Michael Cohen: Recent York’s Trump Lawsuit News Makes All His ‘Pain And Anger’ Price It

Published:

Former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen was jubilant Wednesday over Recent York Attorney General Letitia James’ announcement that she had filed a civil lawsuit against the previous president and his three eldest children over an alleged tax fraud scheme.

“I would like to personally thank [James] for acknowledging my participation and assistance in bringing accountability to the Mandarin Mussolini!” Cohen tweeted. “My journey to the reality has been stuffed with sadness, pain and anger. Todays announcement makes it [all] price it!!!”

In a news conference to announce the lawsuit, James noted Cohen had played a serious role in kicking off the three-year investigation, which she said involved a review of thousands and thousands of documents and interviews with 65 witnesses.

“Mr. Trump and his allies may say that these penalties are too harsh or that this is an element of a witch hunt,” she said. “I’ll remind everyone that this investigation only began after Michael Cohen, his former lawyer, testified before Congress and make clear this misconduct.”

James’ office is searching for to bar Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump from conducting business within the state of Recent York, in addition to making them pay about $250 million in restitution and limiting their access to loans.

Her office can also be making criminal referrals to federal prosecutors and the Internal Revenue Service, believing the Trumps to have broken federal law.

Cohen testified to Congress in 2019 that Trump grossly overstated his wealth before he was president, including inflating his assets in applying for a loan to purchase the Buffalo Bills NFL team in 2014.

He said Trump exaggerated his wealth when it served his purposes and in addition deflated the worth of assets to cut back his real estate taxes.

Cohen was once considered one of Trump’s closest advisers, but he turned on him after the attorney was indicted for facilitating a hush money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels to maintain her from disclosing an alleged affair with Trump lower than two weeks before the 2016 election. Cohen said this was done at Trump’s direction.

Cohen served time in prison after pleading guilty in 2018 to tax crimes, fraud, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress. Trump has not faced any consequences over the scheme.

Cohen has gone scorched earth on his former boss since, routinely speaking out against him and dealing with various authorities investigating wrongdoing by the previous president and his family.
