Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration. In the days since, there has been much speculation about who leaked the confidential documents, and the Treasury Department’s inspector general has launched a probe to find the source. That source, a law-enforcement official, is speaking publicly for the first time, to The New Yorker, to explain the motivation: the official had grown alarmed after being unable to find two important reports on Cohen’s financial activity in a government database. The official, worried that the information was being withheld from law enforcement, released the remaining documents.

What of the missing SARs? From whom did the additional $3 Million come?

Who gave the order to remove the SARs from the database?

For a law-enforcement agent to risk everything to expose this coverup speaks to the seriousness of the matter and suggests that the leaker may have shared even more details with Avenatti.

Cohen is in deep shit.

What will he be willing to do to save his ass?

We know the answer......

What? How does that help?

Based on his/her experience in law enforcement, this individual believed that evidence of a crime was being covered up, and lacking other recourse, sent the evidence to Stormy's attorney who is already engaged with Cohen.

Just my analysis........

Whether the gambit succeeds or fails will depend on control of the political institutions, which will depend on voters.

Leaking information is a crime. Whether the fear of a cover-up legitimizes the crime or not is a decision for prosecutors to make. Prosecutors belong to the executive, and are supposed to be under executive control.

The net effect of this all may very well be the cleansing of half of government through aggressive, selective prosecution. The only question is whether it will be the Trumpist side of government, or the Democrat/Deep State Republican side.

I want to see the Trump side win, and put the other side in jail. The Democrat/GOP Establishment side began this war. They "invaded Poland", so to speak. So now it's war. They want to defeat my side through prosecution. Therefore, I want to see the reins of prosecution turned, and every one of the players on that side subject to a full inquisition, prosecuted for every felony, and sent to prison for the rest of their lives.

We can fight it out through the police forces, or we can have a more general civil war. We didn't start it, they did. But since it's going on now, it's imperative that we win it, no matter the cost. The other side is evil. They are all felons, and they all should be treated the way the Clinton Establishment treats the people who attack it.

What would make him believe that? The numerous files he did have access to showed nothing criminal, so why would the two he didn't have access to be any different?

"Since we can't find evidence of a crime, he must be covering up that evidence." Is that your theory?

Not his job, well above his pay grade. And illegal to boot. Nothing authorized this puny file clerk to decide he could do what he wants because he's a simmering little liberal simp who doesn't like Trump.

He'll be prosecuted. I'd guess he'll spend a few years in a Club Fed for this one. Maybe even a real penitentiary. The ultra-wealthy and the bankers will likely demand a harsh penalty because they don't want leaks of confidential bank info to become public. A lot of people would be very unhappy with their banks if they knew that the bank had filed a SAR report on them, unhappy enough to move their accounts elsewhere or even to start suing the banks over their standards for SAR reporting. That's the last thing these banks want.
