Michael Cohen seems to qualify.

He soon began assembling a portfolio of businesses outside the legal profession, virtually all involving Ukrainian immigrants — many of whom were, or became, immensely wealthy.

Perhaps the earliest was a taxi business in partnership with the Ukraine-born Simon Garber, who was at one time involved with a Moscow cab company, and now has huge stakes in cab ownership in New York, Chicago and New Orleans.

By 2003, Cohen and Garber were running more than 200 taxis in New York, allowing Cohen to pull in $90,000 a month in 2011. The partnership imploded in 2012 after a nasty legal dispute, after which Cohen went his own way and entrusted his 15 medallion companies to Evgeny Friedman, a Russian immigrant who holds the single largest collection of medallions in New York.

In partnership with two other Ukrainian immigrants, Cohen went into the casino boat business. His partners, Leonid Tatarchuk and Arkady Vaygensberg, were associated with a man who allegedly had FSU mob ties, and with a lawyer indirectly connected to the late mob legend Meyer Lansky.

The gambling venture was besieged by lawsuits from unhappy workers and investors. Cohen has had other legal problems. He could not explain what had become of $350,000 held in a trust account he managed.

Anyone in Trump's sphere that is not covered in sleaze?
The 60 minutes piece could be the most watched CNN program and that is going to certainly bum Trump out, or is he going to take credit for that too?
Wonder what he would say, 'I did Stormy'?

It would not be the first time that a woman broke a politican's neck. Let us hope for the best, friends.

If Trump actually succeeds in doing anything positive, he may succeed in breaking the back of far-right nationalists and the American wingnut movement through his own incompetence, malfeasance, dishonesty and criminality.

Donny seems to be more and more overtaxed - so let's be hopeful.

Another Storm Brewing

A former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with Donald J. Trump sued on Tuesday to be released from a 2016 legal agreement requiring her silence, becoming the second woman this month to challenge Trump allies’ efforts during the presidential campaign to bury stories about extramarital relationships.

And Yet Another

(Reuters) - A defamation lawsuit filed against U.S. President Donald Trump by a contestant on his former reality show “The Apprentice” who accused him of sexual harassment can proceed, a New York state judge ruled on Tuesday, raising the possibility of Trump being forced to answer questions about his behavior toward women...

The ruling could force Trump to submit to questioning by lawyers for Zervos and lead to further public scrutiny of other claims of sexual misconduct that have been made against the president.

^^^^ Yes! If nothing else, he’s going to be spending a lot of his ill-gotten money on very expensive lawyers. And perhaps a few “Christian” eyes will be opened to his disgusting behavior.

Can’t he raise money from private donors?
I don’t expect Trump to spend his own money on anything unless he can get it elsewhere.
