Michael Cohen says he tryed to rig the polls under the direction of Trump
Former lawyer for US President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, said he participated in falsifying polls, allegedly at the direction of his boss.
The Wall Street Journal newspaper reports that Cohen’s relationship with the head of a small IT company RedFinch began in 2012, when its head, John Gauger, helped a lawyer to create an account on the Instagram. In 2014 Cohen again applied to John with a request to intervene in the online survey of the CNBC television channel, which determines the rating of the top 100 US businessmen.
“As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging, what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS,” Cohen tweeted. “I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it.”
It is reported that in 2014, Trump did not get into the number of 100 flagships of American business according to CNBC. When next year John Gauger came to the Trump Tower, instead of the promised 50 thousand dollars, Cohen paid him 12 thousand in cash and also donated a boxing glove belonging to a certain Brazilian fighter in the style of mixed martial arts.
Cohen only partially denies this information, arguing that payment was made by check. Trump’s current attorney, Rudy Giuliani, called the statement of his former colleague “nonsense.”
