Michael Cohen For Congress? “I’m In,” Says Former Fixer

He’s not on any ballots and there’s no official public announcement. However, Michael Cohen, the man once known as Donald Trump’s ‘fixer,’ is at least engaging in very public musing about the possibility of a run for Congress in the next few years, to help shut down some of the Trump supporters who signed an amicus brief to ask the Supreme Court to overturn the election.

Cohen, who turned on Trump and spilled his guts first to Congress and then in a tell-all book, has a few projects in the works. He says he’s working on a second book, and that his first is being adapted for film. He’s also releasing two podcast episodes per week. Cohen has built up a fan base, and often engages with them on Twitter. In conversations over the weekend, he discussed the possibility of running for a House seat.

It started with Miles Taylor — the former Homeland Security official who wrote an anonymous op-ed about the resistance within the Trump administration. Taylor suggested that anyone “feeling patriotic” should run against one of the House Republicans who signed on to an amicus brief pleading with the Supreme Court to overturn the election results. Cohen quoted Taylor’s tweet, saying, “Ok…I’m in!”

This led to questions from many of Cohen’s fans about details. His responses include an assurance that he would run as a Democrat if he does go through with a campaign and a vague hint that he would only run if he felt he had a good chance of winning.

He also assured his fans he’s not worried about attacks from conservative media.

Cohen has built up a following through his revelations about Trump, but it remains to be seen whether that would transfer to voters in a political campaign.
