Cohen said he made payments on Trump's orders to hire some dirtbag from Liberty University (what a shock) to skew online polls.


Michael Cohen in a tweet Thursday morning more or less confirmed a Wall Street Journal report that he paid an IT specialist in early 2015 for rigging two online polls in favor of President Trump.

The tweet said that what Cohen did was “at the direction of and for the sole benefit” of Trump. Cohen was reimbursed for the payment — purportedly some $12,000 handed to the specialist in cash, though Cohen claims it was a check — with $50,000 from Trump and his company, according to the Journal.


Michael Cohen
As for the @WSJ article on poll rigging, what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it.

Gauger received the $12,000 to $13,000 in a Walmart bag that also contained a boxing glove Cohen claimed had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter, the Journal reported

Cohen never paid the specialist, John Gauger, the rest of the $50,000 he owed, Gauger told the Journal.

Gauger, whose company is called RedFinch Solutions LLC, is also the chief information officer at Liberty University in Virginia, according to the Journal, which is how he first connected with Cohen in 2012, after a speech Trump gave at the evangelical university run by Jerry Falwell, Jr.
