Michael Cohen has become a household name in America, unfortunately alongside Stormy Daniels.
A New York attorney and entrepreneur, Michael Cohen is best known as Donald Trump’s personal “pit bull” having worked for the Trump Organization since 2007.
Cohen was Trump’s indirect replacement for Ruthless Roy Cohn, a notorious New York attorney that brought fear to the minds of any of Donald Trump’s opposition at the mere mention of his name.
Cohn died over complications from AIDS in 1986 (ironically years after working with Joe McCarthy to out communists and homosexuals).
Michael Cohen on the other hand is not only a seasoned attorney but also a successful investor in the New York market, having purchased an apartment building on the Upper East Side for $58 million – not bad for an attorney.
Cohen also owns 30 plus taxi medallions – the once priceless gateways to turn New York City streets into cab gold.
Clearly, Cohen comes from a family that values hard work (his mother was a nurse and his father was a surgeon after surviving the Holocaust) and the American entrepreneurial spirit which placed him within Donald Trump’s orbit.
But for those grasping at straws to tie Donald Trump to some Russian . . . any Russian . . . at any time, they found a very loose connection with Michael Cohen.
Several left-leaning publications have latched onto a report by Talking Points Memo that . . . gasp . . . found that Michael Cohen’s uncle Morton Levine owned a social club in Brooklyn that was frequented by Russian crime families in the 1970’s and 1980’s.
Wuuuut? No, Uncle Mort, say it ain’t so!
Yeah, seriously, the report of Uncle Mort’s El Caribe Social Club is feverishly making the rounds to PROVE that Donald Trump love Vladimir Putin.
Conspiracy-minded progressives assume that Cohen, who was a child in the 1970’s then whisked away to college in Washington, D.C. then law school in Michigan, neglected his education to hang out with Russian crime bosses Evsei Agron and Marat Balagula.
Their solid “proof” is that Uncle Mort passed on ownership to his nieces and nephews which included Michael Cohen.
Cohen reportedly gave up his interest in the El Caribe Social Club after Donald Trump’s election.
So that proves it folks, Donald Trump’s attorney’s uncle’s club allowed Russians to walk in the door and take a seat at the bar.
Next week, be prepared to gasp as you learn that Donald Trump once gave a left over Big Mac to a stray Siberian kitten that took up residence behind Trump Tower. /fakenews
In the meantime, Hillary Clinton’s approved sale of a large quantity of yellowcake (the bad kind, not the frosted kind) to Uranium One, of which some of it ended up in Russia goes unnoticed in progressive circles. Oh and the $145 million donated by Uranium One executives to the Clinton Foundation? Yeah, there’s nothing to see there folks, move along.
Comment, and rage below.
