Michael Cohen sought to be Donald Trump’s running mate: report

Published

on

Longtime Donald Trump lawyer and convicted felon Michael Cohen sought to run for public office alongside his boss, The Washington Post reports.

In the fall of 2013, when Trump was considering a run for New York governor, Cohen wanted a piece of the action.

Republican political strategist Michael Caputo said Cohen also floated the idea of running for mayor of New York City and wanted a Trump-Cohen ticket to run statewide.

“He kept bringing it up,” Caputo said. “It went from Michael Cohen interested in running for mayor to, well, ‘I’ll run for lieutenant governor under Donald Trump.’ I didn’t want to disabuse him of it, because he was our liaison. I felt like, ‘Yeah, okay Michael.’”

Cohen saw Trump as his ticket to greatness.

“Yet, even while doting on ‘Mr. Trump,’ as he called his boss, Cohen was squarely focused on his own ambitions,” The Post reported. “Trump was Cohen’s ticket to greater wealth, TV appearances and Page Six, the New York Post’s daily serving of intel about Manhattan’s jet set.”

Cohen is scheduled to report to federal prison on March 6 to begin serving a three-year sentence.

Trump decided it was neither, and instead, it was false teeth falling out of her mouth.

"Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!" Trump tweeted in response to a video from the press conference.
