Earlier today, Michael Cohen met with the Manhattan District Attorney’s office for the eighth time to discuss the ongoing criminal case against Donald Trump and the Trump Organization. Cohen then appeared on the Rachel Maddow show tonight and spoke with guest host Ali Velshi.

Cohen explained that while prosecutors haven’t specifically asked him to keep quiet about the criminal case, he doesn’t want to go too deep into specifics, because he doesn’t want the Trumps to benefit by learning about the case against them in advance. But Cohen did go on to discuss the case in general.

One of the hot topics is the Manhattan DA’s reported decision to try to pressure Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg into flipping on Trump. Cohen said, “Would it be better to have the accountant? Always. There was not a single dollar in, and not a single dollar out of that company, that did not cross Allen Weisselberg’s desk.” But Cohen went on to confirm Palmer Report’s suspicion that whether Weisselberg ends up cooperating or not, prosecutors already have more than enough evidence against Trump.

Cohen summed things up this way when it comes to why these financial crimes are so problematic for Donald Trump: “Paper doesn’t lie, individuals do.”

   

Michael Cohen said he’s aware that a lot of people watching wish he would just spill his guts about Trump right now, on live television. But he added that “I choose not to, simply because it doesn’t help the District Attorney and it doesn’t help the investigation.” He added that he expects we’ll soon see “indictments start flying.”
