Thanks to Stormy & @MichaelAvenatti, we now have a much greater understanding of how Trump's Michael Cohen-based #PayToPlay funnel works.

It looks a lot like Cohen was selling access & influence.

#TrumpRussia - #KleptoWatch💰

2/9 Avenatti's investigation has uncovered numerous payments to Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, from individuals & entities seeking favor from or access to President Trump. #PayToPlay #FollowTheMoney

Executive Summary:…
3/9 Viktor Vekelsberg is a Putin-connected oligarch recently questioned by #Mueller as part of the #TrumpRussia probe.

$500K transferred between Vekelsberg's US subsidiary company & Cohen raise significant questions about Putin's influence on U.S. policy.
4/9 Elliott Broidy claimed Cohen represented him in a $1.6m settlement w/a Playboy Playmate. He also stands to personally make $10s of millions if DOJ drops a bribery case against a Malaysian state investment fund.

Avenatti's investigation turned up $187.5K in payments to Cohen.
5/9 In addition to the unusual payments Broidy made to Cohen for the type of work Cohen claims he did, there is a significant question as to whether Broidy may be intentionally claiming credit for the affair to protect the president & buy influence.…
6/9 AT&T paid Cohen $200K while Trump was publicly attacking its proposed merger with Time Warner, CNN's parent company, which would need DOJ approval.…
7/9 Novartis paid Cohen nearly $400K in 4 structured transactions of $99,980 each.

Shortly after the final payment was made, Novartis' CEO got a private dinner w/the president.

Trump has sway over decisions regarding drug regulation & pricing. #PayToPlay…
8/9 Korea Aerospace paid Cohen $150K while simultaneously vying for a multi-trillion dollar contract with the US Airforce, a decision that Trump has a great deal of influence over as Commander in Chief. #PayToPlay…
9/9 We still have limited info about both $$ in and $$ out of Michael Cohen's account.

Avenatti says far more cash flowed into Cohen's LLC than has been revealed & we don't know where it went after.

Cohen is now under tremendous pressure. #FollowTheMoney…
