Now that Donald Trump has left the White House, (at least temporarily), there are no shortage of politically-motivated lawyers and prosecutors looking to get a piece of him, and they are doing so with great haste. After all, Donald Trump has made it quite clear that he may try to get back into the White House again in 2024.
One of the most prevalent of these investigations comes from the District Attorney’s office in Manhattan, where the former President’s tax returns have become the latest spoils of war.
Now it has been revealed that Michael Cohen, former personal lawyer for The Don, has met with that investigatory body at least seven times.
Michael Cohen, the one-time personal attorney for Donald Trump, said that on Wednesday he met with prosecutors from the Manhattan DA’s office for the seventh time.
The meeting, which Cohen said happened over Zoom and lasted two and a half hours, comes as the sprawling investigation into the former president’s taxes and finances intensifies.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called the Manhattan DA’s probe a witch hunt.
Cohen says he spoke with lead investigator Mark Pomerantz, an expert on white-collar crime who put away mob boss John Gotti and other organized crime figures. Also on the call was Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, General Counsel Carey Dunne and Assistant DA Solomon Shinerock, according to Cohen.
Cohen, who is currently serving a prison sentence under home arrest for lying to Congress on behalf of Donald Trump, has been steadily cooperating with investigators who are targeting his former boss, perhaps in an attempt to clear his own name.
His previous perjury makes any information that he provides dicey at best, however.
