Trump ‘s own lawyer Michael Cohen, is, reportedly facing up to 30 years in prison per reports. According to numerous reports, and one particular official, Cohen is being investigated for bank fraud; campaign violations, and felony fraud related to a fake home equity loan.
Let’s discuss. Investigators say that Cohen is under. investigation partially for his $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her affair with Trump. That payment, perhaps, has now come back to haunt both Trump and Cohen. Cohen, apparently, took out a massive home equity line of credit to pay Daniels the large sum of money. The consequence? A felony charge carrying up to 5 years in prison on top of the massive potential consequence he’s already facing.
This is where it gets hairy. Most of what we know so far, ehum, surrounds Stormy Daniels and his previous claim that Cohen. used his own money to fund the payment made to Daniels. Now, it looks like he was actually telling the truth. Sources say that the feds did indeed find evidence to indicate that Cohen fraudulently opened a home equity line (at least twice). to pay for Daniels’ payment to keep quiet. Cohen, of course, allegedly denies any wrongdoing.
The seizures also included one big notable place: NBC Studios inside Rockefeller Plaza. Cohen ‘s office, which wasn’t known to many, was actually inside NBC Studios just above the famed television studio home to some of the biggest morning shows.
