Donald Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, has compared his treatment from Trump’s legal team to the alleged intimidation made against Cassidy Hutchinson before her January 6th testimony.
It was revealed that Hutchinson had been pressured by her own boss, White House Mark Meadows, to testify favorably for Trump when speaking to the January 6th House Select Committee. Instead, Hutchinson not only told the truth about her experience over several taped interviews as well as her now-infamous testimony at her live hearing, she told the Committee about the pressure from her former employers to essential lie under oath.
Cohen knows more than a little something about carrying out Trump’s dubious orders under penalty of punishment, whether they were explicitly laid out or thinly veiled as threats, as in the messages from Meadows to Hutchinson.

Cohen says he still has the threatening messages he’s gotten from still-loyal Trump allies from before his prison stint in December 2018 after he pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including tax evasion and excessive campaign contributions, and also testified before Congress about who Donald Trump truly is. Since then, he’s used his own podcast to mine his own experiences as a warning for those still trapped in Trump’s orbit.

Cohen chatted with our mutual pals Meidas Touch about the constant bombshells blowing up at the January 6th House Select Committee Hearings and was horrified when asked what he’d be doing if he was still somehow in TrumpWorld.
