Years ago, attorney Michael Cohen worked for former President Trump. During his time as the former president’s attorney, Cohen infamously said he would take a bullet for him.
However, things have long changed. Cohen spent some time behind bars, due to campaign finance violations and tax crimes. Once the attorney’s legal issues began to grow, he said he was sucked into doing Trump’s dirty work.
Cohen’s since been let out of prison. He maintains that his ex-boss is dangerous, a con man, and much more. Some of the former president’s supporters have questioned the attorney doing such an about-face on Trump, but that’s not slowing him down in the slightest.
While speaking with MSNBC this past weekend, Cohen went as far as branding Trump as a “cult leader,” documents Breitbart News.
Diving Into Cohen’s Latest Comments About Trump
On Sunday, Cohen sat down with MSNBC to discuss his views about Trump’s rallies. The former Trump attorney was asked by MSNBC about “cultish Q-Anon music” that the network claims is played at the former president’s rallies.
Cohen responded to this line of questioning by stating his former boss is a “cult leader” with zero regard for what individuals actually stand for.
"[Trump] is legitimately a cult leader," says his former lawyer @MichaelCohen212, on Trump’s embrace of QAnon. "He doesn't care about you as an individual, he doesn't care what you stand for— as long as you stand for him." #velshihttps://t.co/A7IQK9Jfcd

The attorney then alleged that Trump doesn’t care about individuals themselves, nor does he have any true knowledge of what QAnon actually entails.
Next, Cohen told MSNBC that Trump is only aware about followers of QAnon also supporting him, which is all that matters.
These statements from Cohen aren’t new at all. He’s previously alleged that Trump only cares about what he can get from various individuals. In fact, this is why different left-wing, anti-Trump networks like MSNBC regularly invite Cohen on air.
More on Cohen’s Interview
Before his segment on MSNBC ended, Cohen made it clear that he believes the Justice Department should indict Trump.
According to the former president’s ex-lawyer, Trump is holding “more documents” than the ones collected by the FBI back in August. This is when the agency infamously raided Trump’s Florida estate.
There must be additional papers. It returned yet to NARA. The DOJ needs to pay a visit to all properties where Trump has a place as well as the Fifth Avenue unit, Junior, Ivanka and Eric’s homes. https://t.co/OW9pIyXEkS

Later, Cohen went on the record to say he believes the FBI needs to raid even more places attached to not just Trump, but also Trump’s adult children.
Cohen’s time on MSNBC even involved posing the possibility of Trump having photocoped certain documents prior to them being confiscated by the FBI.
Finally, Michael Cohen claimed that if anyone else were in the shoes of the former president, they’d already be behind bars at this point.
