I think everyone else knows about it now because it's been in the headlines of newspapers and the lead story on the news. Tax evasion isn't just "one of those things." I pay my taxes and try to reduce what I have to pay, but I don't cheat. And I'm not wealthy; I could use some extra $. Maybe in their world I'm a "sucker." And Manafort was Trump's campaign chairman.J-Rod10 said:Tax evasion and such is one of those things. The federal government, the IRS, didn't know about it. In Manaforts case, for over a decade. How would anyone else?
I did get a laugh out of one of Cohen's charges. Failed to report the $30,000 profit made on a purse he sold online.
The purse charge is kind of funny. Out of curiosity, what do you think of the other $4 million that he didn't declare, avoiding some $1.4 million in taxes? What do you think about his admission that Stormy Daniels was paid off to avoid influencing the presidential campaign, and that payoff was lied about from Cohen and Trump?
