Since Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, found himself at the center of an FBI search and seizure, Donnie’s other former personal attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen has had a whole lot to say about the matter — naturally, of course, if anyone knows how this sort of thing goes, it would definitely be Cohen. He’s been there, done that, got the t-shirt.
Cohen has already given Rudy a few direct messages through public interviews and even predicted that Giuliani will soon be turning on his boss. But in his most recent interview, the ex-president’s old “fixer” took a deep dive into the domino effect we could potentially see from the material confiscated from Rudy during the search warrant, that could take a hard hit at several other Trump associates and embroil them in corruption investigations of their own.
Cohen sat down for an appearance on MSNBC with host Ali Velshi and theorized that we’ve only just seen the tip of the iceberg so far when it comes to the scope of what was found in the Giuliani raid.
“You are a lawyer, Rudy Giuliani is a lawyer,” the MSNBC host began. “You kept a lot of records that may be in some cases helped you. It certainly helped the prosecutors who went after you. I assume that there was a lot of stuff for them to find in Rudy Giuliani’s office and phones.”

“Well, here is my thoughts on that,” Cohen, Trump’s former “fixer” replied. “They’ve used the Maria Yovanovitch issue in order to obtain the warrant. Now they have a treasure trove of information on Rudy’s cellphones and computer, and they’re going to be able to dig through all of that information.”
“Rest assured, this is not about Maria Yovanovitch,” Cohen went on. “This is not just about Ukraine — this could be about a multitude of other issues, you know, that shady Rudy has been involved with. As I always say, this is just the icing on the cake when it comes to the Southern District of New York review of what is going to be probably inside of Rudy’s cellphones. He’ll probably have information and contact with Bill Barr, with Jared Kushner, with Don [Trump] Jr.”
“There could be issues regarding the illegal pardons that were given out. Who knows what is in there? You know who knows? The Southern District of New York and they don’t play fair,” he added with a slight smile.”The funny — the irony here is that Rudy was the one who created that playbook for the Southern District to really take this gangster tactic, you know, against individuals that they’re prosecuting. They’re really not prosecuting, they’re convicting.”
There’s no way of knowing yet what was found in the raid against Giuliani, or who will go down with him as a result of it. However, we know that the corruption runs far deeper than Rudy alone and, as we mentioned above, if anyone’s got legitimate experience with a thing like this, it’s Michael Cohen.
