Stupid about AGW!!
In news from yet other unnamed sources.

NY Daily News is reporting that several of Cohen's friends have told them that Cohen has informed them he expects that he will be arrested and indicted soon. NY Daily News also said his friends are worried for him and said he is very stressed out.

Also Vanity Fair ran an article citing an unnamed former Trump WH official who told them
“Trump should be super worried about Michael Cohen,” “If anyone can blow up Trump, it’s him.”

Cohen did speak out about the Vanity Fair article saying “Your alleged source is wrong

Ohh I seriously doubt any of this will harm Trump....but it might take out a few of Trump's close friends and Cohen is going down hard because he is a legit slime ball.
From the original stuff reported I'm trying to figure out what any of it has to do with the feds. Taxi medalions would be a local city issue. Anything to do with paying off Stormy would be local unless there was a campaign finance violation. That is a slap on the wrist kind of offense not something you kick in doors for.

Has to be some serious money laundering going on.

My guess is it's mob related.

He also as part of the plea did say that he was directed to violate campaign laws at the direction of a candidate for Federal Office and that this same candidate also directed him to pay someone $130,000 to keep them quiet which the candidate later repaid him. and the candidate directed him to pay another person $150,000 to remain quiet

He also pleaded that the violating campaign laws was for the purpose of influencing the 2016 election

He did not name the candidate or the persons he paid to keep quiet.
