In an effort to hurt Trump, Michael Cohen his former attorney, revealed recordings he made without his client’s knowledge.
The media was excited to get a hold of this material, it produced nothing (yet again).
But it did help put Michael Cohen in the spotlight.
The turncoat has been feeling the squeeze after investigators ransacked his offices.
Now it looks like he’s in deep.
From the Wall Street Journal:
In previously unreported developments, federal prosecutors in New York are examining whether Mr. Cohen committed tax fraud, people familiar with the investigation said.
Federal authorities are assessing whether Mr. Cohen’s income from his taxi-medallion business was underreported in federal tax returns, one of the people said. That income included hundreds of thousands of dollars received in cash and other payments over the last five years, the person said.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office have been investigating Mr. Cohen for bank fraud, campaign-finance violations and other possible crimes related to his personal business interests…
Mueller’s witch hunt sicced the FBI on Cohen’s office. They raided his documents and files in a shocking breach of justice.
Just what were they looking for? Evidence to back their bogus Russian collusion narrative.
Of course, that was always a fairy tale. But it’s clear Mueller was looking for dirt to frame Trump. Cohen, in handing over tapes that should never have existed, was happy to throw his former client under the bus.
Yet again, the swamp did not find evidence that Trump did anything wrong. To satisfy their rage, they are devouring Cohen, as they did Manafort.
These men seem to have been up to no good all on their own. Trump had nothing to do with it. The only “crimes” the president committed was simply knowing these men.
Because Mueller cannot take down Trump, he is finding anything he can against these former associates. Maybe, just maybe, Cohen will feel the pressure to betray the president (more than he already has).
But because there is nothing that proves Trump did anything wrong, Mueller will settle for Cohen and his tax fraud scandal.
The real question is: when is America going to be free of Mueller’s bogus probe?
