Federal prosecutors with the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York are investigating whether President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, engaged in illegal lobbying.
The new front in the Cohen probe focuses on the payments he accepted from companies such as AT&T and Novartis after Trump’s 2016 victory.
Cohen did not register as a lobbyist.

Federal prosecutors with the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York are investigating whether President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, engaged in illegal lobbying as part of the wide-ranging criminal probe into the attorney, people familiar with the investigation told The Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

Prosecutors have contacted some of the companies that hired Cohen as a consultant after Trump’s 2016 electoral win, including AT&T and the pharmaceutical company Novartis. Those companies paid Cohen in excess of $1.8 million for his insights, and Cohen did not disclose those payments prior to their publication by Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn star Stormy Daniels.See the rest of the story at Business Insider

See inside the 15 most expensive penthouses for sale in America

sunny isles penthouse floridaListing from Trulia

Penthouses evoke luxury, particularly thanks to the stunning panoramic views their high-in-the-sky location affords.
With the help of Trulia, we compiled the 15 most expensive penthouses for sale in the US with amazing views.
Most of the penthouses overlook the beach or a city, with New York City penthouses being among the most expensive.

What more fitting place for the top 1% to live than, quite literally, at the top?

Perched in the sky, penthouses offer everything from exclusive amenities and lavish architecture to rooftop gardens and pools, with views as stunning as their interiors.

We teamed up with Trulia to compile a list of the top 15 most expensive penthouses with the most amazing views for sale in the US as of May 23.

It may come as no surprise that these palaces in the sky boast either beach or city views. Even less surprising, still, is the fact that New York City dominated this list — there must be something about panoramic views of the concrete jungle that rich people can’t get enough of.

From a $35 million coastal pad in Honolulu, Hawaii, to an $82 million contemporary penthouse overlooking New York’s Central Park, here are the priciest penthouses in the country, ranked from least to most expensive.
