Volkov Law — In the News and on the Web
Michael Volkov Quoted by ABC News: Michael Avenatti casts himself as anti-Trump avenger, May 16, 2018 HERE
The inspector general of the Treasury Department is now investigating possible leaks of Suspicious Activity Reports, or SARs, from Cohen’s financial institutions.
“Suspicious activity reports are confidential. They’re not allowed to be leaked,” said Michael Volkov, a white-collar defense lawyer who spent seventeen years as a federal prosecutor in Washington, D.C.
Volkov notes that the disclosure of the records came after Avenatti had spent weeks publicly cajoling the Treasury Department to release the reports, employing the Twitter hashtag, “#ReleaseTheSARs.”
“He’s a PR show and he’s trying to serve as a focal point for people to deliver information to,” Volkov said. “He’s marketing, ‘Please bring the information on this stuff.’ And he’s good at it. Look, give the guy credit, he’s good at it. He doesn’t have an army of lawyers behind him.”
