Professor Bowman Writes that Legal Issues Might Cause Trump to Cut Ties with Michael Cohen

On his blog, Impeachable Offenses, and in an op-ed in Slate, “The Vekselberg Case Increases the Odds of Michael Cohen Turning on Donald Trump,” Professor Frank Bowman spells out how the investigation into Michael Cohen exposes the Trump presidency to closer scrutiny by special counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, created a company whose bank accounts were used to make the hush payment to Stormy Daniels. In addition, those accounts received deposits from corporations appearing to seek favor from Cohen’s client and an investment firm with ties to Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg. This news “will put pressure on Trump to disavow his former lackey,” says Bowman. “Which should in turn increase the likelihood that an abandoned Cohen will agree to cooperate against his faithless boss.”
