Donald Trump’s old personal attorney and self-described “fixer” Michael Cohen is back at it again, spilling the tea on the corruption he witnessed within the Trump Organization as well as the Trump family itself as the investigations into the ex-president and his business continue to heat up.
Just recently, we reported on Cohen’s recollection of a time that Donald Trump apparently offered up his son Don Jr. to possibly go to prison instead of his daughter Ivanka when a few legal issues were heating up on them in the past and it looked as though jail time may have been a possible outcome. But according to Cohen’s deeper dive into the whole situation, it looks as though Donald’s precious oldest daughter may not be out of the woods yet.
Cohen recently made an appearance on MSNBC with host Ari Melber, where they discussed the New York Times report that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg may be facing the proverbial music as early as this summer. The big question surrounding Weisselberg for some time now is whether he will remain loyal to Donald Trump and suffer the ultimate consequences with a hefty prison sentence for himself and likely his children, or if he’ll turn state’s evidence against the former president in an effort to save his and his kids’ asses — which is what prosecutors are ultimately hoping for.
“So, Allen has a choice. The choice is, do you want to spend the golden years of your life behind bars while remaining loyal to Donald Trump, knowing that Trump would absolutely 100 percent not be loyal to you, or are you going to allow yourself and your sons to go to prison versus pass along the information and try to get yourself some sort of leniency?” Cohen told the MSNBC host regarding the Weisselberg predicament.

“On top of that, they have, again, documentary evidence – you know,” Trump’s former fixer continued, “the problem with everybody in the Trump Organization is that they all lie.”
He went on to note that telling lies is something they do frequently, an area which Cohen is an expert on, as he did it and witnessed it himself, citing “the entire set up for the hush money for Stormy Daniels,” which Cohen claims Weisselberg helped him orchestrate.
“And they will continue, as I did, including with Congress. We all lied in order to protect Donald. The problem, though, is that there are documents that show the opposite, that I wasn’t the only one that lied in the creation of that document. It was Ivanka and Jared and the lawyers,” Cohen explained in a bombshell allegation against Trump’s eldest and favorite daughter and her husband. “All of them were involved in the setting up of that – of that information to Congress. So, yes, I’m the one that suffered the consequences, and my belief is that Allen is going to suffer the same consequences.”
Both the Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance and New York District Attorney Letitia James have criminal investigations going against the ex-president and his business.
I just wonder which child Trump will offer up in place of Ivanka next.
