Over the course of the last several months the mainstream media has been trying to figure out whether or not Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, would turn against the President and cooperate with investigators. And while over the last month Cohen appears to be on a steady course towards cooperation, rather than possibly deciding to rely on a Presidential Pardon down the road, no hard evidence of cooperation has yet to be reported on.
On July 9 Michael Cohen’s new attorney, Lanny Davis, suggested that the President and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, do not often tell the truth. Then two days later Davis suggested that Trump could very well be impeached. Last night, however, Cohen himself turned to Twitter in what appears to be a swipe at the President’s attacks on the media and facts, as you can see in the tweet below:
“Freedom of the press is not just important to democracy, it is democracy.” -Walter Cronkite As we contend with the crazed 24/7 news cycle, it has never been more important than it is now for everyone to distinguish between innuendo and fact.

It’s interesting to note that the tweet came only hours after Trump himself turned to Twitter to take a swipe at the media, writing “The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media.“
While Cohen’s tweet certainly doesn’t prove that he has flipped on his former client, one would imagine that if he was relying on a Presidential pardon, this behavior certainly would not be conducive to such an action.
