Cohen said, "I think."
The total replacement is as follows:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: First of all, my Vermont colleague asked more about AMI, the National Enquirer parent company, and mentioned the "treasure training" of David Pecker's office documents that cover all the information collected on such catches. against people who contained potentially harmful information to the president. He also mentioned that the President was very concerned about the whereabouts of the documents and owned them. Do the treasures of the documents still exist?
Michael Cohen: I do not know. I asked David Pecker with them.
Cortez-OCCASIONSo would you say that the person who knows the place of these documents would be David Pecker?
CohenDavid Pecker, Barry Levine or Dylan Howard.
Cortez-OCCASION: OK thank you. Secondly, I would like to ask a little bit about the discussion with my colleague in Missouri about inflation. Did you know that the President has ever provided inflated assets to an insurance company?
Cortez-OCCASION: Who else knows that the president did this?
Cohen: Allen Weisselberg, Ron Lieberman and Matthew Calamari.
Cortez-OCCASION: And where would the committee find more information about this? Do you think we need to review your financial statements and tax returns to compare them?
Cohen: Yes, and you would find it on Trump Org.
Cortez-OCCASION: Thank you very much. The last thing here. Trump Golf is currently a golf course in Bronx, Trump [Golf] Links. Every day I go between Bronx and Queens. In fact, The Washington Post announced an article about the Trump Links Bronx course titled "Taxpayers have built this New York golf course and Trump grabs the reward." This article is where many people in New York and the country have learned that taxpayers have spent $ 127 million to build Trump Links in a "generous shop" that has allowed Trump to "keep almost any inflow of dollars." A public golf course. And this does not seem to be the only time Trump got to the detriment of the public. Mr. Cohen, I would like to ask you a statement that the President may miscalculate his assets to avoid paying taxes. August 24th 21, in 2016, the Washington Post report, while the President, in a financial disclosure form, claimed that Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, had more than $ 50 million, otherwise he told the local tax authorities that the value of the course was no more than $ 50 million. $ 5 Million. "Mr. Cohen, do you know this particular report is accurate?
Cohen: This is what he did at Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Castle.
Cortez-OCCASION: Do you know that the President was interested in reducing your local property accounts? Tax Account?
Cortez-OCCASION: And how did he do that?
Cohen: What you do is lower the value of the device and then ask the tax office to deduct it.
Cortez-OCCASION: Thanks. Now, in October 2018, the New York Times revealed that "President Trump participated in dubious tax systems in the 1990s, including cases of straightforward fraud, which greatly increased the luck of his parents." In addition, Mr. Trump claims that “he has also helped develop the strategy of evaluating the property sales of parents with hundreds of millions of dollars in tax returns, significantly reducing the tax bill when he handed over these properties to him and his brothers and sisters. "Mr. Cohen, do you know this particular report is accurate?
Cohen: I do not. I wasn't there in the 1990s.
Cortez-OCCASION: Who knows the answer to these questions?
Cohen: Allen Weisselberg.
Cortez-OCCASION: And would it help the committee to get federal and state tax returns from the president and company to handle this divergence?
Cohen: I think yes.
Cortez-OCCASION: Thank you very much. The rest of the time I give to the president.
