Michael Cohen used same company for payment deals for two women

Michael Cohen used same company for payment deals for two women

The Justice Department announced Friday that Cohen has been "under criminal investigation" for months in NY over his business dealings.

On April 9, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room and searched a safety deposit box and two cell phones belonging to him.

Castro added that if it's found that Cohen was dishonest about this, the entire story about possible collusion with Russian Federation falls apart. It also claimed Cohen was deeply involved in a "cover up and damage limitation operation in the attempt to prevent the full details of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation being exposed".

Cohen did not instantly respond to a petition comment. Cohen did not appear in court Friday morning and has not been charged with a crime.

A $130,000 payment by President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels may have amounted to an illegal contribution to the Trump campaign, according to Trevor Potter, former chairman of the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Before Trump's election, Cohen spent nearly a decade in high-profile positions in Trump's real-estate company and built a reputation as Trump's fixer.

McClatchy is out with a report about Trump attorney Michael Cohen that could prove to be a significant development in the Robert Mueller investigation.

These could include claims by Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

Prosecutors say they've set up what's known as a "taint team" or "filter team" to review Cohen's documents so nothing they seized is used improperly or breaches client confidentiality.

Prosecutors also say the president's own statement that he did not know Cohen had paid Clifford may negate any claim of attorney-client privilege on that matter.

After three separate hearings on the matter Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood said she did not have enough information to issue any ruling on that request.

The Southern District of NY prosecutors also heard from Trump Organization lawyers, who want them to throw out all communication between Cohen, the company and its employees.

I believe that the government is investigating whether there was, in connection with Trump's White House bid, a conspiracy to commit fraud and extortion for the goal of silencing potentially compromising sources - specifically, people in a position to portray Donald Trump as a womanizer.
