Michael Cohen, former President Donald Trump’s attorney, weighed in on 45’s potential legal troubles, suggesting Trump has the capacity to sell classified information for “a package of stamps” on Saturday. (You can see Cohen’s comments about Trump below).
Cohen, who himself went to jail after pleading guilty to tax evasion and campaign finance violations, told MSNBC’s Alex Witt that he thinks Trump will face charges, but wasn’t so sure the former president could face a prison sentence. to get.
“Based on the fact that he’s a former president of the United States, it could be that maybe it’s not a prison environment that he could end up being sentenced to, but rather a very strict home confinement scenario,” said Cohen, who was a part of his three-year prison sentence while under house arrest.
Cohen’s comments come days after he met with New York prosecutors earlier this week when they were investigating the Trump Organization and a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels over an alleged affair she had with the former president, they said. sources to UKTN.
The former president is also under investigation for his handling of classified documents.
Cohen, noting that he is a disbarred lawyer, later chided Trump for being a “very stupid person” who doesn’t have a strong memory, claiming it would be “inaccurate” to think he wouldn’t sell classified information for something cheap .
“Let’s not forget that for four years — despite the fact that he’s a really, really stupid person and doesn’t have a great memory or a great memory — he still received secret briefings for four years, secret briefings for national security,” Cohen said. .
And if you think Donald wouldn’t sell that information, maybe he already has, but if you think he wouldn’t sell it for a can of tuna or a pack of stamps, you’re wrong. So I think in the interest of national security they would put him in a very strict scenario of home confinement.
