Democrats are dancing with glee.
They think they finally found the silver bullet that will take down Donald Trump.
That’s because one lawyer stepped forward and said the two words that could spell big trouble for Donald Trump.
Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is on a media tour after pleading guilty multiple crimes.
Cohen is embracing his new found status as a rat and telling anti-Trump journalists everything they want to hear.
That includes saying Trump knew the hush money payments to women claiming affairs with Trump were wrong.
ABC News reports:
Cohen’s comments are his first since being sentenced earlier this week to three years in federal prison for financial crimes, lying to Congress and two campaign finance violations in connection with the deals with the women, Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels, who claim past affairs with Trump.
“I knew what I was doing was wrong,” Cohen told ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos. “I stood up before the world [Wednesday] and I accepted the responsibility for my actions.”
When asked if the president also knew it was wrong to make the payments, Cohen replied, “Of course,” adding that the purpose was to “help [Trump] and his campaign.”
Cohen pled guilty to making these payments in violation of FEC laws and claimed they were done so at Trump’s direction.
But Trump’s defense is that he had no idea the payments were illegal and trusted Cohen to carry them out in a lawful manner.
Cohen offered no evidence to back up his assertions.
However, the fake news media still ran wild stories about his claims suggesting Donald Trump was one step from prison.
