Michael Cohen Has Given Prosecutors What They Need To Convict Trump: Report

Wherever he looks, Donald Trump can see that various prosecutors are moving ever closer to indicting him.

Now that Trump is a former president, he no longer has the legal protections afforded a sitting president which prohibit the American head of state from being criminally indicted, tried, found guilty, and incarcerated.

His former attorney, Michael Cohen, has all sorts of evidence that he’s handed over to prosecutors in New York, and it’s more than enough to send the Donald away for a very long time, according to what he told CBS News recently:

“Cohen said he had been questioned by the state attorney general’s team and the district attorney’s office and claimed investigators are ‘well-prepared’ with their evidence to ‘move relatively quickly’ in their probes.

“‘I do believe that there is a mounting amount of evidence that they will be prosecuting upon,’ Cohen said. ‘Some of it of course is civil, and other parts of it are criminal.'”

Cohen, who was convicted on charges of fraud, campaign finance violations, and lying to Congress, was sentenced to three years in prison and released earlier this year when the COVID-19 pandemic began sweeping through U.S. prisons.

Does Cohen expect Trump might pardon him in an effort to keep him from cooperating further with investigators? Cohen said he’s “not interested” in any presidential pardon, and made clear that prosecutors are indeed focusing in on Trump’s finances:

“It has to do with his finances, it has to do with his tax returns, it has to do with his properties, it has to do with the personal financial statements that he had made and provided in order to obtain loans.”

Trump’s financial dealings have always been his Achilles’ heel, and considering all of the dirt Cohen likely has on the Donald, things are about to get very bad for the former president.
