Donald Trump’s former lawyer says whole 'clan’ could be jailed in tax controversy
Michael Cohen says president’s family all ‘complicit in tax evasion’
“He may actually be the first president to go from the White House to prison. And I don’t think he’s by himself too,” Cohen told MSNBC’s Joshua Johnson.“I think that Allen Weisselberg, his chief financial officer, is complicit in it. As well as Don, Ivanka, Eric. I believe that the entire Trump clan is complicit in all of this tax evasion.”
Cohen pleaded guilty in 2018 to lying to Congress, campaign violations and financial crimes and was sentenced to three years in prison.The campaign violations are tied to money paid before the 2016 election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both claimed affairs with Mr Trump.
The president has denied all claims against him.“These are legitimately what Judge Pauley stated in my case,” said Cohen, who is currently on home confinement following release from prison due to the coronavirus pandemic.“These are sophisticated schemes, within which to deprive the IRS of income, of taxes, that are desperately needed. Not putting your money in either Capital One or First Republic Bank as I did.”
Mr Cohen added that the “whole thing is a scheme, and there is always a scheme when it comes to the Trump clan.”Cohen, who wrote a tell-all book about his time with Mr Trump that was published earlier this month, said he did not think the tax issue would bother the president’s supporters.
“He’s got a certain base where it truly doesn’t matter what he does,” said Cohen.“And these people, for whatever their crazy belief system is, and I was part of that Donald Trump cult. And for whatever reason, it’s acceptable. But it’s absolutely not.”Read more: The Independent »
