BUSTED: Kremlin Confirms Trump’s Lawyer Reached Out About Deal

Published

On Wednesday the Kremlin confirmed a report that said Donald Trump’s lawyer reached out to them during the 2016 presidential campaign, seeking help for a business project in Russia.

According to the Associated Press, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, confirmed to reporters on Wednesday that he did receive emails from Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen.

Peskov said he received multiple emails but that the Kremlin did not reply.

Peskov was then asked if Putin had seen the emails, to which he said he “cannot discuss with President Putin the hundreds and thousands of various requests coming from different countries” that end up in that Kremlin mailbox.

Peskov said the press office did not reply to Cohen’s email because it “does not react to such business requests. It is not our job.”

Trump Is Officially Under Investigation For Fraud By The NY District Attorney: NYT

Published

The Manhattan district attorney’s office is “investigating President Donald Trump and his company for bank and insurance fraud,” the New York Times reported Monday.

According to The Times, “the office of the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., made the disclosure in a new federal court filing arguing Mr. Trump should have to comply with its subpoena seeking eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.”

“The reports, including investigations into the president’s wealth and an article on the congressional testimony of his former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, said that the president may have illegally inflated his net worth and the value of his properties to lenders and insurers. Lawyers for Mr. Trump have said he did nothing wrong.”

The newspaper also reported that Trump has asked a judge to declare the subpoena invalid.

The news comes less than a month after the Supreme Court, in a major ruling on the limits of presidential power, cleared the way for Mr. Vance’s prosecutors to seek Mr. Trump’s financial records.

The Times also noted that the investigation is a “significantly broader inquiry than the prosecutors have acknowledged in the past.”
