Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen suggested during an interview with MSNBC on Friday that Americans will soon see “indictments start flying” against former President Donald Trump and members of his inner circle.
According to Breitbart, the disgraced attorney’s comments came as part of a discussion about an ongoing criminal probe into the former president and his Trump Organization being led by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance.
Cohen indicated that he’d been interviewed no less than eight times by the DA’s office — even though he’s already been exposed as a liar who clearly has a bone to pick with Trump.
“You’re going to see very soon, in my opinion, indictments start flying,” Cohen claimed Friday, according to Breitbart. “There’s over a million documents, and rest assured there’s one thing I can tell you about Cy Vance and Mark Pomerantz and the entire district attorney team, they are well organized.”
Vance: “The work continues”
The probe into Trump’s business practices has been going on since Cohen was in federal prison for tax evasion and campaign finance violations. Much of the investigation so far has been spent fighting to gain access to Trump’s tax returns.
However, despite Cohen’s claims that indictments are soon coming, the future of the probe seems far from set in stone. District Attorney Vance is planning to step down at the end of the year, according to The Washington Post, and it is possible that his resignation could kill the investigation.
Vance has promised that “the work continues” despite his impending departure, according to the Associated Press. But for Trump’s lawyers, it may be worth considering the idea that Vance is bailing on the probe because he knows it’s going nowhere and could destroy his reputation.
If Vance truly had a case that could take Trump down, he would become a legend among leftists overnight. No smart political operative would step away from an opportunity like that.
In the meantime, however, it’s become quite clear that progressives and anti-Trump figures like Cohen won’t soon be giving up on their dreams of crushing Trump.
Trump: Still an icon
Indeed, though Trump may no longer be president, he is still a danger to the Democratic Party, as many pundits argue that his policies have restructured the GOP agenda at its core.
With Trump at the helm, the Republican Party is beginning a purge of weak members who have long hampered the national caucus, and the GOP is taking bigger strides in its opposition to Democrats than it has in decades.
It all adds up to bad news for Dems, who still want to take Trump down by any means necessary. Unfortunately for them, Michael Cohen certainly won’t be the man to do it — and with his exit on the horizon, DA Vance may not be, either.
