During the show MSNBCTrump, a former longtime fixer and personal attorney, told presenter Joy Reid that he predicts Trump, if he loses, will claim November 3rd. The election was rigged, and it will use Attorney General William Barr to cancel ballots that he said are “fake” in order to stay in office.
“He doesn’t care about the US constitution,” he said. “He believes he is above everything.”
Reid noted that Trump cannot do these things alone and that Cohen and many others have been with Trump for a long time. She asked, “Why are they doing this?”
“It simply came to our notice then. You know, we’re a bunch of sycophants, “Cohen said without hesitation. “He is very much like a cult leader. When you are in his good grace, you believe that you have such a tremendous power that you do, and he is somehow able to persuade you to use that power for evil. ”
He outlined the tasks he described in his book, Unfaithful: The True Story of Former Personal Lawyer for President Donald J. Trump, which includes feeding Trump’s ego, correcting interviews, and non-disclosure agreements to silence the women he was dealing with.
“A man doesn’t know what it means to take responsibility for his dirty work,” he said. “It’s required of everyone else like me.”
He said officials such as Barras and members of Congress, who continued to stay with Trump, were “throwing their careers.”
Cohen turned against D. Trump in 2018, when the attorney collaborated with investigators and testified before Congress. He pleaded guilty to criminal charges, including lying to Congress and violating campaign finance laws, and involved the president in those crimes.
He is serving the remaining three years in prison after being released at home for concerns about coronavirus.
