EXCLUSIVE: Taxi mogul who borrowed millions from Michael Cohen swears it wasn’t for his weed business

A legal-weed startup in Nevada that’s been dogged by reports of links to President Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, is denying any connection to the embattled lawyer, VICE News has learned.

Chicago taxi mogul Semyon “Sam” Shtayner, 63, and his wife reportedly borrowed $26 million in recent years from Cohen and his father-in-law, Fima Shusterman — just as Shtayner was launching a legal weed venture in Henderson, Nevada.

“Question 3 would eliminate the consumer protections that help to keep a lid on Nevada’s electric rates,” Guzman said...
