How is Michael Cohen's 'Truth Fund' faring?

How is Michael Cohen's 'Truth Fund' faring?

Cohen also admitted to arranging a $150,000 payment through American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, which purchased yet did not publish former Playboy model Karen McDougal's story alleging an affair with Trump before the election.

The development could lead to a widening of inquiries into the president's finances, while also threatening to drag in close family members.

Prosecutors in Manhattan, New York, are weighing possible criminal charges against the Trump Organization and two unnamed senior officials at the company, The New York Times reported on Thursday night.

For Michael Cohen and Donald Trump, it's always been about money and loyalty.

"He's less powerful in these relationships now than he was before he became president".

A chief focus for investigators was Cohen's role in making payments during Trump's campaign to women who claimed they had sex with Trump, and whether campaign finance laws were violated.

These revelations of guilt come on top of those of others who spent time in Trump's orbit, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who admitted in a December plea deal that he lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contact with Russian officials.

Moved by this, God intervened and ordered angel Jibra'il to place a goat for sacrifice, instead of Ibrahim's son. The Prophet and his wife traveled to Mecca, where they planned to perform the deed.

According to court filings, Cohen in early 2017 submitted an invoice to Weisselberg seeking to be repaid for legal expenses and payments he said he made on Trump's behalf. Federal prosecutors are considering charges against the Trump organization in connection to its accounting of a payment Cohen said he made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, reports The New York Times.

Weisselberg, the 71-year-old Trump Organisation CFO, is intimately familiar with Trump's business dealings, having overseen his corporate ledgers through his rise in the NY real estate world and his worldwide dealings in the years before he launched his presidential bid.

In just four days since the president's former personal lawyer and fixer pleaded guilty to eight felonies, he has raised more than $155,000 from almost 3,000 donations through a GoFundMe page asking for help with his legal bills as he goes through a "journey to tell the truth about Donald Trump".

Asked if he would fire Mueller if that were to happen, Trump responded: "I can't, I can't answer that question because I don't think it's going to happen". The effect of their alleged conspiracy against campaign finance laws was to defraud American voters, who were prevented from learning potentially relevant information ahead of Election Day 2016. They argued that the president was not directly implicated, even though Cohen said in court that he and Trump had coordinated. "Witch Hunt!" - tweet Wednesday.

Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort was convicted of tax evasion.

Manafort faces another trial in Washington next month on separate charges, including conspiracy to defraud the United States, money laundering and witness tampering.
