Michael Cohen GoFundMe Raises Over $140,000 In Two Days

“Michael Cohen Truth Fund”

August 23rd, 2018 – On Tuesday, Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations while also implicating Donald Trump as an unindicted co-conspirator saying he made payments “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office.” By Thursday, the president’s former lawyer had raised more than $140,000 on GoFundMe to continue fighting his legal battles.

For math fans, that’s $10,000 more than Cohen paid adult film star Stormy Daniels to stay quiet before the 2016 election about an alleged affair she had with Trump. The GoFundMe page, titled the “Michael Cohen Truth Fund,” was created by Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis.

“On July 2, 2018, Michael Cohen declared his independence from Donald Trump and his commitment to tell the truth,” the site reads.

“On August 21, Michael Cohen made the decision to take legal responsibility and to continue his commitment to tell the truth. Michael decided to put his family and his country first.  Now Michael needs your financial help — to pay his legal fees.

The Michael Cohen Truth Fund is a transparent trust account, with all donations going to help Michael Cohen and his family as he goes forward on his journey to tell the truth about Donald Trump.”

Up until April, Cohen was a staunch defender of the president, once saying he would take a bullet for Trump. Since federal officers used a warrant to raid his home, office, and hotel room, Cohen decided that he might not be too fond of bullets.

The former fixer has, through his lawyer, made it known that he has additional information that would be beneficial to Robert Mueller’s investigation. The two men claim, however, that Cohen doesn’t have the resources he needs to expose the truth. That’s where the generosity of strangers comes in. Over 2,500 people have made donations with amounts ranging from $5 to $50,000.

That generosity, though, isn’t being handed out by everybody. People quickly voiced their opposition to donating money to a man who bought a $6.7 million apartment in New York just last month and who once told a Daily Beast reporter to “tread “very fu**ing lightly because what I’m going to do to you is going to be fu**ing disgusting. Do you understand me?”

CNN talked to one woman who said she would donate to the fund because “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.” The amount she hypothetically settled on was $20. Her rationale?

“I give, like, $30 to World Wildlife Fund, so I can’t give more to Cohen than I give to pandas.”

The Michael Cohen Truth Fund has a goal of $500,000.
