Michael Cohen is ‘pissed off’ he’s going to jail — while Trump is still president: CNN’s Toobin
Former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen is due to report to prison on Monday — and CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin said that he’s understandably furious that he’s being sent to jail while the man who allegedly ordered him to commit crimes still gets to be president.
In dissecting the crimes that Cohen pleaded guilty to, Toobin pointed out that many of them were done for Trump’s benefit — and yet Cohen is the only one who has paid a legal price so far.
“The remarkable thing about Michael Cohen is, if you look at his crimes — and they are real crimes — all of them, with one exception, were for the benefit of Donald Trump,” he said. “He didn’t get anything out of the illegal campaign contributions, out of his false testimony to Congress, his bank fraud to get money to pay off Stormy Daniels. His tax fraud is a separate issue.”
Taken all together, Toobin said, Cohen would be right to feel that he’s going to jail for another man’s misdeeds.
“The idea that Michael Cohen is going to prison for three years when Donald Trump is president of the United States, no one else has been prosecuted for that stuff, you can see why he’s a pissed-off dude,” he said.
