Michael Cohen, former President Donald Trump’s ex-lawyer, warned Trump’s new attorney Joe Tacopina that “he may find himself like the rest of” the legal professionals who used to represent Trump.
Cohen testified on Wednesday for a second time before a Manhattan grand jury investigating hush money payoffs to porn star Stormy Daniels on Trump’s behalf.
Cohen, who weighed in on Tacopina’s heated interview with MSNBC’s Ari Melber on Tuesday, told Joy Reid that Tacopina’s “ludicrous nonsense” didn’t benefit him or Trump.
“And if he doesn’t watch himself, he may find himself like the rest of us,” said Cohen, who served prison time for tax evasion and campaign finance violations related to the porn star payoff.
“Myself, [John] Eastman, [Christina] Bobb and Rudy Giuliani — and a whole slew of other attorneys that have found themselves in trouble, thanks to dear old Donald.”
Cohen ripped Trump’s new attorney as “an absolute disgrace to the profession of law.”
“I do know [Trump] certainly a whole lot better than Joe Tacopina,” Cohen said. “What I will tell you, emphatically, is what Joe is doing right now is he’s playing to a party of one and that’s Donald Trump. He will say the most ludicrous nonsense that you can say because that’s what Donald wants to hear.”
