Breaking news just dropped involving a pardon request made of President Trump from a recently indicted, high-profile figure, and an answer has been given.
Disgraced attorney Michael Cohen — President Trump’s former lawyer — had the gall to ask the Trump White House for a pardon. The request was quickly denied, and Cohen later pled guilty to multiple crimes. His prison sentence begins in May.
It’s become even clearer now why Cohen chose to throw his former boss, Donald Trump, under the bus: Cohen remains on the hook for eight federal crimes, and he was hoping Trump would bail him out.
But times of adversity test the true character of a person, and Cohen has proven by his behavior that he cannot be trusted. His testimony before Congress was full of lies meant to ‘save face’ with the DC establishment and destroy the Trump presidency.
“It’s laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders before Cohen’s testimony. “Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same.”
“Michael Cohen,” Trump tweeted, “was just disbarred by the State Supreme Court for lying & fraud. He did bad things unrelated to Trump. He is lying in order to reduce his prison time. Using Crooked’s lawyer!”
