“He used a word to me a few weeks ago that he’d never used before — he said it’s like a cult,” Deutsch revealed

“I got caught up in a cult,” Cohen reportedly said.

“Let me ask you, because Donny called it a cult, Jim Comey called it a mob family,” host Nicolle Wallace noted.

“Well, there’s close similarities between a cult and a mob family,” Figliuzzi noted.
