Michael Cohen Worried Trump Will Spill Secrets If He Goes To Jail

Back when Donald Trump was in the White House, his lawyer and former 'fixer' Michael Cohen served time in prison for his work with the former President. One might think that since he served prison time for the old boss, Cohen would want to see Trump face jailtime after being convicted on 34 charges in New York this week. 

But during a weekend appearance on MSNBC, Cohen said that wasn't the case and he explained why Trump in prison could be problematic. 

The former Trump lawyer told Michael Steele: 

"This clown had four years of being debriefed on national security issues. On top of that, if he becomes the Republican nominee, he gets debriefed again! Think about this. America, think about this.

You now have a Republican leading candidate who’s a felon, who’s going to be debriefed on national security issues knowing how loose-lipped he is. How he’s willing to give away America’s secrets to Vladimir Putin, or to anybody for money or just simply for bragging rights. He did it with the Australian billionaire at Mar-a-Lago. He sat there in Helsinki with Vladimir Putin talking about national security issues but nobody was around except for Vladimir Putin’s translator."

"These are not normal things. You do not allow somebody like Donald Trump to be declassified, especially now as a felon. So, my concern is, in a prison situation, he is willing to give away these secrets, as I always say, for a bag of tuna or a book of stamps. He will do it because does not care."
