On Friday, Michael Avenatti, attorney of adult film actress Stormy Daniels, opined that President Trump’s personal lawyer will eventually “flip,” reports Breitbart News.
An Overview of Avenatti’s Statements
Avenatti clearly asserted that Cohen will ultimately turn on President Trump:
“Michael Cohen is not going to hold up. I’ve been saying that for weeks and now others are repeating it and getting on the bandwagon. Michael Cohen is going to flip on this President.”
The attorney then continued, claiming that Cohen “knows where the bodies are buried.” Avenatti furthermore opined that President Trump’s first term in office will end with his resignation.
“We’re talking about the President’s right-hand personal attorney, he is going to take the Fifth Amendment. He’ll be charged with serious offenses.”
Avenatti’s predictions regarding Cohen come after the FBI raided the latter’s office last week. The preceding raid occurred after officials obtained a warrant following a referral from Robert Mueller. Mueller is also managing the investigation into allegations of Russia collusion during the 2016 Presidential election. However, the raid of Cohen’s office is said to have no relation to the ongoing Russia probe.
