FBI agents said to be probing Michael Cohen’s deal with Korean firm

KAI, by contrast, has defended its decision to hire Cohen’s company. A spokesman, Oh Sung-keun, said last week that the firm did not know of Cohen’s connection to Trump when it hired Essential Consultants, which Cohen set up shortly before Trump was elected.

Yeh, right.

KAI just barely recovered from a rather large scandal as well. One of the VP's committed suicide because of it.

Not exactly a squeaky clean company.

Stop. Please for the love of god can you please fucking stop.

This is fucking RIDICULOUS.

The news today is just too fucking crazy holy fuck.

I seriously punishing my f5 today.

My wife and I watch Korean dramas and practically every one involves some level of scandal at a chaebol (basically, corporation). So another KAI scandal is basically just a Season 2 arc for Koreans viewers at this point.

A California man who says he served as a translator last year for Michael Cohen and a South Korean aerospace firm that paid Cohen’s company $150,000 said Tuesday that FBI agents recently interviewed him.

Mark Ko said in an email to The Washington Post that he spoke with the FBI about the arrangement “a few weeks ago.” Ko declined to provide details about investigators’ inquiries and said he was unsure whether the agents were part of the probe led by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

Ko’s statement is the first indication that federal authorities are examining Cohen’s contract with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) — one of several companies with substantial business before the U.S. government that hired Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney and longtime legal fixer, after the 2016 election.

...

KAI ... has defended its decision to hire Cohen’s company. A spokesman, Oh Sung-keun, said last week that the firm did not know of Cohen’s connection to Trump when it hired Essential Consultants, which Cohen set up shortly before Trump was elected.

Oh said the firm paid Cohen’s company for legal advice related to U.S. accounting procedures, including bookkeeping rules required under government contracts.

Cohen has no known experience in government accounting. A former personal injury attorney from Long Island, he was a real estate attorney and self-described fixer for the Trump Organization for ten years before striking out on his own in January 2017.

...

KAI, whose majority owner is the South Korean government, is partnered with U.S.-based defense contractor Lockheed Martin in vying for a major contract to provide the U.S. Air Force with trainer jets. The contract could be worth more than $16 billion.

Michael Cohen and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Lmfao I can't believe they even tried. Yeah, he's just some random shitty lawyer. And we have no idea who the people hire for work are.

Yup. Cohen is gonna get Manafucked.

Operating as an unregistered agent if a foreign power anyone? I hear it's popular these days.

I think it's over now. It's safe to go outside again.

lmao...

His email literally says counsel/Attorney to the president of the united states or whatever the fuck lmao

My F5 key is almost as damaged as my liver

They get pretty far out there. One our favorite ones involved an alien who was immortal that fell in love with an actress.

Then again, another one we loved was basically The Office except without anything funny ever being said or happening.

I have a solid two hours of reading to do when I get home today at this point, holy shit.

Not sure they can top the crazy plot lines reality is delivering.

Must be infrastructure week.

I can't even keep track any more...I glance over headlines and see that the pillar of flames coming off this biblically-proportioned dumpster fire of an administration is growing to previously unimaginable heights on a daily basis.

I don't believe you.

Cohen is straight up FUCKED. Jr is fucked too but not near as much.

Oh, and tomorrow might get really fucking crazy. Its the anniversary of mueller being appointed. Maybe everything hit today. Maybe not.

I really wouldn't be surprised with an indictment tomorrow.

Pretty sure that if Cohen was actually providing them legal advice, he would have listed their name as a client in that Hannifucked hearing two weeks ago.

Apparently he reached out to Ford by saying he had an "in" with Trump. He's a huge name dropper. I can't wait to see other companies try to cover up their money trail when it eventually comes out.

The firm did not know of Cohen’s connection to Trump when it hired Essential Consultants, which Cohen set up shortly before Trump was elected.

Yeah, sure.

We just heard great things about Essential Consultants. That brand new upstart. The one with zero employees. With that guy with no experience. The one that exclusively pays off porn stars. Who's Michael Cohen again?

It’s got whiskey all over it

Whomever starts an F5 keyboard repair business may become a billionaire by the time this is all over (assuming we don't have to switch our current kbs over to Cyrilic).

It actually is infrastructure week. Haha. No joke it seriously is until the 21st.

It sounds like your keyboard has a problem.

Ice Cube wandered in last week, so at this point if an alien somehow found its way into the plot line I'd probably just shrug.

Breaking: Law Enforcement probing everything Trump and associates have ever done, but nothing to see here folks!

/sub/keep_track

No, Misaeng is pretty unique, at least in my experience - and I highly recommend it. Most of the other ones we've watched have been pretty fantastical (involving ghosts, aliens, spies, etc). Nine times out of ten there tends to be some kind of chaebol corruption plot, regardless of the general story.

They had no idea the guy that signs all of his emails "Personal Attorney to Donald Trump" and whose sales pitch to other companies was "Fire the rest, I'm donald's best"...

...they had no idea he was connected to donald???

I'm struggling to understand the implications of all this
