In his answer, Cohen speculated that Trump had committed tax fraud and that the answers were to Trump's financial statements with his tax returns.

"It just shows that what some consider to be" unskilled labor "may in fact be anything other than . Cohen accuses Trump of lying about his knowledge of the controversial Trump Tower meeting between his campaign and Russian officials promising the "dirt" of his opponent in the Democratic Party Hillary Clinton.
The president denied knowing in advance the meeting attended by his former campaign manager, Paul Mannorth, the eldest son Donald Trump Jr., and his son-in-law Jared Kouchner and a Russian lawyer with ties to the Kremlin. The meeting was investigated by Special Adviser Robert Muller.
Cohen also testified that Trump knew in advance the emails stolen from Hillary Clinton's campaign by Russian hackers because his friend Roger Stone, who was in contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, had told him on the phone , for which Cohen was present.
Mueller has filed charges against Stone for his fake statements to Congress about his contacts with WikiLeaks and Assange. the president had told him that the blacks were "too stupid" to vote for him. Tourmaps was charged with tax fraud and financial misconduct and was in prison for three years.
Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, dismissed Cohen's appearance on the Capitol Hill as inappropriate, saying in a statement he was a "spoiled criminal" and that he was "given another opportunity to spread his lies."

Bartending + a waitress (especially in New York) means talking to thousands of people over the years. Forcing you to enjoy human reading + a sophisticated sharp shave detector.
It simply shows that what some consider to be "unskilled labor" may in fact be anything but
