Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen has beenin the headlines a lot recently, and as usual, it's for all the wrong reasons.
But this past week, Rolling Stone came outwith a phenomenal new story that shed some light on what a horrible lawyer Michael Cohenactually was.
As it turns out, according to what RollingStone uncovered, Michael Cohen, during his time before he became Donald Trump's lawyer,he was a regular auto accident attorney.
You know, probably one of those people yousee on TV saying, "Call me if you've been hurt in a wreck! I'll get you a check!" But he actually represented clients who werelater found guilty to be setting up and staging car accidents in order to then go back andsue so they could just make a ton of money off of it.
Specifically, some of the scams involved havingpeople go and rent U-Haul trucks.
They would then have somebody just sittingin a car somewhere.
The U-Haul truck would then smash into thatcar, and then they would sue U-Haul for renting the vehicle to that particular person, andU-Haul paid out.
I think they made about $350,000, the peoplerunning this little scheme, who were represented by Michael Cohen.
Now, according to Rolling Stone, Michael Cohenwas not implicated in this scheme.
He just represented them.
He didn't know anything about the fact thatwhat they were doing was illegal.
And to that I have this to tell you.
Either Michael Cohen is lying, or he's theworst attorney in this country.
In case you've never been involved in an autoaccident lawsuit, let me tell you how it works.
Law firms hire investigators to investigatecar crashes.
I know it seems like overkill, but that'swhat happens.
Many law firms actually have their own teamof in-house investigators whose job it is to go out, recreate accidents, pull backgroundreports on everyone involved, including witnesses.
And if someone is lying, if they had a pastconnection in any way, be it social media, high school, letters, emails, they uncoverthat.
Cell phone calls.
Just for things as simple as an auto accident.
So you can't tell me that Michael Cohen, ahigh priced auto accident lawyer in New York City, didn't have investigators go out andlook into these, or they just overlooked it after they were getting several differentlawsuits that they were filing against U-Haul for these constant accidents that seem tobe happening.
There is no way in hell Michael Cohen didn'tknow what was going on.
Either that, or he really and truly is theworst lawyer in the United States of America.
The bottom line after all of this, though.
I don't see any way Michael Cohen comes out of the ongoing saga still being a practicinglawyer.
He's probably going to be stripped of hislicense, going to be disbarred, and hopefully will never show up in court again unless it'sbecause he's the one being accused of a crime.
