Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is currently on the FBI’s radar because of a $130,000 hush payment he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels to cover up his boss’s affair with her. Five days later, the Trump organization billed the campaign almost $130,000 — something that looks just a bit suspicious to anyone not wearing a MAGA hat.
Cohen is facing charges of bank fraud, campaign finance violations, wire fraud, and more — and his problems are Trump’s problems. So naturally, Cohen’s actions on Wednesday should have The Donald very worried.
Cohen was seen dining with MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch, who only hours prior had urged Cohen to flip on his current boss.

“Michael at this point, for whatever his emotional, legal, personal reasons is devoutly, devoutly, devoutly loyal to this president — where I can’t understand it, candidly,” Deutsch said on “Morning Joe” Wednesday. “I will see it as this unfolds, (the FBI raid) two days ago it was not about Russia, it was not. It was about banking and finance. When you scratch that scab, there’s a lot of pus coming out of it.”
Does this necessarily mean that Trump should be shaking in his boots? Well, The Donald already has many reasons to do that — but while this is not proof that Cohen has flipped on Trump, it’s a pretty good indicator that he’s at least considering it. And at this point, Trump is likely p*ssing his pants like they’re a Moscow hotel bed.
