Shortly after Donald Trump left office, the states of New York and Georgia began investigations into him. While the probes seemed to be moving fast at one point, they have somewhat slowed.
Part of the process is finding witnesses wiling to turn on the former president. During a weekend spot on Meet the Press, Michael Cohen explained the best way to get to Trump.
He began, “Allen Weisselberg is not the key. They are going after Donald, Junior, Eric Ivanka — a whole slew of individuals, family as well.”
The former Trump lawyer continued, “They didn’t really do to Allen Weisselberg what they did to me. You know, the threat to me was that they were going to file an 85-page indictment that was going to include my wife. They were going to say she was a co-conspirator to the hush money payment which was absolutely nonsensical.”

“Look, I’ve been married for 27 years to the same woman, there was no chance in the world that I was going to put her at risk with these animals. The way they came down on me was nothing like the way came after Weisselberg. They should be squeezing, right now, Barry Weisselberg who worked for the Trump Organization and they should be squeezing Jack Weisselberg, who is only one of two organizations who loaned money to the Trump Organization that we still know, you know, when we talk about whether Donald Trump inflated or deflated his assets.”
