Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman said on MSNBC that the Michael Cohen investigation would provide evidence of the Trump/Russia conspiracy.
Akerman said, “This is the reason that the White House wanted to get rid of this search warrant, why they attacked the search warrant. What these allegations — what this evidence is going to do is totally undercut congressman Nunes’s whole attack on Christopher Steele and the dossier he put together. It’s going to provide evidence of conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians and the break-in to the Democratic National Committee headquarters. And the hacking of all of those e-mails. And the use of those e-mails to get Trump elected. I mean all of this starts to fit together. Even Rudy Giuliani basically gives us the best point here. Cohen just did these things. He buried things.”
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) should be sweating bullets right now. He has built Trump‘s defense of discrediting the Steele Dossier. The reason why the White House and Trump are freaked out is that Michael Cohen is the connection between the Trump campaign, Trump‘s businesses, and the Stormy Daniels case. Michael Cohen is the link that places all the Trump scandals under the same roof. Michael Cohen can connect the dots on the TRump Russia conspiracy. The evidence in the Cohen investigation could expose Trump‘s payouts to Stormy Daniels and other women.
Cohen is Trump‘s biggest problem because he likely held the evidence that proves the Trump/Russia coordination. Michael Cohen is at the center of everything that could bring Trump down.
