“A couple of very bad ones came out and it’s called pay-for-play and some of these were really, really bad — and illegal. If it’s true, it’s illegal. You’re paying and you’re getting things” – Donald J. Trump (August 2016)
Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer and attorney for the President Donald J. Trump is in a sea of trouble. If he ever thought he was in it, he is now, it isn’t enough that his hotel-room, his home and office was raided by the FBI, by agents sent by the Southern District of New York (SDNY). Therefore, the Special Counsel Robert Mueller are looking through the evidence and the findings, as the collecting of building a great case is going-on. Cohen and his clients should worry, that being Boidy, Hannity and Trump.
That is evident now, as the revelations are coming, the documentations are showing the reality of the dealing of the attorney. The personal attorney of Trump, Cohen has used his position as the closest partner of the President done business agreements to secure help for corporations, like AT&T, Columbus Nova & Novartis. All paid for him being their business consultant, however, what sort of insider deals he could offer them is questionable. If you ever wondered what money does in politics. This is the reason why you try to disconnect that. Since Cohen was paid by these companies to serve their interests. By being the middle-man to the President.
These deals was done early in the start of the Trump Administration, to secure their interests. None of these companies would have paid Cohen, his company Essential Consultants LLC or anything else for services, unless they would be rendered. This is clearly money under table to secure needed help and change from the government, if that was being Columbus Nova, whose used the connection to try to get Russian Sanctions gone, while AT&T wanted to lobby their merger deal with Time Warner. Clearly, the last one will be soured by this, but the Russian sanctions will be on standby, as this government are not wishing to follow a collective Congress to add on more sanctions on the Russian Federation.
However, you can wonder what the pharmacy company Novatis would get out of this, and if the big-pharmaceutical company would get anything out of hiring Cohen. Unless, it would to secure that the government wouldn’t stop the high prices and the lack of oversight, concerning the opioid crisis in the Republic. Then I would understand why the Administration has lacked any courage to find any real remedy, as the striking epidemic isn’t battled head-on.
Cohen, has been using a system that is well-known, that Trump himself attacked Clinton’s for, which is called pay-for-play. Where you pay for services and that gets delivered by someone as an elected official. This is what is now evident with the Trump Administration, as they have used Essential Consultation and Cohen to get deals and agreements to figure out ways to get their needed itch scratched. If that was a merger, lacking Russian sanctions or even keeping the opioid crisis at steady levels. Because of all of this is good for business. So Cohen and Trump get funds and the companies get possible vast fortunes by the political help.
That the AT&T calls it a big-mistake today, is just shambolic, they wouldn’t have disclosed this or said anything unless several investigations into the Presidency and his men wouldn’t have been a thing. That Cohen and Russian Probe is going on, that the Stormy Daniels are appearing and even the start of the fall of Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, which is also for some reason connected to Cohen. Who knows what sort of mess Cohen has not involved himself into.
Cohen is at a stormy sea, that is not only Avenatti who relentlessly finds ways to undress the king and his loyal servant. However, this will not go on forever, even as the madness of the problematic connections and inside dealings that Cohen has been involved in. We don’t know how much he has done and how much he taken from these companies. Not even knowing how much of the cut the President has taken. Because the greed of Trump is known and he has no scruples. That is why he has billed foundations and charity events at his Golf Courses to high-rates, because he only cares about the buck, not the people.
Cohen knows this, it is clearly, that the companies that has now been connected with Essential Consultant LLC will regret it. I called them the New York Gang when they came into power and don’t regret today, because the Trump Administration has been the most corrupt in modern history. The misuse of funds, the use of lobbyist for favors in the cabinet, by members, that even Representatives are making acts against using government planes for private travels. That shows the disregard of the use of public funds for private pleasure, that is if travel to Disney Land, Fort Knox or anywhere else, buying exclusive kitchen-wear or even securing all phone-calls in a specialized phone booths. This isn’t from a novel, but the reality of the Trump Administration. Therefore, that his personal lawyer and close associate Cohen would use the trick of “pay to play” isn’t that surprising, as the whole model of this government. Is that donors and PACs are steering the agenda, economically and also policy wise. Therefore, they are awaiting returns on their investment, in this instance their aren’t, but in others they have gotten points on their dollars.
Michael Cohen is in a massive storm, the sea is still vicious and if he will come easily to the harbor, that is unknown. What we do know, is that as the investigations goes on. His fate is uncertain. Cohen cannot say this is a easy wind and will go away quickly. That is far from true, because he had to have something profound in his capacity for the SDNY to raid his offices. They wouldn’t do that if he didn’t have something they couldn’t get otherwise.
Cohen, Trump will not save you, he will only save himself. You are in big, big, big trouble. In big cases running in different states for various of reasons. They will not just go away.
Even your boss said what you did is illegal, so you knew what your were doing. He did too and he accepted it. Because it was easy money. Peace.
