Lawyer pre­dicts Co­hen to be in­dicted

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Brad­ford Richard­son

An at­tor­ney for adult film ac­tress Stormy Daniels says Pres­i­dent Trump’s long­time per­sonal lawyer Michael Co­hen will likely be in­dicted.

“I strongly be­lieve that within the next 90 days we’re go­ing to see the un­seal­ing of an indictment against Mr. Co­hen for a host of very se­ri­ous of­fenses,” Michael Ave­natti told CNN’s Jake Tap­per on Sun­day on “State of the Union.” “And I be­lieve, Jake, that it’s go­ing to be a sig­nif­i­cant domino that’s go­ing to fall in con­nec­tion with this.”

Mr. Ave­natti said there is a “whole host of crim­i­nal con­duct” for which Mr. Co­hen could be charged, in­clud­ing bank fraud, wire fraud and cam­paign-fi­nance vi­o­la­tions.

The FBI raided Mr. Co­hen’s Man­hat­tan of­fice last week and seized a trove of busi­ness doc­u­ments, emails and au­dio record­ings.

Ms. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clif­ford, claims to have had an ex­tra­mar­i­tal af­fair with Mr. Trump. She said Mr. Co­hen paid her $130,000 to keep quiet be­fore the 2016 elec­tion.
