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......

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

I see reporting now that the Cohen records are not missing at all from the database. Some official gave an order to segregate all the Cohen records in the Treasury system so not just anyone could get hold of them. Closing the barn door after the horse escaped, it seems. But there may be more records that didn't get leaked to Avenatti yet so it makes some sense.

There were reports about a week ago, not very widely covered. Maybe Stormy was on the libmedia shows flashing her boobs again so they didn't have time to cover it.

Notice they are just lifting links and quotes to far better known sources.

Political Wire: Cohen’s Financial Records Are Not Missing

“Records pertaining to the financial activities of President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen are not missing from a government database; rather Treasury Department officials have taken the highly unusual step of restricting access to them even from certain law enforcement agencies,” BuzzFeed News reports.

“The New Yorker reported that a law enforcement official — worried the information about Cohen’s banking records had been removed from government databases and therefore might be covered up — had admitted to leaking some of what was still accessible.”

If I have the timeline correct, that little bitch who leaked a few records to the press because he was so worried about records disappearing is even more guilty than it would first appear.

They can nail him to the wall for this if Snoozy Jeff at DOJ wants to. Mnuchin is likely to insist on it.

Good news!

Perhaps the prosecutor already has the SARs.....

They had them all along. They restricted them, fearing some little bitch would leak them.

And then she did.

I hope they throw the book at her.

"Gee, your honor, I thought maybe a crime was being covered up even if it wasn't so I felt entitled to commit a more serious crime of invading financial privacy while holding a position of trust. Was that so wrong?"

Sure, anyone is entitled to commit any crime to try to prosecute Cohen, who may have done nothing illegal at all. Or those records might have nothing to do with criminal activity.

But, no, you hate Trump and anyone can commit any crime they want, as long as they say, "I wuz just trying to convict that Orange Hitler who stole our WH".

What a hack.

Do you not care about president dip-shit's personal attorney selling access and influence to OUR government?

I think they will bring the same charges against him, regardless of this inconsequential leak of some of his confidential financial records.

I'd laugh if Cohen walked away scot-free and this little bitch got 5 years in prison. And then he sued her for defamation and she had to pay him all her earnings for the rest of her life.

I don't.

I WOULD care if we had a consistent set of laws, and had already imprisoned the Clintons, Obama, Terri Macauliffe, the Bushes, and a whole freak parade of influence peddlers over the years. I care so much I'd like to see all of them broken, stripped of their wealth and imprisoned.

So yes, I care.

But the care has been burnt out of me by reality. All of those criminals walk Scot-free, and hypocrites like you don't care. You just want to get my guy, Trump. So actually, no, I DON'T care anymore. The government is corrupt and unsalvageable. Influence peddling is the name of the game. The Clintons literally killed people. When I say I would like Trump to act like the Clintons I mean that - I think they are killers- they use their power and influence to literally kill off their opponents, which is why nobody dares oppose them. I really believe that. And I would like to see Trump behave exactly like the Clintons - SO MANY car accidents, suicides, Vince Fosters. It's just that now MY GUY would be murdering his political opponents, like the Clintons do.

BECAUSE we turned a blind eye to the Clintons when they did it, I am now eager to see MY GUY start killing off the hateworthy scum who seek to destroy him.

This is what happens when one side plays violent and vicious for so long. Folks decide that the game can't be won because the rules are broken, so they go violent. You've heard my comments on the Civil War before - because slavery was so evil, and the country was unable to fix it legally, I'm GLAD that we had a civil war that killed a million people to end it. It strikes me as JUSTICE. Same with the firebombing of Dresden and the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Once one side gets SO evil that they destroy lives and trample on them, they arouse my hatred and I want to see them dead.

Trump should fire Mueller and Rosenstein and Sessions now, and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate them, Obama and the Clintons. If they can be brought to justice under our system, that would be great.

Truth is, our system is so rotten with corruption I don't really believe that justice is possible under it. I don't really think I care anymore. I didn't used to hate the opposition, but I have come to see them as a mortal enemy.

So when I see you in their ranks, firing bullets at my guy, willfully oblivious to the utter hypocrisy of it all.

Well, that's why civil wars happen. No, I don't care if my guy breaks the law and murders people. I DID care, but the CLintons did it, and the Bushes did it. And OBama does it. Now my guy is in charge, and I hope HE does it, to YOUR guys this time. Because that's the way the game is played, until the civil war cleanses the palate.

Entendez-vous dans la campagne mugirent ces farouches soldats? Ils viennent jusqu'a dans nos bras, egorger nos fils et nos compagnes. Aux armes, citoyens! Formez vos battalions! Marchons! Marchons! Qu'un sang impur abreuve nos sillons!

Vic, you should take a pill and lie down for a while....

"...that's why civil wars happen..."

I disagree, that's how mentally troubled malcontents end up being gunned down during stand offs with law enforcement.

Not you too? Now you are a true believer in the "clinton body count"???

- Wait, so the Clintons killed people, multiple people, and "everyone" knows it but "everyone" is terrified so they keep their hands in their pockets and their mouths shut.....

Listen, I'm serious about this, you should gather up a "posse" of flamers from this chat-room, rent a bus, drive to Arizona and team-up with Arpiaio and bring those wrong-doers to justice. I'm sure stone would be up for a "road-trip"!

I think you all owe it to your country.......
