Longtime Cohen Business Partner Agrees to Plea Deal

Donald Trump and long-time lawyer Michael Cohen

One of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's attorney, one of his business partners entered a plea deal with prosecutors in the state of NY this week, to where he can avoid lofty prison sentences for ... he's been accused of ... let's see.

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

Public records show that Cohen took out a business loan in late 2014 for an unspecified amount using three taxi companies as collateral.

Don't confuse Taxi King Evgeny Freidman with the Shtayners, Cohen's other taxi business partners, whom Cohen and his father-in-law loaned between $20 and $46 million in the past few years. Lewandowski "had a lot of heat on him" Cohen would say, according to one person close to him.

That likelihood could become greater with a business partner of Mr. Cohen's cooperating with law enforcement. In pleading guilty to a single count of criminal tax fraud, Freidman will be sentenced to five years' probation, the attorney general's office said. Trump, whose spokesmen have denied such an affair, reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels. If Cohen wants to save his own skin, he'll need to work out a plea deal as well and hand over all of his info on Donald Trump.

Trump helped Europe lose its illusions - Tusk
Options for the EU to protect European companies from negative consequences of the USA decision were also needed, Tusk said. Germany is Europe's biggest exporter to the United States with more than 1 million jobs at stake.

On Tuesday, Freidman agreed to pay restitution and judgments totaling $5 million to NY state. He declared bankruptcy on some of his medallions in 2016 and a year ago was charged by the NY state attorney general with theft. "Freidman pocketed money that should have provided much-needed investment in our transit system - and now he'll have to pay back every cent".

Sater is a convicted criminal associate of the Russian mob in NY and co-led Bayrock-Sapir, a real estate firm closely associated with Trump, to which Trump turned in his exploration of potential construction contracts in Moscow.

"I am one of thousands of medallion owners who entrust management companies to operate my medallions according to the rules of the NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission", Cohen wrote. "'Gene Freidman and I are not partners and have never been partners in this business or any other.' #MediaWrongAgain".

However, the meeting was in doubt even as Poroshenko was en route to the USA, infuriating Ukranian officials that Cohen took the money, reportedly as high as $600,000, despite not being able to make good on his promise, the BBC reports.

His lawyer, Patrick Egan, declined to comment on the Times report. But I'm willing to bet that Mr. Friedman, here, the guy who entered the plea deal, I'm willing to bet he knows.
