How Michael Cohen’s money trail could capsize the Trump presidency


The Stormy Daniels scandal and the Mueller Russia probe appear to converge around Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, as Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti alleges corporate and foreign payments to Cohen may have entered the same account used to pay his client $130,000 in hush money. Former U.S. Attorney Randall Eliason tells Ari Melber that corporations paying Cohen might be “sleazy and unethical and the Washington swamp, but not necessarily illegal”. Rev. Al Sharpton notes that Michael Avenatti has “identified Cohen” as the person to “penetrate” to understand Trump’s exposure.
