Michael Cohen’s Damning Admission 

(TheProudRepublic.com) – In a new damning new admission further compromising his stance, Michael Cohen, the disgraced former lawyer of Donald Trump, has confessed to stealing money from the Trump Organization – just as the former president’s so-called “hush money” trial involving Cohen might be able to begin.

See law professor Jonathan Turley’s comments on the matter in the tweet below!

Trump is facing 34 counts of financial fraud charges based on the allegations that in 2016, through Cohen, he “bribed” Stormy Daniels, an adult film actress, so she wouldn’t reveal publicly an alleged affair the two of them had in 2006.

The charges against Trump have been spearheaded by Alvin Bragg, the wokeist Democrat DA of Manhattan.

Cohen’s admission that he stole from the Trump Organization, the former president’s company, came on the witness stand on Monday, The Daily Caller reports.

The former lawyer told the court that he deceived Allen Weisselberg, the former Trump Organization Chief Financial Officer, in 2017 about a reimbursement that he had to receive for making a payment to RedFinch, a tech company.

Cohen received $50,000 from the Trump Organization through Weisselberg but admitted that he had paid RedFinch only $20,000.

“You stole from the Trump Organization, correct?” Tod Blanche, Trump’s defense attorney, asked.

“Yes, sir,” Cohen responded, as cited by ABC News.

The former lawyer asked the Trump Organization for the money to cover the RedFinch payment alongside the reimbursement for the $130,000 he had given to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election for a nondisclosure agreement.

According to the prosecution, Donald Trump falsified business records in order to reimburse Cohen for the payment to Daniels in monthly installments totaling $35,000 each, which were labeled for “legal services.”

Cohen remains the only witness claiming that the former president was directly involved in the payment to Daniels.

Last week, he told the court that Trump had okayed the plan for his reimbursement, with Weisselberg allegedly saying in front of the former president that Cohen was supposed to get $420,000 over the course of 12 months.

Last Thursday, Trump’s lawyers accused Cohen of lying by showing text messages revealing that a call he made to Keith Schiller, Trump’s bodyguard, was intended for a different purpose from what Cohen had claimed.

In comments on X, George Washington Law professor Jonathan Turley blasted the federal prosecutors for not charging Cohen over the theft from the Trump Organization.

“They had a man admitting to a major larceny but never charged Cohen,” Turley wrote.
