Trump's Per­sonal Atty Michael Co­hen Sells Apart­ment in Boss' Bldg for $3.3M

The Jewish Voice - - NEW YORK - By Charles Bern­stein

Michael Co­hen, the per­sonal at­tor­ney of pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has sold his apart­ment in the Trump World Tower for $3.3 mil­lion.

In 2001, back when the sky­scraper lo­cated near the United Na­tions build­ing was just com­plet­ing the fi­nal touches on its con­struc­tion, Co­hen and his wife Laura first bought the unit. This was be­fore Chen was em­ployed by Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion. Pub­lic records in­di­cate that he paid slightly over $1 mil­lion for the apart­ment. At 845 United Na­tions Plaza a three-bed­room was listed to rent for $12,750 per month, as re­cently as 2015.

Juhee and Vi­jay Jha­lani are the new own­ers of the apart­ment on the 15th floor. Records in­di­cate that the cou­ple al­ready owned an­other unit in the build­ing on the 10th floor.

Ac­cord­ing to The Real Deal, “Co­hen did not im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest seek­ing com­ment. Co­hen's listed home ad­dress on sales doc­u­ments for Trump World Tower is the apart­ment he shares with his wife at Trump Park Av­enue, a ho­tel con­ver­sion where the Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion launched sales in 2003. Then a taxi en­tre­pre­neur and oc­ca­sional real es­tate in­vestor, Co­hen joined the Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion as ex­ec­u­tive vice pres­i­dent in 2006, serving as Trump's per­sonal at­tor­ney and some­times spokesper­son. In Jan­uary, he an­nounced he would con­tinue to serve now-Pres­i­dent Trump in that role. He has since be­come a key fig­ure in spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller's in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Rus­sian med­dling in the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. In Au­gust, the New York Times re­ported on an email sent by Co­hen to a Rus­sian of­fi­cial dur­ing the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, re­quest­ing help in build­ing a Trump Tower in Moscow.”

Co­hen was sched­uled to have a closed-door ses­sion with the Se­nate Se­lect Com­mit­tee on In­tel­li­gence in Septem­ber, but the meet­ing was can­celed right be­fore. De­spite the fact that the meet­ing had not oc­curred, Co­hen re­leased a state­ment say­ing, “I em­phat­i­cally state that I had noth­ing to do with any Rus­sian in­volve­ment in our elec­toral process.”
