Michael Cohen Just Found An Old Hard Drive Full Of Evidence Against Trump
Just when you thought President Donald Trump’s week couldn’t get any worse, it does. With House Democrats pursuing Trump’s tax returns and financial records and Robert Mueller’s own team speaking up against William Barr’s attempted cover-up, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen is back in the picture with a bombshell at the worst possible time for Trump.
In a newly published letter, Michael Cohen says that he just uncovered an old hard drive full of “e-mails, voice recordings, images, and attachments” that he believes represent valuable evidence in exposing Donald Trump’s crimes. Cohen is asking that the start of his upcoming prison sentence be delayed so he can share this new evidence with prosecutors and Congress. Oh, and he says there are fourteen million files on this hard drive.
Last year, the FBI raided Michael Cohen’s office and residence and seized a significant amount of evidence, which was then shared with the SDNY and presumably with Robert Mueller. But Cohen is asserting that this hard drive contains evidence that no one involved has seen yet, and he is making no bones about the fact that he hopes this evidence will result in him getting a reduced prison sentence if it proves to be as valuable as he hopes.
For now, however, what matters is that he’s planning to turn over the evidence right away.
The timing is devastating for Trump and just perfect for House Democrats, who have spent the past few days massively ramping up their investigations into Donald Trump’s various scandals and crimes. This potential new boost from Michael Cohen comes even as it was revealed this evening that Capital One has been secretly cooperating with House Democrats for the past four weeks with regard to Trump’s financial records.
It appears Donald Trump is falling to pieces and his day of reckoning is finally upon us.
