Trump’s former personal attorney and self-described “fixer,” Michael Cohen, sat down with MSNBC host Ali Velshi to further discuss the bombshell FBI search warrant raid on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach compound.
Cohen, who’s spoken out on the matter a few times since the news broke in recent weeks, theorized that his former client is now spending every hour of every day of his life, completely and fully obsessed with finding the so-called mole inside his Mar-a-Lago inner circle, in an effort to hunt down the person who informed on him to the FBI and led to the bombshell search warrant. The former attorney says when it comes to the ex-president, he’s so thoroughly obsessed with this betrayal, that he likely even suspects his own wife.
“How is he feeling right now because someone in his circle, or somebody around him that may not be a trusted advisor or something, but somebody around him who knows stuff about him is now an informant for the FBI,” Velshi asked. “That much we know, the name’s been redacted so we don’t know who that is. What happens to Donald Trump when he feels that someone’s betraying him?”
“Yes, this is a big problem for him because under normal circumstances [garbled] quite a few people that are around him. So he is able to shift to the next person,” Cohen answered, based on his personal experience with the mentally unstable former president. “Here, he is not sure who he can shift to.”

“He’s not sure if it’s Melania, he’s not sure if it’s one of the kids,” Cohen, who recently admitted that he wouldn’t be surprised if one of Trump’s own children informed on him to the FBI, explained. “Now you may remember, for over a year and a half, I’ve been saying that the whole issue with [Jared] Kushner to me just seems falsely odd in the fact that he who was secretary of everything in the White House, secretary of everything and that he seems to be escaping any sort of attention and, you know, any legal issues and so I’ve been saying for a long time, that just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.”
“But, then again, it’s just my opinion,” the former Trump fixer did go on to admit. “I personally have always thought that Kushner was the guy that would end up turning on his father-in-law first.”
