Michael Cohen’s business partner, a New York “taxi king,” has reportedly plead guilty to charges that will allow him to stay out of jail raising the stakes on Cohen.
Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti went on MSNBC to discuss the development, and did not pull any punches.
“I’ve said it before, and maybe I haven’t been clear enough: Michael Cohen will be in a world of hurt in a very short period of time,” Avenatti said. “He will have very few options. And that’s why I’ve said repeatedly that ultimately he’s going to flip on the President of the United States.”
Avenenatti was asked whether this matter involving taxis was outside his purview as the attorney for a porn star who is suing for the right to tell a personal story she’s already told,
“I don’t have a congressional mandate, right? I can comment on whatever I want to comment on,” Avenatti said. “Ultimately your viewers and others will determined whether I’m credible or not.”
Another analyst who has worked as a prosecutor and defense attorney said he sees the chances that Cohen flips on Trump at “99.1 percent.”
