Michael Cohen Has Reportedly Been Questioning Trump’s Fitness to Be President
Michael Cohen has been hinting for a while now that he’s no longer in President Donald Trump‘s corner. His interview with George Stephanopoulos, coupled with subsequent statements both he and his lawyer Lanny Davis have made, emphasized that he is loyal first to his family and his country.
As I said to @ABC @GStephanopoulos, “I respect our nation’s intelligence agencies who determined that Russia, had in fact, interfered or meddled in our democratic process. I repudiate Russia’s effort…and call on all Americans to do the same.”

“Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.” -Walter Cronkite As we contend with the crazed 24/7 news cycle, it has never been more important than it is now for everyone to distinguish between innuendo and fact.

But apparently this goes beyond legal matters, for as Axios’ Jonathan Swan reports, Cohen has started to be “more openly questioning Trump’s fitness to be president.”
And he didn’t directly deny it:
When I texted Cohen today he declined several opportunities to deny he made these comments to friends. He told me he “cannot comment about someone’s innuendo.” When I replied to Cohen that the sourcing was solid and would he like to contest the way I was characterizing his thinking, he, revealingly, would not do so.
Just yesterday news broke of a tape Cohen recorded of him and Trump talking about a payment to Karen McDougal––the former Playboy model who alleged Trump had an affair with her––before the election.
