    1. @Whicker you are so delusional and so much caught up in cult you probably would drink the kool aid.

    2. CNN still stuck on President Trump. Didn’t they say Biden got 82 million votes, 8 million more than Odumbo? And he didn’t campaign? God bless the audit effort. Biden and Harris must be exposed as the frauds they are. Trump will be reinstated.

    3. We darker people hate TRUMP because during his presidency there were plenty of jobs and extremely low unemployment we had to go to work unable to claim welfare or other government assistance . Stupid people should not be allowed to vote and that means CNN’s idiots brigades .
      BLM – BLAME LOOT MURDER .W hen will Americans wake up ? When BLM will finally bring back cannibalism .
      Democrooks are in panic , they are criminals who are trying to hide by using censorship ,bribery and mafia like tactics
      they go after political opponents using DOJ ,FBI AND CIA

    1. @Walter Montalvo Lets get a few things straight, if I pay CFO’s a million dollars a year, I’m not going to supervise his every move as I have better things to do with my time and money and that is why I pay him.

      If this CFO is going to use a company perk like a car, which is what this case is all about, then he has to declare that on his own personal income taxes as a fringe benefit. Its up to you to report your taxes, its not the company you work for.

      Its ridiculous to criminally charge someone for a company perk like a car, this is just ridiculous. My brother had his car registered at the company he works for. He is doing probably the exact same thing.
      I guess my brother is a felon and should be thrown in jail?

      Nobody has ever been criminally prosecuted for something like this. Why don’t you be fair and call it going after your political enemies.

      They couldn’t also charge the trump organization with anything else other than fringe benefits. Remember, Trump is paying this CFO out of his businesses and Trump could have kept this money for himself.

    2. @Fighter4Street You’re a delusional dreamer. You can’t get away with legal liability when you sign the final checks and documents. Even tax accounting firms only hold liability to the discrepancies in their tax fillings for you. You’re the one answering to IRS when audited.

    3. CNN still stuck on President Trump. Didn’t they say Biden got 82 million votes, 8 million more than Odumbo? And he didn’t campaign? God bless the audit effort. Biden and Harris must be exposed as the frauds they are. Trump will be reinstated.

    4. @Benjamin Levine It’s not CNN. Manhattan DA and NY state AG have been after Trump organization financial and tax frauds for years even before 2015 when Trump ran for president. Since Trump has no more presidential immunity, the indictments follows. Watch indictment dominoes gradually lead to Trump’s collapse.

    1. *I would Trust a Mixed drink from Bill Cosby before I would Trust anything coming from Michael Cohen.*

    3. @Benjamin Levine does it make you sad that Biden got millions more votes and won in a landslide without campaigning?

    4. @Total Control shouldn’t you be out there protesting for more rights for your democratic LGBTQ+ community ?

    1. The 1876 election was overturned in 1877. “The fraud of the century”. Keep the Faith

    2. Simply because you type of people Live to HATE . If you don’t get your daily dose of Hate you get more depressed

    3. @Bryan lying for Trump! He’s a Rat about what? Lol Yes that’s correct Individual one the unindicted criminal. I’d be interested to hear what you would do in his place?

    4. @Bryan what about Flynn ? He lied under oath and wants a Coup to get Trump back in office. That is Treason the only reason he is out of jail is because Trump gave him a pardon. Cohen is still serving his sentence

  1. Dave, yeah you, Dave Chapelle, stand aside Michael Cohen has the stage! Netflix are you looking at this? MC needs a documentary.

    1. @Bryan a lot of people consider that presidential qualities. These same people think tv ratings and crowd sizes is an indication of great leadership skills.

    2. CNN still stuck on President Trump. Didn’t they say Biden got 82 million votes, 8 million more than Odumbo? And he didn’t campaign? God bless the audit effort. Biden and Harris must be exposed as the frauds they are. Trump will be reinstated.

    3. WTF does Dave Chappelle have to do with this?? Cohen is certainly NOT a comedian or entertainer, he’s white..

    4. @Patty J. Ayers That’s how you compliment someone’s new found talent: you compare him with the best. Doesn’t matter he’s white or orange. Lol

  2. Don’t flip on me Alan, I’ll clear you of all charges when I’m President again in August. I’m rallying hard for it.

    1. @elizzybec If you don’t have the courage to argue your beliefs, you have no business being involved in decisions on policy or anything else important.

    2. @Mike Keller Democrats have been trying to get people to implicate Trump since the Mueller investigation. That’s four years now with nothing… When are you going to wake the f up?

    3. @elizzybec Sorry, little girl, but “if you say so troll” just isn’t a very convincing argument… If you can’t think of a way to convince people they should accept your ideas then you should go back to playing with your dolls, dumb little girl…

  3. Just think, if tRump had stay in NY real estate all this would never have come to light and he could have kept his con going. His ego is his downfall.

