Michael Cohen SDNY sentencing memo recommends 'substantial prison,' and Individual-1 is in deep trouble

Ford’s approval rating would still be better than that 40%.

They’ll feel justified too. The right wing message is that this is all a big witch hunt for political purposes. The Democrats are trying to steal democracy.

I’m just here to ask for the title^Wnom de guerre Individual Negative One when Mueller asks for the deprecation of all the parades and ice cream-ish unicorn-ish deposement events.

Nice career…

Cohen is a licensed attorney and has been since 1992. (PSR ¶ 149.) Until 2007, Cohen practiced as an attorney for multiple law firms, working on, among other things, negligence and malpractice cases. (PSR ¶¶ 156-157.) For that work, Cohen earned approximately $75,000 per year. (Id.)

In 2007, Cohen seized on an opportunity. The board of directors of a condominium building in which Cohen lived was attempting to remove from the building the name of the owner (“Individual-1”) of a Manhattan-based real estate company (the “Company”). (PSR ¶ 155.)

Cohen intervened, secured the backing of the residents of the building, and was able to remove the entire board of directors, thereby fixing the problem for Individual-1. (Id.)

Not long after, Cohen was hired by the Company to the position of “Executive Vice President” and “Special Counsel” to Individual-1. (Id.) He earned approximately $500,000 per year in that position. (Id.)

In January 2017, Cohen formally left the Company and began holding himself out as the
“personal attorney” to Individual-1, who at that point had become the President of the United
States.

In January 2017, Cohen also launched two companies: Michael D. Cohen and Associates, P.C., a legal practice, and Essential Consultants LLC, a consulting firm. (PSR ¶ 152.) Both businesses were operated from the offices of a major law firm located in New York, and that firm paid Cohen $500,000 per year as salary.

So, in his own practice he earned about $75k a year. Then he sorts something for Trump and starts getting paid $500k a year with ‘the Trump organisation’ (hint - if the organisation you work for sounds like a wannabe mob syndicate, it’s not a good sign).

Then he ‘leaves’ the ‘organisation’ and enters into some weird and unspecified arrangement with a law firm where they give him office space and pay him the same amount he was being given by the Trump organisation - for doing what exactly? Why?
