DT lawyer Michael Cohen has an alias. I wonder if the alias has a passport.

Remember that the Steele dossier claims that Cohen was in Prague and Cohen denied it?

Maybe Mr. Hacking was in Prague.

1. Michael Hacking is name of one of Cohen's many taxicab companies, not exactly an alias

See this article from Feb. by Josh Marshall mentioning the taxicab company. Michael Cohen has about two dozen different NYC taxi cab companies registered under different names of which Sir Michael Hacking is one of his companies.

"SIR MICHAEL HACKING CORP. is corporation filed with the New York State Department of State (NYSDOS). The DOS ID is 2124629. The business entity is incorporated in New York County. The entity type is DOMESTIC BUSINESS CORPORATION. The initial DOS filing date is 03/19/1997. The address is 502 Park Avenue / #10a, New York, New York 10022. The city is New York, New York. The zip code is 10022. The CEO name is MICHAEL COHEN."

"Before Cohen hooked up with Trump (circa 2006-07), Cohen made a lot of money in the New York City taxi business. A friend mentioned this to me this morning. Sure enough it’s discussed in this story in The Wall Street Journal from January. How’d Cohen get into the taxi business? That’s not clear. But his business partner was a law client named Simon Garber, who the Journal describes as a “Ukrainian-born taxi baron.”

Cohen sold his share of the business to Garber in the early aughts before he hooked up with Trump, though for whatever reason, as the Journal notes, he “remains listed on New York City taxi and state corporation records as owning some taxi medallions through companies with colorful names such as Sir Michael Hacking Corp. and Mad Dog Cab Corp.”

It seems like the taxi business may be where Cohen first became a wealthy man and it may have been his income from the taxi business which allowed him to start snapping up Trump apartment properties, how Cohen first came to Trump’s attention. But that wasn’t the only business Cohen was in around that time. About the same time Cohen set up another business with two other Ukrainian immigrants, Arkady Vaygensberg and Leonid Tatarchuk.

This was MLA Cruises, a Florida company which took patrons on cruises outside US territorial waters to gamble. Cohen was CEO. MLA Cruises collapsed in a welter of lawsuits mainly targeting Vaygensberg and Tatarchuk. MLA Cruises may not have been as successful. But it’s still quite a fascinating business to have been in."

4. The lawsuit says that Michael Hacking is an individual -- not a company.

Maybe he named that taxi company after his alias.

https://trump-russia.com/2017/04/14/why-did-a-russian-nhl-player-sue-trumps-lawyer-michael-cohen/

Vladimir Malakhov is a Russian-born retired professional hockey player. He was active in the NHL 1992 to 2006, playing for the New York Islanders, the Montreal Canadiens, and the New Jersey Devils.

In January of 1999, Malakhov wrote a check for $350,000 to Michael D. Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer. The check was deposited — and then the money disappeared.

What happened to the money and how this check came to be written to Michael Cohen was the subject of years of litigation in Circuit Court in Miami, Florida. (See Fomina v. Netscheret, 2006-001330-CA-01.)

Malakhov sued Cohen (/a/k/a “Michael D. Hacking”) in 2010 in Miami Circuit Court. (Malakov v. Cohen, 2010-14576-CA-03). I’ve embedded the lawsuit at the bottom of this post.

2. Money Laundering

Both businesses sound like the type of cash heavy operations that would be attractive to someone wanting to filter dirty money.
