4. Actually, Mueller has asked Avenatti a couple of times to hold off on certain things

Avenatti stated this on MSNBC about a month ago. He did not elaborate.

10. This oligarch is on the latest sanctions list

http://www.businessinsider.com/russia-sanctions-list-oleg-deripaska-viktor-vekselberg-alexander-torshin-2018-4

so regardless of what Mueller may be looking at any Russians for, Cohen was in the middle of it all with his shell company, taking from them (and others) and paying hush money using that same shell company.

12. It's scary

because usually this kind of stuff runs in a metro section of a city newspaper covering a mob investigation.

13. Yeah Bum, all this "oligarch" crap - it's MOB all the way - screw an "oligarch", that's so dignified

and romantic. NOPE

Meanwhile, I can’t read it, but NYT just now:


?s=20

Financial records reviewed by NYT show Cohen used the LLC for activities that went far beyond what was publicly known. Transactions totaling at least $4,400,000 flowed through the LLC starting shortly before Trump was elected and continuing to Jan. ‘18.

14. Big old slush fund

and the question is, did he have others like this? As the FBI "teams" go through the stuff, I expect we'll find out. I.e., were funds transferred out of "Essential LLC" to any other shells, etc.

15. Well, I sure don't know how it all worked, but Cohen and his father in law lent a family friend

TWENTY SIX MILLION BUCKS - $6M of that from Cohen himself - since 2014...so when I see reports of Cohen and $130,000 and such I’m like, yeah, chump change, man!! Wait’ll we see the REAL dollar amounts this mobster’s been moving!!!

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, whose business dealings are being investigated by the FBI, and the lawyer’s father-in-law have lent $26 million in recent years to a taxi mogul who is shifting into the legalized marijuana industry, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

Semyon “Sam” Shtayner, a longtime business associate of Michael Cohen’s father-in-law, created Nevada-based Cannaboss LLC the day before the 2016 election. A few months later, he took a majority position in a company that is provisionally licensed to cultivate medicinal marijuana and produce edibles, the records show.

snip

It’s not clear whether Shtayner used any of the loans — $6 million of which have come directly from Cohen since 2014 — to finance his grow operation.

17. Apparently so, Bum! And speaking of "property",

the articles I’ve seen on Cohen’s father-in-law, Fima Shusterman, only mention his taxi business - but google reveals that he also runs, or ran, a real estate business...there are no dates connected to these links, and virtually no info (grrrr) ...the outfit is simply called “Shusterman Fima”...hmmmm, can you say, “money laundering”?

8. Avenatti has said he has been cooperating with FBI and Mueller already interviewed the Russian

so my guess is Avenatti has cleared the release of his info with FBI.

Seems like this info helps protect the investigations by revealing basis for law enforcement suspicions of potential wire fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, and corrupt influence peddling by foreign entities.
