Even though Michael Cohen is scheduled to testify this upcoming week before three different congressional committees, he still has plenty to say to federal prosecutors.
The fact that President Trump’s inaugural committee is being investigated, that’s thanks to Cohen. One person prosecutors are looking into is Imaad Zuberi, a California venture capitalist and political fund-raiser who donated $900,000 to Trump’s committee and tried retaining Cohen’s services.
In addition, it seems Cohen has discussed insurance fraud irregularities with prosecutors from the Southern District of New York.
Now, imagine there is insurance fraud. You know what happens next? Insurers will double their premiums or more overnight to the Trump Organization, or even cancel his policies all together. In addition, insurers are likely to start their own investigations.
Cohen is scheduled to start his three-year prison sentence in May.
A Subpoena Blizzard Will Start Thanks to Michael Cohen
What a week already for the President.
As promised by the Democrats, once they took over the House, they were going to roll up their sleeves and investigate President Trump, but they aren’t alone.
Now, federal prosecutors in New York inch closer to President Trump and his campaign with a subpoena for documents on his inaugural committee.
The subpoena from the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s Office requests documentation from donors, attendees at committee events, and donations from any foreign nationals.
The potential list of crimes being invested may include straw donors, mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, and campaign disclosure violations.
The lead prosecutor on the case heads the public-corruption division and is the same prosecutor that worked on Michael Cohen’s case, which leads one to the logical conclusion that Cohen provided information to the U.S. Attorney’s Office on where to start their investigation.
Prior reporting indicates that there was a recorded conversation between Michael Cohen and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former adviser to First Lady Melania Trump who worked on the inaugural events.
Per the recording, Wolkoff expressed concern about how the committee was spending the money it had raised.
Which again, raises the legal possibility of Melania Trump getting subpoenaed to make a statement.
To this day, we still don’t know how many recordings Cohen has, but at some point there was talks of almost one hundred recordings, a statement verified by Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani.
In addition, Maryland federal prosecutors this week also issued subpoenas on President Trump’s golf course in Scotland.
All this as President Trump has his State of the Union address tonight.
