5. Separating Investigations

Many people are getting the two investigations conflated but they are separate. The Southern District of New York is the team that wants the heaviest sentence for Michael Cohen. They are the entity that have investigated him for income tax fraud and campaign funds violations. The SDNY has indicted Cohen for NY Fed State crimes whereas Mueller is investigating violations of federal laws connected to Russia hacking and collusion of those connected to Trump's campaign.

The Mueller memo on Cohen was about his involvement with Russia which also links Trump, Trump's Foundation and Trump's company with Russia. There is also clear indications in the filing of the Mueller memo on Cohen that there has been obstruction of justice.

Mueller has yet to reveal his memo and recommendations on his investigation but the Southern District appears ready to move forward with the sentencing of Michael Cohen over violations of New York State federal laws.

As mentioned above, the Foreign Corrupt Practice Act is what Mueller is looking at if Cohen offered, (on Trump's behalf), a 50 mil penthouse in exchange for allowing Trump Moscow Hotel to be built. This was against the law because they were attempting to do this deal while Trump had already been chosen as the GOP presidential candidate not merely one of the many hopefuls running prior to being nominated in GOP convention candidate.
