Bomb Drops LIVE On CNN After What Michael Cohen Was Caught Doing In Court

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Michael Cohen’s most recent evidence stunned the CNN legal panel and may change the course of former President Donald Trump’s criminal trial. Cohen, Trump’s former attorney and fixer, acknowledged stealing money from the Trump Organization on Monday, seriously undermining the prosecution’s case.

“This is a bomb,” noted CNN legal commentator Elie Honig, highlighting the seriousness of the situation. This is quite significant. This detonation comes right in the middle of the prosecution’s argument. The prosecution’s credibility is severely damaged by this, given they did not directly question Michael Cohen about it and did not force him to enter a guilty plea to theft, which is what this is.

The admission cast doubt on Cohen’s dependability as well as the attention to detail that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office showed while managing significant testimonial evidence. Even CNN host Jake Tapper highlighted the possible effect on the jury during the conversation, noting out that “one juror to say I have reasonable doubt” is all that is necessary. The panel concurred, pointing out significant flaws in the prosecution’s strategy, most notably their refusal to bring up the theft early in the interrogation process, which could have minimized the harm.

The relationship between the stolen money and a broader story about a payment to Stormy Daniels—which is central to the prosecution’s allegations against Trump—was also discussed. “How did they not get this out ahead of time?” Tapper said. There needs to be a reasonable doubt today that Michael Cohen has given them such a great gift, even if, as a jury, you believe he probably knew what he was paying for Michael Cohen.

“Is it possible that the prosecution can come back and redirect and somehow tie what looks like him just flatly stealing money… to him paying himself back in order to cover up the crime that’s alleged in this case?” Honig asked. The answer to this could be crucial in determining the trial’s outcome.

Cohen admitted to stealing thousands of dollars from the Trump Organization on Monday during a heated cross-examination at Trump’s trial in New York City. Todd Blanche, the Trump Organization’s attorney, questioned Cohen during the exchange by posing the question, “You did steal from the Trump Organization based upon the expected reimbursement from Red Finch,” alluding to a payment arrangement in which Stormy Daniels received $130,000 and the tech company Red Finch received $50,000.

“Yes, sir,” Cohen responded. According to Fox News, Cohen described taking out $20,000 in cash over the course of several days, putting it in a little brown paper bag, and giving it to Red Finch. However, he acknowledged that he never paid the whole $50,000 because the company ceased pursuing the outstanding balance.

Cohen said the Trump Organization believed he had paid the whole amount even though he hadn’t settled it in full and that he was still getting paid back for it. The last witness to testify was Cohen, who was the main witness for the prosecution. Along with Stormy Daniels, who also testified earlier in the trial, Trump is facing 34 charges of falsifying company documents related to alleged covert payments made to the porn star.
