Michael Cohen, Bag Man

Through his own admission, Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime attorney, played the role of Trump’s ‘fixer’ in the Stormy Daniels affair, paying Daniels hush money and covering it up in the waning days of the campaign. The allegations against Cohen in the Stormy Daniels affair bear a striking similarity to reports from the Steele Dossier: namely, that Michael Cohen went to Prague as a representative of Trump’s campaign to meet with the Russians to cover up collusion between the two sides.

These rumors include speculation that Trump may be planning to replace Sessions with EPA head Scott Pruitt. In addition to the numerous other questions this would raise, the move would also be an unlawful attempt to impede the Special Counsel’s Russia investigation.
