Michael Cohen calmly admits stealing $60K from Trump Org in trial testimony | 20 May 2024 | Michael Cohen coolly admitted Monday to stealing $30,000 from the Trump Organization -- and ending up with twice that much -- after overstating how much he needed to be repaid for fronting funds to a poll-rigging tech company called Red Finch. Cohen testified that he handed the CEO of the company $20,000 in cash in a brown paper bag in exchange for services that included rigging 2016 election polls in Donald Trump's favor... "You did steal from the Trump Organization based on the expected reimbursement from Red Finch, correct?" Trump lawyer Todd Blanche, his voice rising to a high pitch, asked Cohen. "Yes, sir," Cohen calmly replied. Blanche then noted Cohen "didn't just steal" the $30,000 -- the amount was $60,000 when grossed up.
