(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Former Trump lawyer and jailbird Michael Cohen told an MSNBC anchor that the Department of Justice should look into whether former President Donald Trump duplicated and stored any top-secret documents.
In his remarks, Cohen addressed a New York Times article that said Trump had been allegedly irate over the National Archives and Records Administration’s (NARA) failure to give him records pertaining to the FBI’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
According to the report, former President Trump allegedly informed his advisors he would hand NARA the documents he kept at Mar- a-Lago if they gave him something he wanted from them.
On MSNBC, Cohen stated that the former President looked to be attempting to exchange a ‘this for that’ by utilizing a strategy from his book “The Art of the Deal.” Cohen claimed the whole situation was absurd and Trump was not entitled to the documents he sought.
What is absurd is that the low-rent MSNBC still asks the grifter for his useless opinions.
Cohen claimed, incorrectly, that the documents were not Trump’s. And he cluelessly guessed that he had other documents because a file folder would specify how many papers were included, and some could be missing. Additionally, Cohen believes Trump should be investigated to see if any documents were photocopied.
Reports show in September that Cohen claimed Trump may have retained copies of secret documents at his children’s residences, his Bedminster golf estate in New Jersey, and Trump Tower in New York City.
In August, the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago and recovered several allegedly classified papers, including those marked “top secret.” The DOJ is investigating whether Trump’s storage of the documents at his Florida home violated federal crimes, including the Espionage Act.
Another ridiculous excuse for DOJ harassment.
According to reports, Michael Cohen admitted to several offenses in 2018, including tax evasion, misappropriation of campaign funds, and bank fraud. He received a three-year jail sentence in December 2018. He was released after one year because of COVID-19 prison regulations.
He was permanently banned from practicing law by the New York Supreme Court in February 2019.
But you can believe everything Cohen says.
