President Trump lashed out at “the dishonest media” in defense of his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who is under pressure from prosecutors in the wake of the FBI raid on his office and home last week.
“The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Haberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will ‘flip,’” Trump tweeted from his motorcade in Florida Saturday in the first of three posts.
“They use non-existent ‘sources’ and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family,” he continued.
“Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected. Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!” he tweeted.
The posts referred to a front-page New York Times story on Cohen quoting sources that describe Trump’s dismissive and demeaning behavior toward the attorney — and amid speculation that the lawyer might cut a deal with federal prosecutors in a case against the president.
