As Michael Cohen continues to testify in closed-door sessions, new information and evidence continues to come out that most likely will result in campaign finance law violations for President Trump.
Cohen had testified that the payments to him from Trump were disguised on purpose to look like a monthly retainer agreement over a twelve month period. The checks were provided to the New York Times by Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis.
In total, eight checks have now been shown publicly, with two checks having been presented at Cohen’s hearing before the Oversight Committee.
Two checks were signed by Donald Trump Jr. which no doubt places him in legal jeopardy. Chief Financial Officer for the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, also signed the checks with Don, Jr. Weisselberg is believed to be cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Remember President Trump’s battle with Miami Congresswoman Federica Wilson and his phone call to the widow of Sergeant La David Johnson? That was on October 18, 2017. The same day he lost the Muslim ban in court and met with senators.
That’s enough for one day, but somehow, President Trump found the time to write Cohen a check for $35,000.
According to prosecutors from the Southern District of New York, Cohen received a total of $420,000.00 of which $130,000 was for the reimbursement of Stormy Daniels’ hush payment.
Another $50,000 was for Cohen’s attempt to manipulate online polls and $180,000 was to compensate for Cohen’s tax liability. The remaining $60,000 was a “bonus.”
