[Ed. – 2019 sure is a weird duck.]
In 30 days President Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is scheduled to report to prison to serve a three-year sentence for, among other things, defrauding banks and evading taxes on $4,134,051 in income between 2012 and 2016.
Cohen has now come up with a new scheme to avoid going to jail. In a letter to some House Democrats, Davis said that Cohen, who swore to tell the “whole truth” during congressional testimony on Feb. 26, 27, 28 and March 6, has now discovered more truth to tell. And Cohen will be happy to tell it to Congress if lawmakers can convince federal prosecutors in New York to “substantially postpone” his date to report to prison.
Davis told Democrats that “only recently” was Cohen “able to access” a computer hard drive which Davis said contains over 14 million files of “important documents.”
