MICHAEL COHEN: Ex-Trump Lawyer Investigated for $20 Million Bank Fraud
Donald Trump's former lawyer appears to be in deep trouble. Federal authorities are looking into his possible bank and tax fraud. They're focusing on more than $20 million in loans taken out for taxi businesses owned by Cohen and his family, say sources familiar with the investigation.
Two sources say investigators are also checking to see whether the 52-year-old Cohen broke campaign finance and other laws by helping to arrange payouts to women who claimed to have sexual encounters with Trump. Those charges could come by the end of the month. (The New York Times)
Chuck Schumer Calls Out The FDA Over Weed Killer Chemical Found In Cereal -
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling on the FDA to release its findings on the presence of a popular weed-killer found in everyday foods.
A report released by the Environmental Working Group last week found traces of cancer-causing glyphosate [[ gly-fo-sayt ]] in such foods as breakfast cereals, granola bars and oatmeal, among others.
Schumer says the Food and Drug Administration has been conducting its own investigation into the chemical, which is an ingredient in the pesticide Roundup, but is “sitting” on the results. The senator says that is not acceptable.
