 In Corruption and Fraud, Polls   Last Updated: February 2, 2019

Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen admitted to a plan to rig polls to favor then Presidential candidate Trump early in the 2016 Presidential election campaign.  Cohen paid an IT firm $50,000 to target Drudge and CNBC polls in 2015.

In a tweet following the report, Cohen said he sought to help Trump’s political aspirations, having been directed by the candidate.  ‘What I did was at the direction of and for the sole benefit of [Trump],’ he wrote. ‘I truly regret my blind loyalty to a man who doesn’t deserve it.'”
