"Last night, the [url=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5732429/Michael-Cohen-asked-millions-dollars-pass-Trump-family-members.html]Daily Mail

a $100 billion Qatari investment fund, to send him “millions” which, the story claims, would go “through
him to Trump family members.”

We have already learned of multiple cases of Cohen using his access to Trump to jack up multiple
corporations for outrageous sums. The Daily Mail report deepens the trouble in two crucial ways.
First, it extends Cohen’s scheme from domestic corporations (or, in one case, domestic
corporations controlled by foreign entities) to direct overseas fundraising. Second, and more
ominously, it alleges that Cohen funneled the money to Trump’s family. It was bad enough that
Trump’s lawyer was enriching himself by cashing in on access. Now the story suggests he was
enriching them, transforming the Cohen bribery story into a Trump bribery story......"
