Michael Cohen says ‘It does not look good’ for the Former President’s taxes
Former personal attorney to Trump, Michael Cohen, and former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance join Katy Tur to discuss the recent Supreme Court Trump ruling.
[ Editor’s Note: There are not too many people who know more about Trump than Michael Cohen, but it looks like the public is finally going to get to see why Trump has been fighting so hard to block his tax return releases, something all past presidents have done.
To my great surprise, I have not seen a word about fixing this problem by requiring everyone running for president to disclose their tax returns BEFORE they run for office.
While the current focus is on his business tax returns, the bigger picture has yet to emerge. I predict the coming New York indictments are going to break the Trump dam.
By that I mean Cy Vance’s office is just going to get the ball rolling on all kinds of investigations into the Trump family. I can see the tax returns starting a domino effect, with witnesses taking plea agreements to reveal what one might expect would be called “running an ongoing criminal enterprise”.
Instead of cooling his heels on his old ways of doing business, Trump just doubled down as president, thinking that he was untouchable. His kids probably felt the same, and they are in for a big surprise, as I see no way they can insulate themselves.
Of course Donald seems to be choosing the martyr role, using the Trumptards as his big human shield to intimidate the legal process into backing off him. He is going to the CPAC convention to get some publicity, as he has been in ‘social media withdrawal’ by losing his twitter.
And he seems to not be paying attention to how all of his top marketers of “The Steal” are getting their asses sued, including some of the media platforms, sending them all a message that the game has changed. The general public is no longer their helpless punching bag.
Anticipate the Trump ‘brand’ becoming toxic to the point of being worthless. I think he expects it, and is going on the political offensive, as it is his only financial lifeline to keep the donor money rolling in and the consultant money being raked off for his grifter family and gang.
Call me a meanie if you want, but I am going to enjoy watching all of this happen, as it will be so deserved by the Trump family and their gang. Like Glenn Kirschner says, “Justice Matters”… Jim W. Dean ]
