Fox News Judicial Analyst Issues Dark Warning To Trump Over Michael Cohen

Michael Avenatti Stormy Daniels Attorney Stephanie Clifford Porn Star Donald Trump

WOW. Evidently, the personal attorney to Mr. Trump (NOT a lobbying firm) was actively soliciting clients and trying to sell access to the highest office in the land.

KAI reportedly paid Cohen $150,000, Novartis $1.2 million and Columbus Nova paid $500,000.

Avenatti was the first to reveal the Cohen payments from AT&T, along with payments from Swiss pharma company Novartis and Korea Aerospace Industries, an aircraft maker. Jimenez also met the president after he took office at a January 31, 2017 meeting in the White House. Two days after creating the new LLC, Cohen wired $130,000 to adult film actress's personal lawyer, and she signed a nondisclosure agreement the following day. Both Novartis and AT&T later spoke to investigators for the special counsel examining Russian interference in the 2016 election.

AT&T confirmed the authenticity of the memo, but did not comment further on the amount paid to Cohen's firm.

Cohen's attorneys refer in their court filing Wednesday to the public denial by Columbus Nova.

Avenatti has also alleged that a Russian oligarch "routed eight payments" totaling a half-million dollars to Cohen through a company in the USA named Columbus Nova in 2017.

After Trump's election, corporate money started flowing into Essential Consultants.

According to STAT News, which interviewed a Novartis employee on the condition of anonymity, the relationship between Novartis and Cohen began in 2017 when the president's attorney "reached out to Novartis's then-chief executive officer Joe Jimenez, promising help gaining access to Trump and influential officials in the new administration".

One person with ties to the campaign described being approached by a top tier tech company after the election with an offer: They would pay this person $50,000 a month to make introductions to members of Trump's team.

"In response, Putin said, 'Donald can spend allowance however he wants'". He denies having an affair with Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Called Columbus Nova, Vekselberg's firm paid $500,000 to Cohen's DE entity, which, as it had turned out, was used for hush money payments, including the payment made to Stormy Daniels.

In the wake of Tuesday's revelations about millions of dollars being paid by several companies to Michael Cohen, which looked an bad lot like selling access to Trump, we have the first report of an inside source at one such company, Novartis, being approached by Cohen for that exact quid pro quo exchange.

Under federal law, financial institutions must monitor their customers' activities and report suspicious transactions to the government.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators have questioned Vekselberg about the payments that his United States affiliate made to Cohen, a source familiar with the matter has told CNN. But that information is supposed to remain confidential. In total, he alleged, more than $4 million passed through the account in 2017 and early this year, including payments from entities associated with major companies such as AT&T and the drug company Novartis.
