regarding a by product of Russiagate:
State prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed President Trump’s accounting firm to demand eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns. As part of its investigation, prosecutors from the Manhattan district attorney's office visited Mr. Cohen, Donald's former personal attorney, in prison in Otisville, N.Y., to seek assistance with their investigation.
It will be very interesting if something as simple as covering up the purpose of the money reimbursed to Cohen turns out to be the key to actually getting the financial records out in the open. I am going to be most interested in seeing what backstop there was with Deutsche Bank on him defaulting on his loans. I doubt it is as straightforward as Russian oligarchs co-signing the loans, but there is likely some documentation buried in the records somewhere.
