Whenever someone stops working for Donald Trump, it’s more than likely that they’re going to turn on him. Several of Trump’s former employees have leaked secret information about the president and his insane administration voluntarily, and haven’t been shy about trashing the undeserving POTUS. But when Special Counsel Robert Mueller is involved and Trump has employees that are under the microscope in the investigations, Trump’s minions are being forced to choose between protecting themselves or Trump — and many are going to completely abandon the president.
Trump’s long-time personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, might have done anything for his client — until now. Cohen recently came under scrutiny for the shadiness surrounding the $130K he gave to Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her affair with Trump — which led to an FBI raid of the lawyer’s office. Now Cohen is terrified, as this also had implications in Trump’s Russia scandal. Will Cohen become the next in line, following former Trump staffers Michael Flynn and Rick Gates, to cut a deal with Mueller? Signs point to yes.
Recently, CNN’s Don Lemon interviewed Cohen and asked if the lawyer was worried. Cohen pretty much signaled a breakdown and suggested that he just wanted the whole thing to be over with. Cohen, implying that he might give up Trump to make his life easier, said:
“I would be lying to you if I told you that I am not. Do I need this in my life? No. Do I want to be involved in this? No.”
Much like Trump himself, no one connected to the president is good under stress. Now that his office has been raided by the FBI, Cohen’s loyalty to Trump will really be put to the test — and already, it’s wearing thin. Mueller knows that even with Cohen being unable to disclose everything due to his attorney-client privilege with Trump, he can still get a lot out of Cohen if he puts enough pressure on him. Just judging from Cohen’s recent comments, Mueller probably won’t have to try very hard.
