IRS Analyst Charged with Leaking Cohen's Bank Records

An  IRS analyst  has been charged with leaking confidential information about Michael Cohen's bank records.  Federal prosecutors  indicted John C.

Fry on Thursday on the charge of unauthorized disclosure of a banking document.  They say Fry, who works for the IRS' law enforcement division, turned over Cohen's bank reports to attorney Michael Avenatti last year.

Fry also allegedly confirmed some of that financial information to a reporter for The New Yorker.  Cohen's bank transactions became public last May when Avenatti posted  a memo online .

It outlined a number of  payments made to Cohen , who used to be President Donald Trump's personal lawyer.  The payments in question were tied to pharmaceutical company Novartis, a Russian oligarch's U.S. firm, AT&T and others.  At the time,  the Treasury Department 's internal watchdog looked into where Avenatti got his information, because Cohen was under investigation for financial crimes.  Fry's hearing is scheduled for March 13.  CNN reports  prosecutors may seek two more charges: misuse of a Social Security number and misuse of a government computer.
