Update: Cohen pleads guilty to 8 counts including tax fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations


Recommended Posts

Do they have to announce to what he is pleaing, or could they keep it under seal with the argument that revealing the official charges might jeopardize other investigations? Because if they announced he plead guilty to breaking campaign finance laws, I'm sure the Special Counsel's office would be cleared out in short order.

There was something about $20 million in bank fraud connected to his taxi business fronts, I think? It wouldn't shock me if he's copping to something like that to keep it vague what exactly they have on him.

Clinton v. Jones, 520 U.S. 681 (1997), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case establishing that a sitting President of the United States has no immunity from civil law litigation, in federal court, against him or her, for acts done before taking office and unrelated to the office.

 

SCOTUS is going to overturn this rule

I know this pretty obvious, but it is worth mentioning anyway.

 

With a guy like Manafort legal observers basically said, "There aren't too many bigger fish than him. If Mueller is using him to get to someone else it almost has to be Trump or a member of his family".

 

With Cohen, you remove almost all doubt. If you give Cohen a deal, Donald Trump is very, very likely the bigger fish you are aiming for.
