Missing Files Motivated The Leak Of Michael Cohen's Financial Records

Source: The New Yorker

Last week, several news outlets obtained financial records showing that Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, had used a shell company to receive payments from various firms with business before the Trump Administration.
A law-enforcement official released the documents after finding that additional suspicious transactions did not appear in a government database.

...  two previous suspicious-activity reports, or sars, ... were absent from the database maintained by the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FINCEN.
“I have never seen something pulled off the system. . . . That system is a safeguard for the bank. It’s a stockpile of information. When something’s not there that should be, I immediately became concerned.”
