Michael Cohen is currently in court after the FBI raided his offices in regards to an alleged "hush money" payment he made to Stormy Daniels. As speculation continues as to whether or not Cohen will turn on Trump, the president decided to speak out on Twitter.

Trump on Cohen

Back in January, the Wall Street Journal released a bombshell report exposing the alleged affair between Donald Trump and adult film star Stormy Daniels that to took place in 2006, just months after Melania Trump gave birth to her son Barron.

In addition, the paper notes that Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, paid Daniels $130,000 back in 2016 to remain silent about the relationship so it wouldn't hurt Trump's chances in running for president. Fast forward to earlier this month and the FBI raided Cohen's office looking for additional information about the payout. Despite Cohen and Trump denying any wrongdoing, recent reports claim that Cohen could give up information on the president in an attempt to avoid further charges.

Following a report in the New York Times that detailed Michael Cohen possibly flipping on Donald Trump, the president sent out a series of tweets in defense of his lawyer, while bashing the paper and reporter Maggie Habberman.

"The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Habberman, 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.

"They use non-existent 'sources' and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family," Donald Trump wrote in a follow-up tweet.

"Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected," he noted, before adding, "Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories," Trump continued. In conclusion, the president added, "Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!"

Moving forward

Jay Goldberg, a longtime Donald Trump adviser, reportedly warned the president on Friday that if Michael Cohen is hit with charges of bank fraud and campaign finance laws that he is likely to turn and flip in court.

Goldberg also spoke to the Wall Street Journal during the week and compared Cohen to Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano, the former Mafia underboss in the Colombo crime family who flipped and became a government witness that helped bring down many of the higher-ups. As Trump waits on Cohen's next move, only time will tell too see what happens next.
