Former President Donald Trump has temporarily dismissed his against his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, without prejudice.
Dismissing his lawsuit without prejudice means that in the future, Trump will be free to pursue this case against Cohen when Trump has cleared up his legal plate.
Thanks to the liberal Department of Justice, Trump simply has too much going on right now to deal with the Cohen case.
Trump is facing four different indictments in multiple states and his legal team is stretched thin as is. Putting the Cohen case on the back burner will free up crucial resources and enable Trump to more effectively defend himself.
Further adding to Trump's workload is the 2024 presidential campaign itself which is also taking an immense amount of resources and energy.
Donald Trump's campaign issued a statement saying, "Given that President Trump is required to sit for deposition in a civil matter on Columbus Day, when he is scheduled to be in the Great State of New Hampshire, and while the President is fighting against the meritless claims that have been lodged against him in New York, Washington D.C., Florida, and Georgia, as well as continuing his winning campaign, where he is leading the Republicans by 60 points and Crooked Joe Biden by 11 points, to serve as our next President of the United States, President Trump has decided to temporarily pause his meritorious claims against Michael Cohen."
The indictments that Trump is facing are unprecedented and seemingly deliberately designed to make it as difficult as possible for Trump to defend himself in court.
Trump's fraud case in New York, brought by New York state Attorney General Letitia James, was scheduled on the same day that Trump was scheduled to be deposed by Cohen's legal team.
Despite this set back, Trump's campaign issued a statement promising that the fight against Cohen wasn't over and Trump would be back to fight another day.
That statement read, "Once President Trump has prevailed in dealing with the witch hunts against him, he will continue to pursue his claims against Michael Cohen, who rightfully deserves to, and will be held accountable for his unlawful words and actions just as the Southern District of New York held him accountable for numerous non-Trump related acts and crimes, making Cohen a very 'proud' felon."
The good news for Cohen is that it seems that Trump will be tied up dealing with these indictments for a significant amount of time.
Trump referred to one indictment brought against him by radical district attorney Alvin Bragg saying, “This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history."
In comparison to the corruption in our justice system, Cohen's alleged violation of attorney-client privileges seem unimportant.
Holding rogue actors like Bragg and Fulton County district attorney Fani Willis accountable is understandably higher priority to the Trump campaign.
