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.
Mr. Freidman has been Mr. Cohen’s partner in the taxi business for years, managing cabs for him even after New York City regulators barred Mr. Freidman last year from continuing to manage medallions.
Mr. Freidman, who was disbarred earlier this month, had been accused of failing to pay more than $5 million in taxes and faced four counts of criminal tax fraud and one of grand larceny — all B felonies. Each carries a maximum prison sentence of up to 25 years in prison.
Instead, he appeared in court in Albany on Tuesday and pleaded guilty to a single count of evading only $50,000 worth of taxes; he faces five years of probation if he fulfills the terms of his agreement, the judge, Patrick Lynch of Albany County court, said during the roughly 20-minute proceeding.
Early life and education Born into a Jewish family in Leningrad, Freidman and his family immigrated to the United States as a political refugees in 1976. He attended local public schools in Queens before his admission to The Bronx High School of Science, then went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Business from Skidmore College in 1992. He received his law degree from Yeshiva University's Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City and was admitted to practice law in New York and New Jersey.

You do understand that the European intel agencies were not spying on Trump or his team and in late 2015 they found out they were in contact with Russians they were investigating for whatever reasons they were at that time more than likely Russian mob money laundering
If Donald’s team had behaved and were not in contact with these people there would be no problem
What should the investigators do, ignore all evidence?
They had to pass it on to the American agencies as well
So I guess the new stragey is get anyone on any charge that is connected to anyone who may have any connection to trump.
