So the fire alarms weren't going off, or this guy was ignoring them, or high, and Cohen heard about the fire and called his "friend" that he knew lived there?

Cohen's drug using, gay, celebrity friend. Yeah, that's judgmental of me and judgment isn't a quality anyone should forsake. Cohen's got a lot not right going on.

There allegedly were no alarms or evacuations and the front desk wasn't answering calls. Something about the age of the building made it so a sprinkler system was not required by law for upper floors. It also smelled like sulfur.

Oh. And some firefighters and secret service went into Trumps residence on another floor to "see if the fire had reached the unit."

"The police said it appeared Mr. Shields had taken too much of the painkiller OxyContin, but a spokeswoman at the medical examiner’s office said a cause of death had not been determined. It remained unclear if the drug was prescribed to Mr. Shields or not."

I guess I meant to ask, why would anyone want him dead?

I think you're making this all a bit complicated. Friend of Michael Cohen died is the basic gist.

The fire from a few months ago had nothing to do with him and the fire didn't even threaten anyone beyond the floor the fire was on.

Of course. Your job is to disagree with anyone that is on the right. That’s why share blue hired a left leaning cunt.
