Michael Cohen has been on MSNBC and other news outlets, sending messages to Rudy Giuliani that there is no doubt the feds have some extremely strong evidence against him, and he needs to seriously consider telling the truth about the former guy, and making a deal, unless he wants to spend the rest of his life in prison. Of course, Michael Cohen knows how traumatic it is to have to face these hard facts.
I guess the big question is whether the former guy will pay Rudy off enough, or convince Rudy that he will pay him enough, to make Rudy want to take his chances at a trial. That wouldn’t be a very smart bet, but then we’re talking about Rudy here. It would certainly be a circus of a trial to watch, if it goes that far and Rudy lives that long.
My recommendation to Rudy would be to go ahead and squeeze some cash out of the former guy if you can, but still listen to Cohen’s sage advice – the former guy is not your friend.
