Ronan Farrow reveals to Rachel Maddow how he was able to obtain Michael Cohen’s confidential financial records
Investigative journalist Ronan Farrow appeared on Wednesday night’s Rachel Maddow Show to explain how he obtained the records that led to his latest break-through investigation into the Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen scandal.
As it turns out, an anonymous source grew alarmed that several suspicious activity reports had mysteriously disappeared from a law enforcement database that’s supposed to store them.
“The implications here are very, very big,” Maddow noted, before switching to Farrow to explain how he got the scoop.
Farrow concludes his New Yorker piece by noting, “The official who released the suspicious-activity reports was aware of the risks, but said fears that the missing reports might be suppressed compelled the disclosure. “We’ve accepted this as normal, and this is not normal,” the official said.”
