Trump’s attorney/buddy/fixer Michael Cohen is potentially the last piece of the puzzle to bringing down the scandal once and for all due to his lifetime of “alleged” crimes. The Feds have been putting the pressure on Cohen in hopes of getting to Trump, that much is obvious and they aren’t being quiet about it.
There are two areas they are focusing on to flip Cohen.
1. The first is an all-out effort to show Cohen just how screwed he really is. He has an virtually zero chance of surviving a trial and they are making sure he knows it.
2. The feds are likely following that up with a strong offer that he can’t refuse. The details have not been released, but they are hinting at just how bad they are wanting him to flip and what they are willing to give to make that happen.
The Feds have started going after Cohen’s business partner the “Taxi King”, Gene Friedman, on lots of criminal charges and according to CNN they offered him only 2 to 6 years in prison if he pleads guilty.
He was not interested and was willing to just see how it goes at trial. In the process the Feds figured out that he’s a very big key to get to Cohen, so they went back and offered him a deal with no prison time and of course he immediately flipped.
Clearly, they want Cohen nailed so badly that they are willing to cut deals with other criminals like the “Taxi King” just to get to him. The case against Cohen is being built in such an over-the-top way that he has no hope of avoiding prison and he has to know that.
If the Feds are willing to cut this deal just to get Cohen, can you imagine what kind of deal they will offer Cohen for Trump? If Cohen isn’t convinced that he needs to flip by now, it will only be a matter of time.
