cohen probe is being led by the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan, but any cooperation agreement would likely extend to other federal investigations.

>Cohen, who once bragged he'd take a bullet for Trump, hinted in July that may have changed. "I put family and country first," he told ABC.
>In addition to bank and tax fraud questions arising from Cohen's taxi business, federal prosecutors are looking into whether the hush-money payments Cohen arranged with women who claimed they had sexual encounters with Trump amount to violations of campaign finance law.

>FBI agents raided Cohen’s office and hotel room in April and seized documents and electronics. According to people with knowledge of the search warrant, agents were looking for information related to a $130,000 transaction between Cohen and adult film star Stormy Daniels, who allegedly had an affair with Trump more than a decade ago, as well as information about a reported payment of $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who also says she had an affair with Trump, and information about the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump was heard making vulgar boasts about women.

>The FBI has also monitored his phone calls with a pen register, meaning that the incoming and outgoing phone numbers were recorded but not the content of the calls.

>Several major companies say Cohen contacted them after Trump’s upset victory in the 2016 presidential election promising access to the new administration. An official with the pharmaceutical company Novartis said the company signed a one-year, $1.2 million contract with Cohen, and AT&T also said it has met with Cohen. AT&T confirmed in an email to employees saying it had hired “several consultants” in early 2017 to help it “understand” the incoming administration.

>Both Novartis and AT&T said they had been contacted by Mueller’s investigators.


Sounds like Choen tried to scam lots of people and bussinesses promising access to Trump if they paid him.

Wait this is an investigation about him committing tax fraud, not Trump, right? Why does the article even mention the quote?

You imply that the reporters responsible for this article had any motives other than to attack the Trump administration.
This guy is just another white-collar crook, but they're only covering it so much because he had relations with Trump.

>Why does the article even mention the quote?
I think it is because the mainstream media is grasping at the last straw they have at hand hoping that Cohen will testify that Trump is literally Hitler.
But also it sounds like Cohen have used his prior contact with Trump to scam others for money. Once he got the money and couldn't deliver what he promised, a Clinton Foundation type of back door into the white house, he started bashing Trump.
But I think it is mainly due to toe first reasoning. They hope Cohen will lead to Trump being impeached.

>Manafort found guilty of 8 counts; mistrial declared on 10 others

>Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been found guilty of eight financial crime charges in the first trial victory for special counsel Robert Mueller's team.

>A judge declared a mistrial on 10 other counts after jurors failed to reach a unanimous verdict.
>The jury deliberated for four days before announcing the verdict at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia.
>Prosecutors spent more than two weeks presenting their case as they sought to prove Manafort concealed millions of dollars in offshore accounts from the IRS.

Is this guy just another Jew lawyer or is he redpilled, like Roy Cohn?

ca39c No.167079

So we don't know what Cohen plead guilty to in the deal or does the article just not say?

a2df2 No.167084

didn't the tapes say Trump paid this on retainer? that's not campaign funds. Regardless fucking whores isn't impeachable and the worst you'd get for campaign finance shit is a fine like the one Bernie already had to pay or the huge one Obama got during his last election
