Stormy Daniels' lawyer says Michael Cohen will be indicted within 90 days

Source: Washington Times

An attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels says President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen will likely be indicted.

“I strongly believe that within the next 90 days we’re going to see the unsealing of an indictment against Mr. Cohen for a host of very serious offenses,” Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Jake Tapper Sunday on “State of the Union.” “And I believe, Jake, that it’s going to be a significant domino that’s going to fall in connection with this.”

Mr. Avenatti said there is a “whole host of criminal conduct” for which Mr. Cohen could be charged, including bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign-finance violations.

The FBI raided Mr. Cohen’s Manhattan office last week and seized a trove of business documents, emails and audio recordings.

4. Remember you have to get the evidence first

And then determine whether it is sufficient to base charges on.

The standard in criminal cases is "beyond reasonable doubt", not just "a preponderance of the evidence" (as in civil cases).

5. It'll be more than just him getting indictments,

Many Republicans should be very nervous about this now. The GOP helping obstruct should also be getting scared. This will not end well for any of them, and Cohen with others will either flip or serve many,many years behind bars. We'll soon see how loyal he is at trying to protect trump over protecting himself. Remember Cohen is almost as big a liar as trump is, and a fraud.
