Title: Missing Files Motivated the Leak of Michael Cohen’s Financial Records

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.

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.

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".

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!

Yes, I do think that the people around the Clintons have killed people.

I know that Bill Clinton is a rapist and a serial sexual harasser, and got away with it. I know that Bill and Hillary engaged in an international bribery scheme that brought them hundreds of millions of dollars, and got away with it. I know that the FBI bent over backwards to exonerate Hillary Clinton despite the fact she had a server in her house full of classified information.

We could discuss at length the relative plausibility of these things that you know, and we could also draw some parallels with the actions of your president....

But, that doesn't prove that the clintons were directly responsible for killing anyone. I do not believe that "everyone is terrified of them".

Personally I have no use for either clinton, and if they committed crimes, I would be pleased to see them properly punished.

#49. To: Jameson (#48)

But, that doesn't prove

Proves it to me. Just as the aspects of Trump prove to you various things about him.

Politics is a dirty, corrupt business, but in the end we have to have a government. I care what that government DOES much more than I care about the moral deficiencies of the people who pull its levers.

There are key policies that Trump has pushed that are contrary to what any Democrat wants, and that are also contrary to what the traditional Republicans want. Trump is more like Perot than he is like Reagan or either of the Bushes. And I agreed with Perot more than I agreed with Reagan, either Bush or any of the Democrats.

I want Trump to succeed because he advances my agenda. Every Democrat who closed ranks around the corrupt Clintons and power-abusing Kenyan-born Obama, and every Republican who closed ranks around the Bushes, did so for the same reason: they wanted certain POLICIES out of those men and their party, and they were willing to tolerate and overlook that abuses of morality and of law in order to, in the main, get what they wanted.

I'm no different, no more moral, and no less. When those guys morally grandstand, I just laugh - the hypocrisy is palpable.

I don't take the high moral ground regarding Trump. He's an immoral guy in a lot of ways. I simply don't CARE. He is rapidly and massively de- regulating the country, and that is FAR, FAR more important to me than any aspect of his personal character. Deregulation saves the whole economy trillions, over time, and that saves lives. Controlling the border saves lives directly, and saves lives indirectly, by saving jobs and preserving families. Making peace in Korea and establishing better relations with Russia will save money and lives.

Who is going to do those things? ANY Democrat? No. Any of the major Republicans? No.

So I want Trump in power. And if he is dishonest, corrupt, a tax evader and criminal? Same old same old. That's how politicians are. If he is getting done the big things that need to get done, then I want him protected and unfettered. This is why our Presidents cannot be prosecuted even for crimes. They have to be impeached and removed first. Running the country in crisis is more important than literally ANY law. If the President shoots some official through the head during a national crisis, he cannot be - and must not be - arrested, because national survival in the immediate term is more important than law enforcement, and more important than obtaining immediate justice for the life of one man.

Impeach him and remove him, or wait until his term in office is over, then prosecute him. But when he's doing what I want him to do, leave him alone to get it done.

Clinton was doing a lot of things I didn't like, some I did. But he was President. I thought that impeaching him for lying over a consensual blowjob was absurd, and so did the bulk of the American people. We were right about that. And we're right about Trump. Leave him be. He has a job to do.

I haven't seen more info about the SARs leaker yet. I did find a paragraph on penalties for leaking SAR documents.

DailyBeast: "SARs contain warnings not to disseminate, Sheil added. If convicted for disclosing a SAR, someone could face a maximum five years behind bars and/or a $250,000 fine."

They're making it sound like more info was included to Avenatti than just SAR info. Some experienced people in the field think it was someone from the southern district of NY (SDNY) US attorney's office. But who does Avenatti have contacts with at SDNY?

“I think somebody from the SDNY is leaking,” said Robert Barnes, a Las Vegas-based trial attorney who’s taken Avenatti to task on Twitter. “The degree to which Avenatti had details implicates them badly.” Barnes pointed out that Avenatti was reportedly spotted dining with former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in late March. He added that Cohen could potentially sue Avenatti for invasion of privacy by illegal disclosure of banking information.

Maybe. As with Manafort, if the charges are entirely unrelated to Trump and his campaign, I don't think he'll pardon them. Manafort, for instance, was already quite guilty of money laundering and apparent tax evasion going back 15 years, long before he worked for Trump for a few months.

Manafort's and Cohen's (rather small) chances for any pardon will diminish sharply if they provide a single piece of evidence or information to use against Trump.

Cohen is actually a really lousy and scurrilous lawyer. Graduated from what is widely considered the worst law school in the country, a history of shady behavior with shady characters. I think there is plenty of non-Trump violations by Cohen that they can nail him for all of those. Perhaps it would have happened even without him being Trump's lawyer but Cohen is not a proper professional lawyer by anyone's standard.

Trump is far more likely to reserve pardons for figures like Kushner or Don Junior.

