Michael Cohen Says Trump Directed Him To Rig Polls To Favour Him

President Trump former Lawyer, Michael Cohen has said he paid a tech firm thousands to help rig an online poll at the “the direction of and for the sole benefit of” Trump

He was responding to an article by the Wall Street Journal that said he paid John Gauger, the owner of RedFinch Solutions LLC, to help manipulate and rig two online polls in favour of then Presidential candidate, Donald Trump. The posts also said the firm created an twitter account named “@WomenForCohen” that promoted and praised Cohen’s looks as well as Trump’s candidacy.

He tweeted “As for the article on poll rigging, what I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of . I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it”

Gauger also told the paper he wasn’t fully paid for the work, although the reported  Cohen received $50,000 — the amount the two originally agreed for the services.
Cohen also revealed that all money paid to Gauger were by check and not in cash and then declined to comment further.
Commenting to the allegations, Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani said the allegations that Cohen kept a part of the money for himself shows he’s a thief.
WSJ also alleged that the payment with Cohen was reimbursed for the $50,000 around the same time he was also paid $130,000 for others expenses incurred during the campaign period. The $130,000 as a hush money payment to a woman who allegedly had an affair with Trump, which Trump denies.
