Al Sharpton, After Speaking With Michael Cohen: He Won’t Be a ‘Sacrificial Lamb’ for Trump

Reverend Al Sharpton says the big news today about Michael Cohen proves that the attorney won’t sacrifice himself on the alter to his old boss, President Trump.

On Friday morning, Sharpton ginned up a lot of intrigue after telling his Twitter followers that he chatted with Cohen over breakfast.

Cohen was already causing chatter for all of his recent hints about cooperating with Robert Mueller, but now that Rudy Giuliani confirmed a tape exists of Trump speaking to his ex-attorney about paying off Karen McDougal, Craig Melvin had Sharpton on to elaborate on what Cohen told him.

Apparently, Cohen has done quite a bit of soul-searching:

“I got the sense that his loyalty is to his family and country. That’s the direct quote, if he said it one time, he said it twenty times. Which gives me the real feeling that if there is, in fact, things of this president did, he ought to be concerned. I think Michael Cohen has made it very clear to me this morning that he’s not going to be some sacrificial lamb for something that was done wrongly. Did he say he was cooperating? No. Did he say how it was going to manifest? No. But he clearly said that he’s disappointed in the president with how he turned out…[and] he was going to do what’s right for the country as a patriot.”
