Accuses him

Among the facts before the power of attorney, the witness of the ex-lawyer and handyman of Trump, Michael Cohen, according to which the president may have inflated its assets and the value of the properties to obtain bank loans and insurance policies of a value higher than those to which he would have had access. For about a year, Trump has tried to thwart the investigation – which starts from payments made by Cohen to buy the silence of two women, Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal – claiming that, as president in office, he would be immune from state investigations: l The investigation would be insanely exaggerated and in bad faith, Trump’s lawyers say, and would consist of harassment of him, as well as a violation of his legal rights.
