Ex-Trump lawyer claims prosecutors are using Cohen’s history as a mob go-between for Trump to force him to flip

Published

Michael Cohen used his ties with the mob to score favors for Donald Trump, according to another former lawyer for the president.

During a discussion about Cohen on MSNBC host Ari Melber’s Thursday show, former Trump lawyer Jay Goldberg explained that he believes Cohen will be forced to flip on the president to save himself.

Melber asked if the pressure Cohen feels is for actions he did to benefit himself or to benefit Trump.

“I think both,” Goldberg said. “I think you have to understand something that hasn’t been made clear enough. And I hope you understand it, every builder in New York City is the subject of mob influence by unions. The mob will tell the builder, ‘Unless you give me a portion of moneys, you will have labor strikes and this.’ Or, ‘there will be garbage not picked up on time.'”

He said that it prompts people to ask why it is the U.S. Attorney in the southern district that is investigating Michael Cohen. Some think it’s Russia, but Goldberg said that he thinks the federal prosecutors and investigators have evidence that Cohen “fixed things” for Trump for the mob.

Cohen proudly painted himself as Trump’s “fixer,” and Goldberg explained, “I think that Michael Cohen regaled people with the fact that he was connected to mob influence.”

Former Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor Nick Akerman explained that if anyone would know about Cohen, Trump and mob ties, it would be Goldberg.

“I first met him when he represent — when I was prosecuting [Goldberg] as the boss of a family,” said Ackerman. “Jay Goldberg represented other members of that family. If anybody knows about the mob and has an inside story on that, it’s Jay Goldberg.”

Cohen’s clients have already been busted for running alleged scams with the Russian mob. Alleged mobster Felix Sater has already “told family he knows he and POTUS are going to prison,” according to sources close to the family. Trump has also been caught on video palling around with an alleged mobster he previously denied knowing.
