Michael Cohen's Middle Name is Dean

Dean is an English masculine given name and middle name with several origins:
Derived from the Greek word "δεκανός" ("dekanos"), which means "monk or dignitary in charge of ten others," see also Dean (Christianity);
Derived from the English surname Dean, from an Anglo-Saxon word meaning "valley";
An Anglicization of the Arabic name Dīn, meaning "religion," with spelling influenced by the above names (also spelled "Deen").

"And a Jewish court of law is a bit din." ~ Andy Finkle tweet, February 27, 2019.

John Wesley Dean III
October 14, 1938 (age 80)
Akron, Ohio, U.S.

Dean was born in Akron, Ohio, and lived in Marion, the hometown of the 29th President of the United States, Warren Harding, whose biographer he later became. Thereafter, his family moved to Flossmoor, Illinois, where he attended grade school through the eighth grade. For high school, he attended Staunton Military Academy in Virginia. He initially attended Colgate University, and then The College of Wooster in Ohio, where he obtained his B.A. in 1961. He received a Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1965.
Dean married Karla Ann Hennings on February 4, 1962; they had one child, John Wesley Dean IV, before divorcing in 1970. Dean married Maureen (Mo) Kane on October 13, 1972.

Michael Dean Cohen
August 25, 1966 (age 52)
Long Island, New York, U.S.

Cohen grew up in the town of Lawrence on Long Island, New York. His mother was a nurse, and his father, who survived the Holocaust, was a surgeon. Cohen is Jewish. He attended Lawrence Woodmere Academy and received his BA from American University in 1988 and his JD from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 1991.
Cohen married Ukraine-born Laura Shusterman in 1994. Laura Shusterman's father, Fima Shusterman, left Soviet Ukraine for New York in 1975. Cohen has a daughter, Samantha, and a son, Jake. Cohen's wife, according to the Wall Street Journal, is implicated in potential criminal activity, and Cohen's father-in-law is the one who introduced him to Trump according to a Trump biographer. Cohen's uncle is a doctor who treated members of the Lucchese crime family. The uncle owned "El Caribe Country Club," known to be frequented by individuals associated with the Russian mafia: Evsei Agron, Marat Balagula, and Boris Nayfeld.
Before joining the Trump Organization, Cohen had purchased several homes in Trump's buildings. A 2017 New York Times article reported that Cohen is known for having "a penchant for luxury"; he was married at The Pierre, drove a Porsche while attending college, and once owned a Bentley.

Twitter has had its say:

In the Midst of the Yankees and Cowboy War

Michael Cohen has alluded to a danger to his wife and children. Where would he come up with such ideas?

"I don't say this to my people. They'd think I'm nuts. I think the CIA killed Dorothy Hunt." -Charles Colson, Time, July 8, 1974.

Of course, Cohen only has to look to the days of the Watergate investigation to some strange goings-on. Take for instance, the death of the partner of a Watergate chess piece. In the book, Dorothy, "An Amoral and Dangerous Woman": The Murder of E. Howard Hunt's Wife - Watergate's Darkest Secret, the essence of this mystery is presented in the below passage.

By the way, who wrote the foreword to this book? None other than Trump friend and probable co-conspirator Roger Stone!

Secret Honor
Secret Honor is a 1984 film written by Donald Freed and Arnold M. Stone (based on their play), directed by Robert Altman and starring Philip Baker Hall as former president Richard M. Nixon, a fictional account attempting to gain insight into Nixon's personality, life, attitudes and behavior. It was filmed at the University of Michigan.

Secret Honor by Stone and Freed implies that Nixon deliberately sacrificed his presidency to save democracy from a plan to implement martial law. The theory uses the construct of "Yankees" vs. "Cowboys" to suggest that, since the postwar era, the United States has been dominated by Yankees competing with Cowboys. Nixon, who hailed from the Southwest, was initially backed by the military industrial defense contractor power-brokers (the Cowboys); however, he later wanted to jump ship and return government to the east-coast establishment of Yankees. His resignation accomplished this because Nelson Rockefeller, the epitome of the eastern economic elite, assumed the vice presidency after Nixon's resignation.
James Neal who prosecuted the Watergate 7 did not believe Nixon had ordered the break in because of Nixon's surprised reaction when he was told about it. He cited the June 23, 1972 conversation when Nixon asked Haldeman: "Who was the asshole that did it?".



