As everyone knows by now, the Federal Bureau of Investigation today (April 9) raided the office of Michael Cohen, one of President Trump’s attorneys. The agency raided other locations where Cohen might keep his records.
Relax, San Diegans. The FBI has no interest in the Michael Cohen Law Group, which has offices in Palo Alto and San Diego, There is a huge difference between Trump’s Michael D. Cohen and our Michael H. Cohen. San Diego/Palo Alto’s Michael Cohen graduated from Columbia University; Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California, Berkeley; the Haas School of Management at Berkeley,and the Writer’s Workshop at the University of Iowa. He also served as assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School and as adjunct assistant professor at Harvard School of Public Health.
Trump’s lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, got his law degree from the Thomas M. Cooley Law School, now affiliated with Western Michigan University. According to Wikipedia, in 2017 the school was one of ten American law schools found to be out of compliance with the American Bar Association’s requirement that schools only admit students who appear capable of earningsa J.D. degree and passing the bar examination. The school was recently ranked the worst law school in the country by Above the Law. San Diego’s Thomas Jefferson School of Law was fifth worst.
