Michael Cohen worked for Donald Trump for nearly two decades. So he has special insight on how the former president’s mind works. And considering that Trump threw Cohen to the wolves, the lawyer is more than happy to dispense advise to his opponents.
Trump’s latest lawsuit involves his own niece, Mary. During a Sunday morning appearance on MSNBC, Cohen gave Mary Trump some tips on how to fight the case.
The lawyer began, “If I was Mary Trump and her lawyer, I would turn and say don’t fight this. Just answer the complaint and look for depositions. Let’s look for discovery because one thing for certain — and I have read dozens of Donald Trump depositions — they are the dumbest written paper that you’ve ever seen, nothing makes sense, everything is circular.”
Cohen continued, “He will — he does not want to do depositions. Right now I’m in a lawsuit against the Trump Organization. I have asked for depositions of Donald and they are adamant that they do not want him to sit for depositions because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”
