Essential Consultants:

Cohen bank account was involved in transactions totaling more than $4.4 million and made from October 2016 through January 2018.

Korean Aerospace Industries confirmed to The Washington Post that it paid $150,000 to Cohen’s company.
The company is in contention for a multibillion joint U.S. contract with Lockheed Martin for jet trainers. Lockheed said Wednesday it was not aware of any connection between Korea Aerospace and Cohen.

Somewhere between $200,000-$600,000 from AT&T while Trump was publicly talking about blocking the Time-Warner AT&T merger deal.

At least $ 500,000 in deposits from Columbus Nova
An affiliate company of Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, who was sanctioned last month by the U.S. as punishment for Kremlin meddling in the U.S. election.
The company is run by Vekselberg’s cousin.

Viktor Vekselberg also attended Trump’s Inaugriation


he attended Trump’s inauguration, his spokesman confirmed at the beginning of the year. He was able to do so with tickets given him by his American cousin, Andrew Intrater, who is president of the investments firm Columbus Nova, an affiliate of Vekselberg’s.




Vekselberg crossed paths with other key Trump-related figures. In December 2015, he attended the now-infamous 10th anniversary gala for the Kremlin-owned RT channel, where Putin sat beside Michael Flynn,


Vekselberg’s Cousin, Andrew Intrater, who runs Columbus Nova for him also donated
$250,000 to the Trump inauguration fund,
$35,000 to the Trump Victory Fund,
and $29,600 to the Republican National Committee in June 2017, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks U.S. campaign donations

Novartis Pharmaceutical paid Cohen 1.2 Million. Just under 100k per month for all of 2017.
Sidenote that Novartis is being investigated in a huge bribery scandal of public officials in Greece right now.

If all of this was on the up and up, why was it all deposited into Cohen’s previously unknown slush fund shell company, Essential Consultants?

Cohen was the President’s Personal Attorney during this time.

And yes, he paid Stormy Daniels out of the same bank account that these payments were made into. Over 4.4 Million dollars that we know of so far.

You're a little late to white knight Michael Cohen with your lame ad hominem — all of the payments have been confirmed by the sources now.

Okay, WOW. $100k a month? There are top lobbyist who get half that a month from countries. But wait, it gets worse.



Just to be clear, Cohen was not a lobbyist whilst receiving these millions of dollars, but the Personal Attorney to President of the United States.

There is a reason Lobbyists are required to register.

And all of these funds went into a shell corp. registered in Delaware where Cohen's ownership was not public record.

The Shell corp was used as a slush fund for illicit transactions meant to stay secret like the Stormy Daniels payment.

Watching the Drain-the-Swamp crew defend this is mind-blowing.

Russia aint special, they are just one of the buyers when the President put's himself up for sale

But I thought the investigation was about campaign funds being used to pay her?

So which is it?


Cohen paid Stormy Daniels and other women hush money during the campaign out of the same shell company and bank account that Russian Oligarchs make deposits into?

All kinds of ways to "contribute".

Most importantly, President Trump's Treasury Inspector General will HANG this showboating porn star attorney for hacking and leaking Michael Cohen's bank records.

I love it!

Its a very simple issue; if cohen receiving half a million from a US company that may have connectioons to a russian oligarch is reason fro investigation, then surely Bill meeting Putin and getting half a million from a russian state bank is reason for an investigation at least on par with the cohen investigation.



Ex Presidents give speeches.
What was Cohen paid for again?

The payments you reference which Former Pres. Bill Clinton received were clearly and publicly documented in Financial Disclosure forms.

Cohens payments were hidden from the public in a shell corp slush fund used to make pay-offs for the President.

No doubt you are aware of the differences, but are rather willfully employing fallacious arguments.

BUSTED: Treasury Dept. Inspector General Opens Federal Probe of how Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer got Cohen’s bank Intel

As Thomas Paine notes, Michael Avenatti stupidly revealed his source, PLUS he implicated himself for receiving illegally leaked data.

Gonna be fun reading about Avenatti's disbarment hearings.

"hacking and leaking "????

The person that would be on the hook would be the internal bank fraud specialist who compiled the reports of suspicious activity.

Weird you think Stormy Daniels attorney "hacked" them?

And none of these documents are classified? They are just confidential by corporate standards.

And at the end of the day, there is a strong case to be made for the docs being in the public interest.

Good luck with whatever 3rd-world-tyrant fantasy you are imagining.

I think Daniels attorney will be just fine.

Cohen though? WOW...add to this that he kept TAPE RECORDINGS that were seized???

"receiving illegally leaked data"

Fill me in on how you think that works?

This isn't CIA. It is a bank.

It further discredits the investigative and prosecutorial ability of the federal government.

As soon as information is received by Uncle Sam, he just gives it over to whoever the hell wanders by.

Perhaps this should be public information...a court should decide that. Not Avenatti and is "unnamed sources".

As a taxpayer, "unnammed sources" = "i made this crap up so I could stay in the news". Because it isn't whistleblowing...its slander, libel, and obstruction of justice. Things that only seem to matter when it can be used to 'get Trump'

There has been public reporting on this.

The document shared was a SAR report. (Suspicious Activity Report).
It is created by a Bank's internal auditor.
This wasn't a leak by Government.

No, it's the Treasury Department. The person who leaked the files will go to jail. Not only are Suspicous Activity Reports confidential, but even the fact that one exists can't be disclosed.

As for Avenatti himself, I suspect his state bar association might have something to say about his highly unethical actions.

In his own Tweet:
"Why is no media outlet doing a story on the refusal of the Treasury Department to release to the public the 3 Suspicious Activity Reports that were filed concerning Essential Consultants, LLC's bank account? This deserves immediate attention. The SARs should be released now."

Thomas Paine made these replies:
"You wouldn't know about about SARs unless you have pipeline of feds providing illegal Intel. FINCEN data and breaches/access is a federal crime. 3 reports = 3 crimes. Congrats on outing your sources. @USTreasury should audit this FINCEN file immediately, see who fed this leach."

"Congrats on outing your fed source. Keep us updated on their trial: SAR confidentiality provisions clarify that both the SAR itself and any information that would reveal the existence of a SAR are confidential, and shall not be disclosed. 3 31 U.S.C. §§ 5318(g)(2), 5321, and 5322"

Except it is not made up? Not slander. Not Libel.
AT&T, Novartis, The South Korean Aerospace Company and the Russian Oligarchs company have all confirmed the payments.

You don't seem to find it in the Public's interest whether or not the Presidents Personal Attorney was receiving millions of dollars into a secret slush fund from companies with business going on with the WH as well as Russian Oligarchs that have been officially sanctioned for election interference.

We differ there.
