Avenatti Says Michael Cohen ‘Will Eventually Flip’: GMA Interview Was ‘Weak Publicity Stunt’


Michael Avenatti predicts Michael Cohen will turn on longtime client President Donald Trump in order to save his own skin following a Good Morning America interview in which he pledged his loyalties to his family over his old boss.

“Mr. Cohen will eventually flip but not for ‘love of country,'” Avenatti tweeted Tuesday. “He will do it to only when he has to – in order to save himself.” Avenatti added that the TV appearance was a mere publicity stunt.

However, Avenatti previously suggested Cohen’s  allegiances still lie with the president, also airing his criticisms of the GMA interview earlier on CNN, calling it “a big nothingburger.”

Avenatti, who’s representing porn actress Stormy Daniels in a legal fight against Trump over a non-disclosure agreement regarding her relationship with the president, has called for Cohen to come clean as prosecutors continue to investigate. The interview with ABC is suggestive that Cohen may be willing to cooperate.
