In this article, you will get all information regarding Michael Cohen sounds the alarm for Trump’s attorney Evan Corcoran – World Time Todays
Michael Cohen warned the attorney representing his ex-client, former President Donald Trump, in the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation into Trump’s handling of classified documents to “run, run as fast as you can.”
A federal judge ruled Friday that prosecutors leading the investigation into classified material found at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., may ask Trump’s personal attorney, M. Evan Corcoran, additional questions, he reported The New York Times.
Corcoran appeared for questioning before a grand federal jury in the spring, but declined to answer some of the prosecutors’ questions and repeatedly invoked attorney-client privilege.
As the Just however, writes that the judge leading the Mar-a-Lago investigation ruled that the DOJ has reached the threshold for a principle known as the felony fraud exception, which allows prosecutors to bypass attorney-client privilege if they believe the attorney and a the client attempts to cover up or engage in criminal activity by refusing to answer questions.
Speaking to MSNBC host Chris Hayes on Friday, Cohen, Trump’s longtime attorney and confidante, spoke about his role in the Manhattan Attorney’s Office investigation into Trump’s actions in paying hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016. Cohen had previously pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations for paying Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her alleged involvement with the former president. Cohen has said under oath that he was later compensated by Trump for the transaction.
Towards the end of the call, Hayes asked Cohen what advice he would give to attorneys, including Corcoran, who are “signing” or considering “signing” as Trump’s representative.
“I would say I hope you watched me testifying before the House Oversight Committee as I turned and said to both Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows ‘I know what you’re doing and I know them pieces you play. I’m trying to run because I wrote the playbook,” Cohen said. “And it didn’t work out well for me, and it won’t work out well for you.”
“The smartest thing a lawyer could do when Donald Trump is asking you to represent him in this nightmare he’s going to live is run,” he continued. “Run as fast as you can and don’t run to Florida and certainly not to Palm Beach. Run somewhere east or west, but definitely don’t get involved with Donald. I would say so.”
news week emailed Trump’s press team for comment.
Investigations into whether Trump mishandled the top-secret materials discovered at Mar-a-Lago intensified this week when Special Counsel Jack Smith issued subpoenas on over two dozen people associated with the former president’s resort, including restaurant employees and other employees.
Andrew Lieb, a lawyer and right-wing politician, previously said news week that the DOJ’s move “tells us that Special Counsel Jack Smith wants to cross-check his evidence, where the documents were in Trump’s Club, who knew where they were, particularly Trump, and who had access, particularly those who were not authorized to do so .”
Cohen also told CNN Thursday that indictment against Trump is “imminent” as Manhattan prosecutors are expected to file criminal charges in the coming days over their investigation into the hush money paid to Daniels.
Trump has maintained his innocence in both investigations.
