Beat the System: A rich Gary Cohn got even richer by working for Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, pocketed somewhere between $47 million and $235 million by selling his Goldman Sachs stock earlier this year.

The sum was massively fattened as a result of the Goldman Sachs GS, -0.55% stock boom that has followed Trump’s election victory.

And it also included somewhere between $4.5 million and $22.5 million that Cohn, the investment bank’s former president, saved by cashing out just before Goldman’s recent stumble.

You can file this under “Swamp, Draining of.”

Oh, yeah, and Cohn also saved millions more, thanks to a massive tax break, courtesy of his new job at the Trump administration.
