Trump Prediction Comes True: Michael Cohen Investigated for Taxi-Related Offenses

President Trump predicted in late July that his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, might be accusing the president of various misdeeds simply in the hopes that prosecuters would cut the lawyer a break on offenses related to his involvement in taxi cabs.

In a series of tweets, Trump lashed out after reports hit the air that Cohen is claiming the president knew in advance of the Trump Tower meeting.

The president strongly denied Cohen’s assertions, implying the lawyer may be in trouble for “taxi cabs.”

It seems that Trump was spot-on with his guess, as the former lawyer is now under investigation for tax fraud related to his taxi-medallion business.

Per the report from The Wall Street Journal:

Federal authorities are assessing whether Mr. Cohen’s income from his taxi-medallion business was underreported in federal tax returns, one of the people said. That income included hundreds of thousands of dollars received in cash and other payments over the last five years, the person said.

Prosecutors also are looking into whether any bank employees improperly allowed Mr. Cohen to obtain loans for which he didn’t provide adequate documentation, people familiar with the matter said.

Trump’s true prediction may lend credence to his side of the story and undermine Cohen’s assertions.