Cohen attended Thomas M. Cooley Law School. A recent Politico article said it may be the worst, probably because Cohen went there.

According to DailyCaller's list of the 10 worst law schools in 2012, Thomas M. Cooley Law School is only the 7th worst law school.

The criteria for "worst" is practical. Doesn't mean that the graduates from those schools don't know the law, or are stupid, or are bad lawyers. It means that it's hard to get jobs from there, and that they can be expensive. Certainly they are not selective, but that doesn't mean that the lawyers don't know the law either.

Sure, if one is going to be pragmatic, then the BEST law school to go would be the absolutely highest prestige law school to which one can be admitted, because that admission will almost certainly mean a very high paying job afterwards.

My advice to anybody considering law school would be to strive to be in the position where you're choosing between Yale, Harvard, Columbia, Stanford and Chicago. If you get into all five, decide where you want to live.

California? Stanford. The Midwest? Chicago. New York? Columbia. Washington DC? Mmmm. Any of those 5 will work (as will many others). Depends on what you want to do down there.

If you want to be a federal judge, Yale is your best bet.

If you want to work on Wall Street, Harvard and Columbia are your best bets.

If you want to work in Silicon Valley, Stanford is best.

If you want to work overseas, Columbia is best.

Harvard always has the top name recognition everywhere. It's a great school. Columbia is best connected with the business world. It's a great school. Yale has produced so many politicians and Supremes. It's a great school. Stanford is the California Ivy. It's a great school. And Chicago is Law and Economics par excellence, and its graduates are employable anywhere.

That's the tippy top end. But that's not for everybody, and just because somebody went somewhere else doesn't mean s/he's a lesser lawyer.

There are plenty of great military officers who didn't go to West Point, Annapolis, Air Force, Coast Guard, King's Point, VMI or the Citadel.

NYTimes, now:

"A significant business partner of Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer, has quietly agreed to cooperate with the government as a potential witness, a development that could be used as leverage to pressure Mr. Cohen to work with the special counsel examining Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Under the agreement, the partner, Evgeny A. Freidman, a Russian immigrant who is known as the Taxi King, will avoid jail time, and will assist government prosecutors in state or federal investigations, according to a person briefed on the matter."

Congress has to compel Rosenstein, Mueller and Sessions to provide the documents they have demanded NOW, and the President should up the ante by declassifying those documents.

Then, if Sessions or Rosenstein or Mueller delay in compliance more than a couple of days, Trump should summarily fire them for insubordination, and Congress should prosecute them for contempt.

They cannot continue to play their game if they can't keep secrets, and the President has the absolute and unchallengeable right to decide what IS a secret.

Trump isn't a lawyer. He needs lawyers who will play the meanest of hardball. Giuliani is a good pick.

I see many others saying the same thing. Otherwise, this drags into the midterms and well beyond it.

It's obvious that most of the embedded 0bama/Xlinton/Bush types at key positions in CIA/FBI and some at NSA must be fired, sooner or later. And replaced with Trump appointees.

They will be ready to run to a court on some legal pretext to stop him. Don't think they haven't considered the options.

I think that Trump has decided he is going to win the election first. By doing so, in the face of all of the static, he will have a mandate to do what he does next.

The Republican Party, for the most part, has realized that Trump IS the new boss, and their own fate is tied to him. Also, McCain is dying, and HW Bush is dying - the old guard are disappearing. W is a stooge - HE can't lead the charge against Trump. Jeb! tried to, but he lost to the margin of error and really is a Carteresque failure figure. Romney blew himself up going after Trump. That leaves Lindsey Graham, and nobody is going to follow Lindsay Graham - he's a weak-chinned milquetoast.

Trump won, and the Never Trumpers lost. But Trump has an agenda, and to get it through, he needs an obedient Congress.

Trump knows that if he goes after Mueller and Rosenstein and the never- Trumpers NOW, the Democrats will ally with the Bush wing and strategically lose the election to get him impeached.

But if Trump waits, negotiates peace with North Korea and a good deal with China, and the jobs keep flowing and the wealth keeps rising, the Trump GOP will win the election, and the Never Trumpers will say their last political goodbyes at McCain's and HW's funeral. "W" is speaking up, but he's essentially the two-term Republican Jimmy Carter, and everybody but the Bushbots knows it.

Come out of the elections with a win, and Trump moves to end all of the nonsense, and make the question be this: does the Mueller wing surrender quietly, having been beaten politically, like the Republican Party and Kim Jong Un, or does the Mueller wing go Iranian, and then have Trump fire off pardons of everybody they've indicted, and sic a special prosecutor on the FBI, Mueller, Comey, Rosenstein, the Clintons, Obama, and use the full prosecutorial power of government-with-a-mandate to actually start breaking lives and putting people in jail?

Right now, the Mueller investigation is a foil, a political albatross around the neck of the Left and the Never Trumpers. Trump is gaining popularity BECAUSE OF the prosecution, just like Clinton did after he was impeached.
