  • Home Corporate  Michael Cohen’s Business Partner Flips On Him Will Cooperate With Mueller Probe By Farron Cousins

Petro Poroshenko's office issued a statement to RFE/RL on May 23, hours after the BBC published a report saying the payment to the lawyer, Michael Cohen, was arranged by intermediaries acting for Poroshenko who wanted to open a back channel to Trump.

If anybody knows where the taxi medallion bodies are buried, it is surely New York's taxi king, whom prosecutors gave a PRETTY SWEET DEAL - five years of probation when he was facing 100 years of hard time for felony tax fraud.

Freidman pleaded guilty Tuesday to pocketing $5 million in passenger fees that were supposed to fund public transportation.

But Cohen insisted the press was mischaracterizing their relationship, describing himself as "one of thousands of medallion owners who entrust management companies to operate" their medallions, and concluding his tweet with the hashtag #MediaWrongAgain.

Curry says mom scolded him for Game 3 obscenity
The Warriors always make their big run in the third quarter, and the Rockets had no answer for it on Sunday night. We started off the game pretty solid, and then we let them gain some confidence to end the first quarter.

Tuesday's announcement, and a demand that the matter be brought to the House floor for a vote, comes as House Republicans accuse the Federal Bureau of Investigation of planting "at least one person into the Trump campaign" to spy on its activities, said Representative Lee Zeldin who is a member of the Freedom Caucus and the resolution's author.

So, exactly how are Cohen and Freidman connected?

Freidman pleaded guilty in Albany to one count of evading $50,000 worth of taxes.

The Ukrainian MP was later put in touch with Cohen after using personal contacts at a Jewish charity in NY.

Walmart posts earnings beat as revenue rises
The company has a market capitalization of $250.38 billion, a PE ratio of 19.26, a P/E/G ratio of 2.92 and a beta of 0.54. Baird set a $110.00 price target on Walmart and gave the stock a "buy" rating in a report on Tuesday, January 2nd.

Despite this, Poroshenko was frustrated by Cohen, as he initially had great trouble nailing down a lengthy meeting with the president. He declared bankruptcy on some of his medallions in 2016 and previous year was charged by the NY state attorney general with theft. At this point, Michael Cohen, the only thing he can do to save himself from going to jail, because this guy, Mr. Friedman has now flipped and he's gonna work with NY prosecutors and he's gonna work with Robert Mueller. One of Michael Cohen's business partners, a Russian kingpin in the incredibly corrupt NYC taxi business, has reached a plea deal to cooperate in Cohen's prosecution, in exchange for a much lighter sentence than he would otherwise have received.

Cohen is reportedly under investigation for bank fraud and campaign finance law violations. "Gene Freidman and I are not partners and have never been partners in this business or any others".

His lawyer, Patrick Egan, declined to comment on the Times report.

"I can not comment on any speculation regarding what the entry of the plea indicates regarding any case other than my client's", he said.
