I didn’t like Michael Cohen when he first rose to prominence as part of Trump’s cult. I was not alone in that. Legend has it that on Election Night 2016, when Steve Bannon was cavorting around with a champagne bottle, claiming, “We’ll rule for the next 50 years!” that Cohen made the decision that night to run for Mayor of New York City.
Everybody was very high on Trump’s success and actually it makes sense. If a complete imbecile like Donald Trump can become president of the United States then why shouldn’t Michael Cohen be the mayor of New York? He surely couldn’t become a bigger wash out at it, and life in general, than Rudy Giuliani.
But the present day Michael Cohen, the born again guy, the one who saw the light and has clued us all in about his time on the Dark Side serving Trump as his master. is a likeable fellow. And three years in prison can make a man humble, he’s living proof. Cohen also called the shot very early on, stating that Trump would not go quietly when he lost the election. Hear him riff hilariously on the lawyers on Trump’s current legal team.
I especially like his comments about Alina Habba.
“Alina is possibly the last lawyer on the planet that should be out there right now defending this grotesque possession of national security secrets at Mar-a-Lago.”
“She has no clue when it comes to the DOJ. She’s working in parking lots, not in the Justice Department.”
The only thing I would say to any of Trump’s current lawyers is look at what happened to Michael Cohen. Under the bus he went. They might think about that. At the very least, when Trump has no use for them anymore they will be relegated to the status of coffee boy, or girl as the case may be.
