Cohen's Taxi Business Associates Come Back To Haunt Him In New York Probe


By Allegra Kirkland | August 10, 2018 6:00 am

Michael Cohen has made it abundantly clear that he is open to cooperating with federal prosecutors.

This week brought news about two individuals who likely have interesting information to share with prosecutors about Cohen himself.

CNN reported that Jeffrey A. Getzel, Cohen’s former personal accountant, was in April subpoenaed to provide grand jury testimony in the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s criminal probe into Cohen’s business dealings. Cohen shared that accountant with his former partner in the taxi medallion business, “Taxi King” Gene Freidman, who pleaded guilty to tax fraud earlier this year. Freidman is reportedly cooperating with federal prosecutors in the Cohen probe, who are examining whether Cohen, too, committed tax fraud.

This means that the government will be able to compare the accounts of two people intimately acquainted with Cohen’s business dealings and finances with information they obtained in April raids on his apartment, office and apartment building.

“An accountant is very, very pivotal in a case like this because the issue is: are they real records, are there two sets of records, can someone demonstrate the actual amount of money that came in,” a former federal prosecutor told TPM. He requested to speak on background because he is currently representing an individual involved in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

“Accountants flip often,” the former prosecutor added.
