Michael Cohen destroys Trump’s defense of Stormy Daniels payoff: ‘Of course’ he knew it was illegal

Published

on

Former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on Friday that President Donald Trump knew he was doing something wrong when he paid off former mistresses during the 2016 presidential campaign.

During the interview, Cohen copped to his actions and accepted that he knowingly committed a crime to help Trump get elected two years ago.

“I knew what I was doing was wrong,” he said. “I stood up before the world and I accepted the responsibility for my actions.”

Stephanopoulos then asked Cohen if Trump himself knew it was wrong to authorize the payments.

“Of course,” Cohen replied, while also adding that Trump was concerned about how revelations of past affairs would affect his presidential hopes in the wake of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape in which he bragged about sexually assaulting women by grabbing their genitals.

Cohen said he was saddened, but not surprised, to see the president refusing to admit any wrongdoing.

“Instead of him taking responsibility for his actions, what does he do?” Cohen said. “He attacks my family.”

“I’m not going to the f*cking White House,” Rapinoe told Eight by Eight Magazine, saying she doubted Trump would risk inviting them. “We’re not gonna be invited. I doubt it.”

Trump has canceled visits by other championship teams, such as this year’s Philadelphia Eagles, after most of the players vowed to decline the invitation.

Published

On Wednesday, following Trump's virtually incomprehensible rant on Fox Business about how Twitter is secretly stifling his content, conservative lawyer George Conway posted a scathing rebuke of his behavior:

George Conway, the husband of Trump's former campaign manager and counselor Kellyanne Conway, has been a frequent and vocal critic of the president's behavior.

Republicans have increasingly scapegoated an imagined political conspiracy of social media companies for every problem that they have online, claiming that there is a plot to censor or "shadow ban" conservative content.
