CNN’s Gloria Borger: Sources Saying Michael Cohen Has ‘Hit the Reset Button,’ Will ‘Tell the Truth’
Trump fixer Michael Cohen is not necessarily the president’s friend anymore, according to CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger.
“I think that Michael Cohen has decided to fight back against Rudy Giuliani and his client, Donald Trump,” Borger told Kate Bolduan Monday. “And my sources are telling me that he said that the truth is not you or your client’s friend.”
“These sources say that what Cohen has decided to do is effectively hit the reset button here and that he is continuing his commitment to tell the truth,” she continued. “Now, a source familiar with Cohen’s thinking tells me that he feels that he’s getting a strong signal from the president and from Rudy Giuliani that if his version of the truth doesn’t coincide with their version of the truth, then they will continue their attacks on him.”
“I should also say that my sources will not reveal what it is exactly that Cohen knows, for example, and refer us to his attorney, who is not speaking publicly at all,” she added.
Bolduan asked if there’s any signal that Cohen is currently cooperating with prosecutors.
“We don’t know why Cohen is doing what he’s doing right now other than the fact that I can tell you he is frustrated, he is infuriated by Rudy Giuliani and feels kind of shunted aside by the person that he was the ultimate loyalist for, who’s, of course, the President of the United States,” Borger said.
“I think this is a shot across the bow that says, ‘wait a minute here, you’re daring me to tell the truth, well, that’s great, I’m gonna continue to do that.,'” she concluded.
