Michael Cohen, Trump’s estranged former attorney, made an appearance on MSNBC on Sunday and voiced a conspiracy theory about the latter.
Michael Steele, a former chairman of the Republican National Committee who has since become an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump, interviewed Cohen while filling in as host of “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart.” Part of the segment was dedicated to a discussion of the recent FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, which was ostensibly conducted to retrieve classified documents.
Given what we know about the FBI search of Mar-a-Lago and the fact that you spent many years inside Donald Trump’s world, Steele asked, “Based on everything you know about him, why do you think he wanted to keep those top secret documents at Mar-a-Lago?”
If the full weight of the law was brought down on Trump, Cohen claimed, he would “betray the country and aid its chief geopolitical rivals.”
The raid on Trump’s home by the FBI was the “greatest interference in our political system,” according to Levy.
“It will serve as his “get out of jail free” card. This is just another method of trying to blackmail the United States “Cohen made the remark.
Cohen acted out what he imagined Trump’s thought process to be like “in order to retaliate by saying something like, “If you put me in jail… I will have my loyal supporters who you do not know who has copies of information that may have been” —again, this is just my speculation — “that I would take those documents, I will release them to Iran, to China, to North Korea, to Russia, and you know what? If you try to destroy me, I’ll destroy your entire country!”
Former FBI agent Peter Strzok calls claims that the FBI is biased “nonsense.”
If Cohen is to be believed, such an approach is intrinsic to Trump’s character.
Remember, and I’ve said this a thousand times with you, Mike, Donald Trump doesn’t care about this country, he doesn’t care about anyone or anything other than himself,” Cohen said.
In agreement with Cohen’s assessment, Steele commented, “You’re the one who brings the receipts, bro. I value your help.”
Following the raid at Trump’s Florida estate, Cohen posted a tweet with what appeared to be a photo of a crying Trump and the caption “The end is near,” implying that Trump would soon be arrested and sentenced to prison.
“A good piece of advice for Trump’s lawyers to give him is this: “when the fbi raids, all you can do is prepare for jail.” It’s the law that applies to everyone. #KarmaBoomerang, “As a form of social media communication, he tweeted.
