The news just got worse for Michael Cohen today related to money that was funneled through a front company set up by Cohen. The new total is 4,425,000 there is now a proven connection between the president’s lawyer and a Russian billionaire. This is the other shoe dropping on this scandal that will sink the Trump presidency. The money was paid between October of 2016 and January of 2018. The question of the day is where is that money? This story gets worse as each day passes. At first, it was about the money paid to Stormy a measly $130,000 compared to the now half a billion in funds that were put into the Cohen’s bank account. The paper trail will lead investigators to the source of this money which will at some point involve the president.
The lawyer for Trump has entanglements with the Russians that began just before the president was sworn in. The Russians were accused of hacking the email account of Hillary Clinton and releasing the information to the public. This news made candidate Trump extremely happy, and he encouraged the release of more of Hillary’s emails. It appears that Russia helped Trump win the presidency through their hacking of Hillary. They now have information that is damaging to Trump himself. It should be understood that money and power corrupts those who only want those two things out of life. This desire is found especially in those involved in the political world. The president is now connected to an investigation that will bring down his administration both on morality and corruption issues. This story is like a slow-motion car wreck and the American people are in the passenger seat of the car that is being driven by the president.
