Michael Cohen Plea Details

22 Aug 2018

via Scribd – 2018/08/21

Summary:

8 Counts Total.
Count 1 – Tax evasion 2012
Count 2 – Tax evasion 2013
Count 3 – Tax evasion 2014
Count 4 – Tax evasion 2015
Count 5 – Tax evasion 2016
Count 6 – False statement made to a financial institution regarding credit
Count 7 – Causing unlawful corporate contributions
Count 8 – Making excessive campaign contributions

Being that many are rabid for Trump’s head on a platter, the focus is on Count 8. If people were really concerned about the law, it sounds like he should have been dealt with years ago.

The other issue is the attempt to make Count 8 a campaign contribution. This is regarding the $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy). This will be difficult to achieve, and it is spelled out here by former FEC Chairman Bradley Smith.

That’s the basics.


Woman Gets Jailtime For Falsely Reporting Rape

Woman who lied about being raped on college campus gets jail – MLive, 2018/06/19

Despite previously indicating he wouldn’t do so, a Bay County judge sent a woman to jail for making up a story about being raped in a Delta College parking lot.

Bay County Circuit Judge Joseph K. Sheeran on Monday, June 18, sentenced 21-year-old Mary T. Zolkowski to 45 days in jail, with no credit for any time served. Once Zolkowski serves her term, she’ll be on probation for two years, during which she is to be tested for drugs and alcohol and participate in substance abuse counseling.

Good. It’s time to increase the risk for those who report false crimes.

Here’s a running list of false reports of crimes.

ISIS Fighters Admit in German Court That They Posed As Refugees

28 Feb 2018

Islamic State Fighter On Trial Admits Terror Group Sent Him Disguised As Refugee – Breitbart, 2018/02/17

For the last eight months, the judges in the court have tried to determine whether or not the men were sent by the Islamic State, or whether they were radicalised independently.

The eldest defendant, 27-year-old Mohamed A., confirmed to the judge that he had been commanded by the Islamic State terror group to infiltrate the wave of refugees and wait in Germany for further instructions.

The 27-year-old said that he trained with the terror group in its former capital of Raqqa for three months with four different weapons before heading to Europe. An Islamic State member also gave him a forged passport along with a sum of $1,500.

This was the Congressman from New Orleans who hid $90K in a freezer back during Hurricane Katrina.

2017/10/04 – William Jefferson ordered released from prison after judge drops 7 of 10 counts – NOLA Times Picayune

A federal judge in Virginia has thrown out the most substantial charges against former congressman William Jefferson of New Orleans and ordered “his immediate release” from prison while his new sentence is determined. He is five years into a 13-year term for corruption, but seven of the 10 charges against him have been thrown out on appeal.


Jefferson, 70, was tried for 16 counts of corruption in 2009 and convicted of 11. He reported to federal prison in Beaumont, Texas, in December 2012 and was transferred to a penitentiary in Oakdale, Louisiana, in January 2014. It is not known yet just how soon he will be be released.

His conviction came after he had served nine terms in Congress, where he sat on several House committees including Ways and Means and Budget. He was also co-chair of the Africa Trade and Investment Caucus and the Congressional Caucus on Nigeria.


Government prosecutors have until Oct. 30 to decide whether they want to retry Jefferson on the convictions that have been thrown out. A new sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Dec. 1.

2017/06/29 – Manhattan Skyscraper Linked to Iran Can Be Seized by U.S., Jury Finds – NY Times

The jury, which deliberated for one day after a month of testimony, found that the Alavi Foundation, which owns 60 percent of the 36-floor skyscraper at 650 Fifth Avenue, violated United States sanctions against Iran and engaged in money laundering through its partnership with Assa Corporation, a shell company for an Iranian state-controlled bank that had owned the remaining 40 percent.


The government has agreed to distribute proceeds from the building’s sale, which could bring as much as $1 billion, to the families of victims of terrorism, including the Sept. 11 attacks, where Iran has been found to have had some culpability.

Good.
