‘Stole from the Trump Organization’: Michael Cohen admits to yet another lie under cross-examination — and stealing $30,000 after rigging online polls for Trump

Efforts to undermine the credibility of Michael Cohen, 57, continued apace on Monday in New York County Supreme Courtroom 1530.

The prosecution’s case requires jurors to make one leap in particular: from Cohen’s admitted payment of $130,000 in hush-money to adult content creator Stormy Daniels, 45, to believing that payment was at the behest of — and was later on covered up by — Donald Trump, 77.

The defense believes the key to breaking the state’s logic apart resides in the fact that Cohen is a well-documented, and admitted, liar. And, if the multiple days of cross-examination are any indication, the 45th president’s team believes flogging that horse repeatedly will reveal the star witness’ testimony is fundamentally unreliable.
