    Could be a lot of it went to attorney's fees and for bail. It's even possible he came to the attention of Attorney General Jeff "Civil Forfeiture" Sessions.

    Sounds like he may be getting ready. One observation I read noted that Cohen's present legal team has been paid by the Trump campaign. They would not be able to represent him going forwards if Cohen were to flip, out of conflict of interest issues.

    **** UPDATE ****

    Michael Cohen dropped the reference "personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump" from his Twitter and LinkedIn biographies on Wednesday, days after he spoke to ABC News about his legal situation.
    The change on Twitter was not immediately accompanied by a change on his LinkedIn page, and his Twitter account still included a hyperlink to LinkedIn. But later Wednesday the reference was also gone from Cohen's LinkedIn page.

    This may partially explain why Mueller has hired a bunch more staff.

    Why do you wish to hide corruption? If Mr Trump has done nothing wrong, then he has nothing to worry about if his ex-lawyer cooperates with Mr Mueller.

    Pretty obvious that those squawking to end the investigation, those running down law enforcement, know that Trump has a lot to hide

    How stupid is this post? Have you no understanding at all of how criminal investigations are conducted?

    You would be mortified if you had any conception of how ridiculous such posts make you appear.

    I'm in awe that the Republicans are up in arms because the gov. is pressing Cohen to tell the truth about Trump, as if THAT were the real outrage, not the fact that there's a veritable mountain of nefarious stuff to hide.

    You don't worry about Don Knots "flipping" on Any Griffith, you worry about Fredo "flipping" on Michael Corleone—ie, true thugs.

    Money laundering and tax evasion are probably a good start.

    I think you mean collusion. That is yet to be proven, but there are plenty of Russian connections.

    The actual crime being investigated is criminal conspiracy.

    Of course, so far Trump has not been charged with any crime. He may be or he may not be. None of us will know until Mueller concludes his investigation.

    We all know this of course. But bobbys is so fearful that his Hero might be charged with crimes that he is spinning wild nonsense, as usual. It is actually pitiful.

    Many of us think that Trump IS actually guilty of crimes... but that is merely our opinion. As for being presumed innocent until proven guilty... that is the responsibility of a juror in a criminal trial. Not a bunch of people posting their opinion on the WBF.

    Things get a little complex, however, when it comes to the 'double jeopardy' issue. Since the Constitution guarantees that no one can be prosecuted twice, for the same crime, the State is limited in what it can prosecute. . . .
    Not an attorney, but it is my impression that every Federal crime is different from any State crime, because the statutes originate from different legislative bodies.

    Get cleared on Federal charges of fraud? The State the fraud was committed in is next up to bat.