February 27, 2019
Edward Nixon, the youngest and last surviving brother of President Richard Nixon, died today at a skilled nursing facility in Bothell, Washington. He was 88 years old.
Ed Nixon’s nieces and President Nixon’s daughters Tricia Nixon Cox and Julie Nixon Eisenhower said today:
“Since our father passed away 25 years ago, Uncle Ed was our family’s rock.
“The fifth and youngest son of Frank and Hannah Nixon was born with a practical mind and an ever-present, unassuming smile. During his 88 years, he was an ideal mentor and source of strength, whether in the Navy, as a distinguished member of the scientific community, or on his goodwill journeys all across the world.
“He was a source of guidance to our father, whose favorite little Eddie grew up into a renowned geologist with an infectious curiosity. He was always thinking, always working — never for his own benefit, but to uncover the answers to questions that science poses in our world.
“Ed Nixon lived a life that was purposeful, determined, and always interesting; his legacy of kindheartedness and the lessons of his mentorship will remain with us. It is very gratifying that Ed and Gay Lynne are together again.
“Our thoughts and prayers today, and in the coming days and weeks, are with Beth and Amy. Godspeed, Uncle Ed.”
Mr. Nixon worked on his brother’s successful presidential campaigns in 1968 and 1972 and served as Co-Chairman of the Nixon re-election committee in 1972.
“For some people, meeting me is one degree of separation from meeting my famous brother,” Ed Nixon wrote in 2009. “Dick was more than a brother. Because we never shared a boyhood, he assumed the role of assistant father and mentor. At the time of my birth, he was seventeen and getting ready to start college. But he realized he could be an important influence in my life, and he took his self-imposed responsibility seriously, always listening to his kid brother.”
“I considered Dick to be outgoing with his ears — not with his mouth. Through thought-provoking questions, he encouraged me to learn and solve problems. More than anyone else in the family, he could stand back from a contentious situation and give impartial and convincing advice,” he wrote.
Ed Nixon was an original member of the Board of Directors of the Richard Nixon Foundation.
A career geologist and expert on global energy use, Mr. Nixon spent six decades pursuing the responsible use of natural resources around the globe. Throughout his career, he served as an advisor to several cutting-edge companies in the field of Earth science.
Edward Calvert Nixon was born on May 3, 1930, in Whittier, California. He was the fifth and youngest child of Frank and Hannah Nixon, and named Edward after an English King, as was Nixon family tradition.
“Frank and Hannah Nixon raised five sons —Harold, Dick, Don, Arthur, and me— in a close-knit family, teaching us the importance of religious faith, traditional values, and a strong work ethic,” Ed Nixon wrote. “Family life revolved around Dad and Mom’s store, the Quaker church, and family gatherings.”
Mr. Nixon served in the United States Navy as a Naval Aviator, helicopter flight instructor, Assistant Professor of Naval Science at the University of Washington, and Naval Reserve Captain. He received a Master of Science in Geological Engineering from North Carolina State University, Raleigh and a Bachelor of Science in Geology from Duke University.
Mr. Nixon was president of Nixon World Enterprises, Inc., and Chairman of the Pyron Solar Advisory Board in San Diego.
“As the President’s brother and a geologist, I welcomed the chance to share my view of the Earth in many developing countries,” he wrote.
Since his brother’s groundbreaking and historic opening of the People’s Republic of China in 1972, Mr. Nixon made more than 30 important goodwill missions to the country, where he was always welcomed by high-level dignitaries alongside ordinary Chinese citizens, fondly remembering of his brother’s visit.
In addition, he was known to have traveled across the entire world six times.
In 2009, he published his first and only book, The Nixons: A Family Portrait, an intimate look into the Milhous and Nixon families. His book is an invaluable contribution to the historical record.
“While volumes have been written about Dick’s life, this book includes never-before-published material about him, our family, and my own life from a perspective only I can give,” he wrote.
Mr. Nixon is survived by his daughters Amelie “Amy” Peiffer and Elizabeth “Beth” Matheny. His wife of 57 years, Gay Lynne Nixon, died in 2014.
Information on funeral services will be released in the coming days.

The 88 reminds me of Back to the Future. I wonder if that ties in to this at all. I've seen that number popping up fairly-frequently recently.

Occult Fan, here's what Wikipedia has to say about 88:
88 is a white supremacist numerical code for "Heil Hitler." H is the eighth letter of the alphabet, so 88 = HH = Heil Hitler. One of the most common white supremacist symbols, 88 is used throughout the entire white supremacist movement, not just neo-Nazis.

I'm quite sure there are far more meanings than that one single Wikipedia reference. 88 is 16, and that is itself 7. I would suggest taking a broader understanding, certainly worth focusing on the more applicable light side of the maths themselves... Cheers.
