Michael Cohen Admits He Rigged Online Polls For Trump, Paid Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Tech Guy To Rig Polls
President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen confirmed a report by the Wall Street Journal that said he rigged online polls on CNBC and Drudge Report in favor of Trump “at the direction of and for the sole benefit of Donald Trump”:
The Wall Street Journal also reports that Cohen paid tech businessman John Gauger, now the chief information office at Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Liberty University, for help rigging online polls.
Gauger, who owns RedFinch Solutions LLC and oversees information technology at Liberty University, told the Wall Street Journal that he got a blue Walmart bag full of cash from Cohen, along with a boxing glove the attorney claimed had been worn by a Brazilian mixed-martial arts fighter.
Cohen said he paid Gauger by check. Gauger says he was never paid the full $50,000 he was promised.
