The question everyone wants to know, is Michael Cohen going to flip on President Donald Trump? News outlets have gone crazy with the latest actions by Micheal Cohen. It appears that the one-time loyal attorney has dropped his title of “personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump” from his Twitter biography. His LinkedIn page, however, was not updated, and it links to his Twitter account still.
But what does all this mean? Trump has been very hush hush about Cohen unlike how he acted about Michael Flynn. Trump would continuously praise Flynn. It was even revealed by former FBI Director James Comey that Trump had told him that Flynn was a good guy. “So General Michael Flynn’s life can be totally destroyed while Shadey James Comey can Leak and Lie and make lots of money from a third-rate book (that should never have been written). Is that really the way life in America is supposed to work? I don’t think so!” Trump tweeted.
Flynn was fired on 13 February 2017, after White House officials said he had misled them about his Russian contacts during the transition period.
In early April Cohen’s home and office were raided by the FBI and prosecutors disclosed he had been under criminal investigation for months. The one-time attorney to the President admitted facilitating a hush payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quite about the decade-long affair she had with Trump. Trump had denied anything had occurred but his other lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in May that Trump had indeed reimbursed Cohen.
Cohen also used his connection with Trump to pitch himself to major companies and called himself the point man for access to the President. In the past, Cohen had said he would “take a bullet for Trump” but with the recent interview with Good Morning America, Cohen didn’t sound like a man who would put the President before himself and his family. It has been reported that Cohen has told friends that he would be “willing to give” information to Trump prosecutors.
“I don’t agree with those who demonize or vilify the FBI. I respect the FBI as an institution, as well as their agents,” Cohen said. “When they searched my hotel room and my home, it was obviously upsetting to me and my family. Nonetheless, the agents were respectful, courteous and professional. I thanked them for their service and as they left, we shook hands.”