    1. @Dr. Bunter Hiden why then did republicans gain 10 house seats why arent you questioning those results a lot of split voters was the reason biden won yet lost 10 house seats

    2. The “guy” had to go into politics because he had burned all his “business” bridges. And probably had few people who would enter into a business relationship with him. So how does one keep taking other’s money while being protected? Politics. Money from foreign countries for US intelligence, etc. President got his access and protection that way. Pray to God he gets a piece of what he deserves! And the rest of his minions!

    3. I’m glad Trump ran for President. He forced the swamp to show everyone how they misuse our justice system to go after their political enemies…

    4. That is what I have been saying……………if he had just remained a PRIVATE CITIZEN……

      but oh no he WANTED TO RULE THE WORLD

    1. @m douglas
      THEY CHEATED!
      THEY CHEATED!
      THEY CHEATED!
      THEY CHEATED!
      I mean, there’s no evidence whatsoever that they cheated, but
      THEY CHEATED!
      THEY CHEATED!
      THEY CHEATED!
      MOMMIE!
      WAHHHHHHHHHH!

    2. @Carol Cisko The funny thing about it is he didn’t think he would actually win. He and Melania were completely shocked when he won. The look on their faces was priceless.

    1. @becky doesit …? are you this dull? He flipped because he wasn’t one of the 60-100 that pumpkin daddy pardoned… you must have had a backbreaking time w/ reading comprehension in grade school

    2. @ALBIZURES
      “They perceive him as their great white hope!”

      When in actual fact he’s just an orange colored stain!!.

      .

    3. @Areola Grande Trump could not have pardoned him, genius. Presidential pardons only work on a federal level, not at state levels. Besides, Michael Cohen lied about the money going to Stormy Daniels or got it mixed up. Trump was unaware of what Cohen was doing.

    4. @becky doesit Ok, but then why did Trump pay him back? So much denial, so little logic…

  4. In a couple weeks – Trump: “Alan?, No, I don’t know him, he worked for my father for a very short time”

    1. @Logan M Lol. This is a LIE! No presidency was EVER overturned and NO presidency in the future will be overturned. Stop making up lies, you are delusional.

    2. @Analytical Chem Guy if anything, all your statement really says is… Democrats and Republicans have remained the same since the beginning of time. Republicans have always had the fight against the racist corrupt Democrats… I wish they had more spine today!

    3. Hello I hope you’re safe over there? I hope this year brings happiness, love and prosperity all over the world
      I’m Jefferson from Alabama, and you where are you from if I may ask?

    1. @Cody Mackniak How is the twice acquitted former President “going to jail” when he hasn’t been charged with anything? Mr. Weisselberg wouldn’t help the Trump hating Democrat prosecutors invent something to charge Mr. Trump with, and this is the result. Also, an indictment is only an allegation, and the prosecutors still have to prove their case in a courtroom. Of course, that trial is way out in the future, and in the meantime delusional Trump haters will make idiotic suggestions that the indictment means that Trump is “going to jail.”

    2. @akparadise No offense what other investigation does he need? His whole 4 years of presidency he was under investigation. If he announced he wasn’t running in 2024 it would all go away and ask yourself is that wrong? Yep

    3. @JohnnyLightningV10 He used those four years in the White House claiming you can’t go after a sitting president. Now he’s not there. If he had done his job. Quite his business for four years like he promised. Showed us his taxes like every president before him and not gone with the audit scam. If he had listened to his generals and scientists instead of claiming he was smarter than all of them. If he hadn’t scammed so much money while in the White House. If he had acted like a president I’d agree. But he did do all that. He stood up and lied for four years. I know all presidents lie at some point but come on every day. Read some early books on Donald before he became president. I’ve read and listened to both sides and judged him. He is not a good president and cannot be allowed to destroy the United States. If he gets re-elected you know instead of running the government he will continue to get even with everyone on his little black list. His wife said it best.

  5. Weisselberg’s the ONLY guy Trump was generous to because he knows where the financial bodies are buried.

    1. The 1876 election was overturned in 1877. “The fraud of the century”. Keep the Faith. The election isnt over

    2. @Chris Jones Don’t be misinformed. At this stage in an indictment/charges, everybody and I mean everybody from Weisselberg to a drug addict off the street pleads not guilty. It’s just standard.

