Roy Cohn was approached by a young Donald Trump to help the Trumps in a case being brought against them for racial discrimination. This developed into such a deep friendship between Cohn and Trump that Trump would call Cohn his "greatest friend".
Now, the funny thing about Permindex is that it became known as Intertel, which was bought by the CIA/mob moneylaundering front Resorts International, which was bought in 1987 by...Donald J Trump.
Trump and Cohn became close to Roger Stone. While Trump called Cohn his "greatest friend", Stone called Cohn his hero.
Stone was, and perhaps still is, a Republican party dirty trickster. Millions of dead and impoverished around the world should be thankful for Roger Stone and his dirty tricks:
1. Rupert Murdoch's Fox News called Florida for Bush in 2000, when everyone else had Florida for Gore. This led to a recount which was stopped by the Brooks Brothers Riot organised by Stone. This then led to George W Bush entering the White House where he was surrounded by bloodthirsty PNACers foaming at the mouth for their war agenda which was kicked off by the inside job 9/11;
2. Stone scuttled Eliot Spitzer's investigation into Wall Street which led to the financial crisis of 2007/8 and the subsequent global austerity that 99% of us around the world have suffered to one degree or another.
Stone is now a regular guest on Infowhores pushing Trump as our saviour.
So it is no surprise that Stone bought American democracy for Roy Cohn through a bribe of $125k.
Stone, who going back to his class elections in high school has been a proponent of recruiting patsy candidates to split the other guy's support, remembers suggesting to Cohn that if they could figure out a way to make John Anderson the Liberal party nominee in New York, with Jimmy Carter picking up the Democratic nod, Reagan might win the state in a three-way race. "Roy says, 'Let me look into it.'" Cohn then told him, "'You need to go visit this lawyer'--a lawyer who shall remain nameless--'and see what his number is.' I said, 'Roy, I don't understand.' Roy says, 'How much cash he wants, dumbf--.'" Stone balked when he found out the guy wanted $125,000 in cash to grease the skids, and Cohn wanted to know what the problem was. Stone told him he didn't have $125,000, and Cohn said, "That's not the problem. How does he want it?"
Cohn sent Stone on an errand a few days later. "There's a suitcase," Stone says. "I don't look in the suitcase . . . I don't even know what was in the suitcase . . . I take the suitcase to the law office. I drop it off. Two days later, they have a convention. Liberals decide they're endorsing John Anderson for president. It's a three-way race now in New York State. Reagan wins with 46 percent of the vote. I paid his law firm. Legal fees. I don't know what he did for the money, but whatever it was, the Liberal party reached its right conclusion out of a matter of principle."
