In a seven-page document he distributed online, Avenatti claimed that the same Cohen bank account was involved in transactions totaling more than $4.4 million and made from October 2016 through January 2018. Those transactions included $200,000 from AT&T and some $500,000 in deposits from Columbus Nova, a company linked to 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 on Tuesday said Vekselberg was not involved in the transactions.


Pay to play? Money laundering?

And really, Cohen couldn't set up a different LLC from the one he used to pay off the porn star? Just how dumb is he?

You know that the fbi stopped these Russians at the airport and questioned them and searched their devices? Then they let them go......
If they are criminals why did the FBI let them go??

It's well documented the man is an idiot. Maybe it will help his defense for all the money and back taxes he owes.

Is this the washed-up porn star lawyer talking again? Stormy is going to have to shake her boobs for the rest of her life to pay this show-boating lawyer's bill.

So capone wasn't a criminal until they got him for back taxes?

Your argument doesn't make much sense.

They may not be and none of this has gone to trial but your defense makes zero sense.

If I throw a bag of Crack out the window and get searched after am I innocent? Or did I not get caught with Crack.

Again no trial means not proven guilty. I get that. Just saying I don't think your statement is correct.

You don't stop and search a foreigner on a whim. They had a good reason. Now most likely he wasn't detained because he is not the target of the investigation. It might be perfectly legal for a Russian to bribe an American under Russian law. However the recipient of that money may be in legal trouble.

Michael cohen appears to be in deep crap. From Gowdy to Napalitano I don't see much defense of the man.

He isn't a pro like Hilary and her crew.

That is your case?

So they let capone go who was murdering 100's of people?

Again just pointing out how ineffective this argument is. I have no idea if those two guys were innocent or guilty. What was said, what deals were made or not made, or if they simply couldn't hold them do to laws based on the evidence obtained by the search.

"I don't know what Mueller was supposed to do other than what he did. When a prosecutor comes in contact with information or evidence of a crime, what are you supposed to do, other than refer to the appropriate jurisdiction?" Gowdy asked Chris Wallace

Her boobs best years are already behind her. That’s why she’s milking this media coverage at all costs.

It’s a huge leap of the imagination to believe, without evidence, that Vekselberg had anything to do with this or any other dealings of Columbus Nova, a company owned and controlled by Americans.

Well the first article does state that this allegation happen to appear after the AT&T/Time Warner deal was blocked. So this could be more smoke and mirrors than real fire.

I'm going to wait till more information comes out, but as of right now it's either a case of a criminally inept attorney, or a revenge hit by a scorned business. It's the timing that's off for me on this.

But where will the $500,000 come from to pay her selfish showboating attorney?

I personally get sick, and tired of hearing, 'it was the Russians!!!". The liberals have been using Mexicans, and other illegal invaders to sway the vote for decades.

What really puzzles me, and I do mean puzzles, is why this entire 'The ruskies' did it', is even anything; the illegal's being used to sway the vote, or heck, even dead people have been used for a LONG time.

Interesting to say the least:

Renova Group of companies is a leading, international, private business group that consists of asset management companies and direct and portfolio investment funds owning and managing assets in the metals, mining, chemical, construction, transport, energy, telecommunication, high-tech machine building, public utilities and financial sectors in Russia and abroad (CIS, Switzerland, Italy, South Africa and USA).
Renova Group is a stakeholder and strategic investor in a number of world-class companies such as UC Rusal, Oerlikon, Sulzer and SCHMOLZ + BICKENBACH.
The Group encompasses direct investment funds and management companies operating in a number of sectors, including energy (T Plus Group, Hevel), transport (Airports of Regions Holding company), public utilities (Russian Utility Systems), real estate (KORTROS Group), portfolio investments (Columbus Nova), telecommunications (Akado Group), chemical (Orgsyntez Group) and precious metals (Kamchatka Gold).
The strategy of Renova Group is targeted at the acquisition of assets in industries with significant growth and consolidation potential. The Group aims to invest in large projects where there is an opportunity to take up control and engage in managing such projects in order to drive value creation. Renova Group’s strategic focus is on partnerships and alliances that enable maximization of the effect of joint investments.


Interesting indeed, but I'm still left with the question as to what's going on. I know, I know, some of you will be saying Trump/Russia, but I'm saying it could be that or it could also be a company that's hitting back after getting sanctions placed on them, just like how AT&T/Time Warner is involved after the White House stopped their merger. So until more information is gathered, I'm going to be on the fence.