    1. @Logan M – you know that that is not correct, don’t you?
      The election Tilden (D) vs. Hayes (R) was a close run off where both sides claimed victory at 184 (T) vs 165 (H) votes. Both claimed victory as 20 electoral votes from 4 states were unresolved. A bipartisan commission was established and these 20 unresolved votes went to Hayes, giving him the 185 votes and the 1 vote over Tilden to win the election.
      There was no overturning, as there confirmation (comparable to Jan. 6th) had not taken place. Once it though happened the story was over, NO overturning of any election took place but a bipartisan resolve.
      This was a close run for both candidates, the last election was not even close to such a marginal run. Two time indicted and insurrectionist DT is the loser of the Presidency, the Senate and the House of Representatives to the Republican party. Now his company got indicted for tax fraud and DT came out as the bottom feeder (one of the worst Presidents in US history) of all Presidents.
      But stay in your rabbit hole and play the three monkeys game, reality doesn’t care for your delusion. Otherwise get help.

    2. You’re right. Anyone associated with Trump is a target of our corrupt government. It’s Soviet style.

    3. @Logan M not true! Read about it again because obviously you didn’t understand it or maybe you are just repeating what someone else said.

    1. @TheDiamond2009 like all Trump’s buddies. Even Flynn. At least Cohen is serving his time and didn’t get a pardon. And is not calling for a Coup like Flynn did

    2. @Don Hennessy We darker people hate TRUMP because during his presidency there were plenty of jobs and extremely low unemployment we had to go to work unable to claim welfare or other government assistance . Stupid people should not be allowed to vote and that means CNN’s idiots brigades .

    3. They can call it the lawyer who became a felon who broke his oath of Lawyer client confidentiality. Or just Slime ball.

    4. @croton on hudsonSpeaking of idiots…

      Did you know that according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in March of 2010 during the height of the mortgage collapse, the black unemployment rate was 16.8%? At the time the Obama administration handed over to Trump in January 2017, that rate was 7.8%. 11 months later Under Trump it then went down by 1 percentage point to 6.8% in December 2017, at which point he began bragging and spewing his nonsense about being the one responsible for bringing it down.

      So. Let’s recap, shall we? Obama brings down black unemployment by nine percentage points while Trump brought it down by one percentage point… yet you have the unmitigated gall, the sheer audacity, the utter nerve to say that Trump did the most for us black people? Do you really want to talk about idiots? Because, you see, I’m afraid you wouldn’t like where an analysis of that issue ends up.

      Furthermore, Trump didn’t even have to do anything extraordinary or specific to bring the rate down by that one percentage point. Because the economy, including the black unemployment rate, was ALREADY improving over the preceding SEVEN years in the same 11-month period. As a matter of fact, the rate was actually coming down at a HIGHER rate over the preceding 3 years under Obama for the same 11-month period, than it did under Trump.

      (Compared to Trumps 1 percentage point, it fell 1.9 percentage points in 2015, 1.5% in 2014 and 1.8% in 2013.)

      Touching on idiocy, again, It is patent why you willingly swallow Trump’s childish nonsense. This is the man who tried to deceive the world on national television by presenting a map clearly altered with a sharpie, as if no one would notice. The same moron who smugly admitted to his morons that he had always lknown. about Covids lethality. Same moron who thinks nothing of cheating on his wife as he pays 130K to some slut to buy her silence. Yet you’re too slow upstairs to realize that this man has a proven record of dishonesty and that you’d better look up anything he says for yourself before making any conclusions. Weren’t you curious to see what the unemployment rate was before Trump, at the very least?

      And I wonder whether you see the irony and hypocrisy of denying that claims of racism are true, when you’re the exact same clown who has no compunction stereotyping and labelling all of us black folk as “stupid” or accusing us of deliberately avoiding work so we can get benefits. I for one, am proof that that allegation is false and should be treared with the contempt of deserves, Mr. Sagacity.

      Enjoy your white privilege while tou can. You might want to look up The Browning Of America, Bub

  6. He could have lied himself out of prison but he chose to speak the truth, if I ever need a lawyer I would seek out a lawyer with his frame of mind,

    1. I would not. I want my lawyer to be honest and have integrity in the first place. This guy didn’t so remains suspect.

    1. *I would Trust a Mixed drink from Bill Cosby before I would Trust anything coming from Michael Cohen.*

    1. @mike briganti Lying for trump…. What does Avenatti have to do with trump? he was stormy daniels lawyer yet went to jail for something unrelated.. Keep aiding and abetting a criminal you schmuck!

    2. @Daniel Cohen was the water-boy for Trumps legal team, yes Trump did provide jobs for the mentally handicapped. Dont tell me you would hire that guy (LMAO)

  7. That final punch line: “it’s not true.” … … … Four years of lies and throwing people under the bus. If Weaselburg believes the lie… … well, send him to jail.

    1. The issue is that the Trump Organization is a Money Laundering & Tax Evasion Operation. Almost ten years of way ing no taxes is a big sign that Donald Trump has committed Tax Evasion. The over five hundred shell corporations are a clear sign of a Money Laundering Operation…
