Amid a looming potential indictment for Donald Trump over a 2016 hush-money payment that sent his former attorney Michael Cohen to prison, Trump’s ex-fixer urged his current lawyers to get as far from their client as possible.
During an interview with MSNBC host Chris Hayes and Cohen, the names of several of Trump’s lawyers were mentioned, including Joe Tacopina, Alina Habba and Evan Corcoran. Tacopina has been speaking to the press about a potential indictment, which reportedly could come next week, while Habba and Corcoran are involved in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents investigation. (A federal judge on Friday ordered Corcoran to provide more testimony in the Justice Department’s probe.)
“There are so many more people that are around [Trump] in terms of lawyers, that the big joke that’s out there now is that ‘MAGA’ really stands for ‘make attorneys get attorneys,’ and sadly that’s really the truth,” Cohen said.
