Trump Says Michael Cohen Should Rat Out His Father-in-Law, Doesn’t Know His Name
During an interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, President Donald Trump threw Michael Cohen‘s father-in-law under the bus even though he didn’t even know his name.
It happened after Pirro asked Trump if he was worried that the Democrats are bringing Cohen — which she called “an already-proven liar” — in front of Congress.
Trump said he was not.
Then, he worked hard to distance himself from Cohen.
“No, look, I was a client of his,” Trump replied. “You’re supposed to have lawyer/client privilege, but it doesn’t matter because if I’m a very honest person, frankly. But he’s on trouble on some loans and fraud and taxi cabs and stuff that I know nothing about. And in order to get his sentence reduced, he says, I have an idea, I’ll give you some information on the president.”
Then, he dropped his bombshell about Cohen’s father-in-law: “[Cohen] should give information maybe on his father-in-law, because that’s the one that people want to look at. Because where does that money — that’s the money in the family. And I guess he didn’t want to talk about his father-in-law – he’s trying to get his sentence reduced. So it’s pretty sad. It’s weak and it’s very sad to watch a thing like that.”
Pirro then asked Cohen’s father-in-law’s name.
“I don’t know, but you’ll find out, and you’ll look into it because nobody knows what’s going on over there,” Trump replied.
