Stormy Daniels’ lawyer’s report just unveiled a disturbing new Trump corruption scandal

Today, we witnessed one of the most stunning developments in the Trump-Stormy Daniels saga yet when Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for the president’s alleged adult film star mistress, unveiled a special report detailing numerous payments from suspicious sources to the shell corporation used by Trump’s personal attorney and bagman Michael Cohen.

This is the same Cohen who arranged the $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels.

Now, Greg Pinelo, a former campaign ad creator for Obama has pointed out another glaring detail in Avenatti’s report. Apparently, the pharmaceutical company Novartis also funnelled money, in the amount of $400,000, to the same Michael Cohen account that Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg made payments to.

President Trump went on to meet with the CEO of Novartis at the World Economic Summit in Davos, making this entire slush fund look very much like a pay-for-play scandal. 

Avenatti also included a report which goes into further detail about the payment.  According to the document: “Mr. Vekselberg and his cousin Mr. Andrew Intrater routed eight payments to Mr. Cohen through a company named Columbus Nova LLC (“Columbus”) beginning in January 2017 and continuing until at least August 2017.” The report adds that the payments in question were funnelled to Essential Consultants, LLC, which is (perhaps not coincidentally) the company through which Cohen paid Stormy Daniels.

The money began to be delivered in January 2017, meaning a few short months after Cohen claims he put up the equity on his house to pay Daniels. The house part of his story never made sense. Why would Trump’s lawyer float his own house to pay off Trump’s mistress? Now it appears we have a possible answer: he knew a Russian oligarch would reimburse him before too long.

In other words, it appears that Cohen may have used a Russian oligarch to bankroll the hush money that helped silence Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 election. If true, it would be a stunning example of outright collusion, the kind that could sink a presidency.

More details are sure to emerge soon, and things look increasingly grim for the Trump presidency.
