EXCLUSIVE: Michael Cohen 'asked Qatari investor for millions of dollars' which he said he would 'pass to Trump family members' at Trump Tower meeting - and Qatar's foreign minister was there too

Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, is facing claims he asked a Middle Eastern official for millions of dollars to give to 'Trump family members' in a meeting at Trump Tower weeks after the president's election victory, DailyMail.com can reveal.

Cohen is alleged to have asked Ahmed Al-Rumaihi, a former diplomat in charge of a $100bn Qatari investment fund, to send 'millions' through him to Trump family members. A source told DailyMail.com that the Qatari said he refused.

Al-Rumaihi on Tuesday issued a statement agreeing that he was at Trump Tower and a source with knowledge of the daysaid that Cohen had 'popped in' briefly to a meeting. Photographs show that he was part of a group greeted by Cohen, who went up in an elevator with them.

If the Daily Mail has this you can be sure that Robert Mueller does, too.

13. Worse, he's an extortionist. He blockaded Qatar when they refused to pay.

Eventually they caved and Trump relented.

3. Does this have any link with that brief anti-Qatar blitz?

I think it was about a year ago, suddenly I noticed a LOT of anti-Qatar propaganda messages on the Internet. Then, suddenly, they stopped. Did the Qatar government cave in to some threat or pressure?

14. Yes, it absolutely does. Trump's running a protection racket from the White House.

And his enforcers are the entire US DOD, State Department, and Department of Commerce.

4. So who else have they shaken down?

I hope this encourages others to come forward. Bribery is bribery. Up there right between treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors.

6. Confirmation that the Cohen money was being funneled to Trump

One more puzzle piece in place... and the picture is already quite clear.

10. Daily Mail has zero editorial standards

The British tabloids compete for newsstand sales so they will accept any source no matter how horrible if it gives them a headline which sells. So donít put much faith in their stories.

16. So far this story hasn't shown up anywhere else.

And one would think 200 some million dollars would be fairly easy to find.

12. Corruption stinks so high w/ this family and the GOP does nothing?

The GOP has proven itself to be worthless and unable to even function as a governing body even w/ control of both houses. Where are the checks and balances that Congress is supposed to be performing? If we get control of Congress again, we need to go after these people and not bury things like Obama did w/ the financial meltdown in 2008 and onwards. These people need to be punished for not doing their constitutionally mandated duties in acting as checks and balances to Congress, and they are not.

Untraceable money and election money means that elections can be brought via Citizens United. I'm surprised that no constitutional challenges have occurred so far. Why not?
