He wasn’t involved in the Trump Organization’s core business.
For Mr. Cohen to claim he had major decision-making authority at the Trump Organization is ridiculous. He told Congress he was a “fixer.” I’d put it this way: He was hired muscle; a bluffing, boasting New Yorker who could shock people into action. He did chase licensing deals and outlandish opportunities, but he never delivered. Trump Moscow was a fantasy that no one in the office took seriously.
