image for Michael Cohen implicated Trump in at least 11 different felonies

Cohen said Trump was told in advance of the WikiLeaks dump by Trump’s longtime confidant Roger Stone, and that Trump responded: “Wouldn’t that be great?”.

Cohen said his former boss directed him to organize hush-money payments during the campaign to women who claimed that they’d slept with Trump.

Cohen said Trump knew exactly what he was giving Cohen money for: to silence the women and keep voters from finding out about Trump’s affairs.

Cohen and Democrats in Congress have accused Trump of attempting to intimidate him out of testifying against Trump by making threats against Cohen’s family.

Trump has said that Cohen’s father-in-law ought to be investigated, and accused Cohen of making up things about Trump in an attempt to shield his own family.

He added that Trump knew exactly what those payments were for — and that Trump even mentioned them while giving Cohen a tour of the Oval Office.

Cohen said Trump used his charity’s money to buy a painting of himself — a potentially improper misuse of charitable funds. »
