Today a judge effectively ended Donald Trump financially in the state of New York, ruling that Trump is liable for financial fraud, pulling Trump’s business licenses, and steering Trump’s assets toward receivership.
Michael Cohen was the one who first exposed Donald Trump’s specific acts of financial fraud, including mortgage and insurance fraud, a few years back. Ever since then he’s been leading the way in cooperating with various investigators, including New York Attorney General Letitia James.
Cohen celebrated today’s news by simply breaking out the caviar:
Michael Cohen has previously stated that he’s set to be called as a witness in the New York civil fraud trial against Donald Trump, which is set to begin next week. But with the judge having already found Trump liable, the trial will be more about determining the size of the financial penalties against Trump.
