Boy Michael Cohen is certainly popular lately. 

Courtesy of the AP:

Investigators in New York state issued a subpoena to Michael Cohen as part of their probe into the Trump Foundation, an official with Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

The subpoena was issued after Cohen’s attorney said his client has information of interest to both state and federal prosecutors. As Trump’s longtime lawyer and self-described “fixer,” Cohen could potentially be a significant source of information for state investigators looking into whether Trump or his charity broke state law or lied about their tax liability.

“We can confirm that a subpoena has been issued to Michael Cohen for relevant information in light of the public disclosures made yesterday,” said James Gazzale, a spokesman for the state’s tax department.

If evidence of alleged crimes is found, the matter could be referred to prosecutors, who could pursue criminal charges and seek the release of Trump’s tax returns. Anyone charged with a state crime in relation to the investigation.

Oh, this is getting better and better.

By the way, presidential pardons do not affect convictions for state crimes.

    If Trump shot Michael Cohen in broad daylight, here’s what Republicans would say

    You can just imagine the tweets, denials and equivocating that would follow a murder committed by Trump on Fifth Avenue, can’t you?

    The train wreck of Trump’s life is finally being exposed.

    …Trump watched as his former personal attorney stood in a Manhattan courtroom and began the process that will amount to a beautiful, brutal, and richly deserved betrayal of his former friend and client, the president of the United States. Cohen, as I’ve written before, has the keys to the Trump Kingdom.

    He was the keeper of a gigantic pyramid of evidence, experience, and inside-the-Tower knowledge. He’s the sticky-fingered archivist of emails, text messages, documents, contemporaneous notes, recordings, NDAs, contracts, medical records, and who knows what kind of sketchy bank paperwork, used pregnancy test kits, DNA swabs, and Hefty trash bags full of crusty hotel sheets that would glow vividly under UV light.

      “The a$$ociative property of Trump’s reality-TV glamour, his crude fame, his various blandishments, and his seductive promises of fame, wealth, and empowerment have long lured in $ucker$.”
      “rump is the alpha DOG con man” “For outside observers, it was a thing of karmic beauty. For years, victims of Trump’s utter lack of loyalty to anything but his monstrous ego, rapacious greed, and whatever caused his last erection felt almost entirely powerless. They were victims of a man with a corporate organization designed from the ground up to fuck over his latest partners, contractors, wives, and hoochies-du-jour.”
      “After so many long years of escaping consequences for his failures, his reprobate behavior, and his lack of any sense of honor or honesty, the Con Man in Chief is facing people who can tell his story outside the power of his tweeted and televised narrative. He doesn’t like ~IT~.”

    GOP analyst Rick Wilson flattens Trump after his rambling Fox News interview: He’s a ‘terrified old man’

    …Pointing to Trump’s middle of the night all-cap tweet about “No collusion,” Wilson called the president out.

    “Waking up in the middle of the night to tweet in all caps is not a sign of confident leadership — it’s a sign of a terrified old man who feels the walls closing in,” he remarked. “He’s basically a bluffer and he’ll try to double down on this “I’m perfect and the rest of you are lying’ theory in regards to the cases.”

    ‘Mr Giuliani, however, said he believed Mr Trump has been “completely cleared” by Cohen’s testimony, saying it was “inevitable” that he would not be impeached.

    “You have this Cohen guy, he doesn’t know anything about Russian collusion, he doesn’t know anything about obstruction, he’s a massive liar,””

      “The report noted that Trump was furious that federal prosecutors were trying to “beat up” Manafort. Of course, the term “beat up” translates to “hold him accountable” for anyone who cares about the rule of law.”
      “The United States is being run by a man who doesn’t even believe in the laws he swore an oath to protect. He only believes in blind loyalty to himself.’

    ‘“There’s no doubt that in the president’s mind it’s really only just a matter of when he’s able to do this, not if he’s able to do it,” ‘

    ‘“I put in an attorney general who never took control of the Justice Department,”

    “At the U.S. Capitol, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who is both close to Trump and a defender of Sessions, said he believed Trump would appoint a new attorney general but should wait until after November congressional elections.”

    ““He clearly wants to cooperate. He might have to plead to additional crimes if he is responsible for committing them. The SDNY plea agreement does not preclude additional charges by Mueller.”

    As McQuade sees it, Cohen’s cooperation could further implicate Trump or his associates in Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election. More specifically, there are at least three subject areas that Cohen could help shed light on as Mueller does his digging. They include the following:

    The infamous 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russians and the Trump campaign to get “dirt” on Hillary Clinton

    Efforts to build a Trump Tower Moscow, which stretched into the 2016 presidential campaign

    A 2017 Ukrainian “peace plan” delivered to the White House that would have lifted U.S. sanctions on Russia’

    GOAL! CRIMEa Port$!
