In the wake of the New York Attorney General’s announcement that their investigation into the Trump Organization has officially turned criminal, the ex-president’s former personal attorney and self-described “fixer,” Michael Cohen, has naturally had a whole lot to say about the situation.
Just yesterday, we reported that Cohen is feeling pretty confident that we’ll see an indictment for former President Trump before the summer’s end, and he hilariously topped it off with an image he shared to social media of Trump behind bars. But now it seems that Trump’s impending incarceration isn’t the only thing that his former personal attorney is pretty damn confident about.
According to Cohen, he’s almost positive that Donald Trump will soon flip on his entire family as the heat gets hotter and hotter with these investigations against him.
Speaking with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Cohen said, “I think Donald Trump is going to flip on all of them. What do you think about that? Including his children.”

The former personal attorney who was once embroiled in the Stormy Daniels scandal went on to explain, “I really believe that Donald Trump cares for only himself, and he realizes that his goose is cooked,’ so when he will be asked about the Trump Organization’s finances he will blame everyone else.”
“It’s never Donal,” Cohen, who once serves as the Vice President of the Trump Organization said. “See, this is the problem. It’s never, ever Donald Trump. It’s always somebody else.”
“It wasn’t Donald Trump who had the affair,” he continued. “It wasn’t Donald Trump who directed me to make the payments to Stormy Daniels. It wasn’t Donald Trump who got the benefit of the relationship and the actions. It was Michael Cohen. And I’m the bad guy into it. Why? Because I didn’t take the fall.”
Cohen went on to say that when “all of a sudden they turn around and start asking him about his tax returns or about the devaluation of the assets or the way that he took deductions,’ he will say, ‘I don’t do my taxes. It’s my accountant.’”
“He’s going to turn on his accountant and point the finger,” Cohen said, visibly surprising the MSNBC host. “He’s going to say ‘Don Jr. handled that, Ivanka handled that. Melania. Don’t take me. Take Melania!'”
“He’s going to tell them to take everyone except for himself.”
The former president in combination with his organization is currently facing criminal investigations from both the state and city levels of New York.
