Former Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen claims that former President Donald Trump is guilty of crimes he is being investigated for by the New York Attorney General, according to Breitbart News.
Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, made his comments on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where he claimed that the investigations into both Donald Trump and the Trump organization have already resulted in enough for New York Attorney General Letitia James to indict the former president.
The former attorney for Trump was asked if he has an opinion as to the stage that the investigation is in, but he skirted answering the question, citing that it could tip investigator’s hands:
“I really try not to talk about it because it’s their investigation, nor do I want to tip off Trump or the Trump Organization’s people about what is actually happening,” Cohen said.
“So I would rather just not answer that specific question, other than to say that you can bet your bottom dollar that Allen Weisselberg is not — and I truly mean this, Allen Weisselberg is not the key to this.”
He did, however, say who the targets of the investigation are: “They are going after Donald. They’re going after Don Jr, Eric, Ivanka, a whole slew of individuals, family as well.”
He continued, “You know when you talked about whether or not Donald Trump inflated or deflated his assets, every single word that I had said about that is 100% accurate.
“I’m not asking anybody to believe me. No different than when I testified before the House oversight committee. Every statement that I make, I’ve backed up with documentary evidence. I truly believe that they can indict Donald Trump tomorrow if they really wanted, and be successful.”
When asked by Anchor Chuck Todd if he was “confident you did help Donald Trump commit crimes?”
Cohen said, “I can assure you that Donald Trump is guilty of his own crimes. Was I involved in much of the inflation and deflation of his assets? The answer to that is yes.”
