On Thursday, CNN reporter M.J. Lee predicted a white-hot White House meltdown when President Donald Trump turns on his television February 7 to watch his former personal attorney Michael Cohen testifying publicly in front of Congress on what will presumably be a wide variety of topics.
“The president has already had a pretty hard time keeping himself in check when it comes to matters related to Michael Cohen,” Lee said. “We’re going to have a day of Michael Cohen openly testifying in Congress, and it’ll be a day’s worth of coverage and it’ll be a very big day for Michael Cohen in terms of him coming out with his story.”
“Just imagine the potential reaction that we’re going to see from the president as he looks up and sees Michael Cohen, his former lawyer, saying all of these things in such a public setting,” Lee continued, wearing an expression that was equal parts amused anticipation and sheer dread. “I think our White House reporters would probably agree that that is going to have a tremendous impact on the president, his mood, and how he potentially decides to lash out.”
