Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and “fixer,” has switched back to being a member of the Democratic Party.
Cohen, who has turned on his former boss despite once saying that he would take a bullet for the billionaire real estate mogul, has additionally proclaimed to his fellow Americans that the upcoming elections “might be the most important in our lifetime.”
That statement was made Sunday – just three days after Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis had tweeted that his client was further demonstrating his separation from Trump by leaving the Republican Party and returning to his previous partisan affiliation as a Democrat.
“Today, [Michael Cohen] returning to the Democratic Party another step in his journey that began with the @ABC @GStephanopolous Cohen putting family and country first -distancing himself from the values of the current Admin – Can’t wait for his first interview!” Davis tweeted, teasing to stay tuned.
On Sunday, Cohen subsequently tweeted that “the #MidtermElections2018 might be the most important vote in our lifetime, adding a pair of get-out-the-vote hashtags.

In response, Davis tweeted that “no one knows better than [Michael Cohen] why the midterm stakes are so important to #America’s future as he is the holder of truth about [Trump] #MichaelCohenTruthFund.”
Because Cohen is currently free on bail, and thus has not yet become an incarcerated felon, he will be able to vote in the New York midterm elections this November.
