Michael Cohen is a bad lawyer!

Stormy Daniels' manager has just released a statement that Cohen has violated the NDA by releasing information about the $130,000 payment. Daniels' manager/agent stated that she is now free to discuss her relationship with Trump.

Oh jeez, to be a fly on the wall!

1. He doesn't seem to be very smart . . .

or knowledgable on certain subjects, like, I don't know, the LAW!

8. His job for the Trump Org has been to create, arrange, disguise

and conceal dodgy financial transactions, which is what he also did to pay off Stormy Daniels, certainly at Trump's request. He's probably not used to having these transactions discovered and revealed, so he didn't have a credible cover story at the ready. Note, however, that he said: “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” and that he also said he used his own funds to facilitate the payment, not that he made the payment itself with his own money. So he did use his legal skills, such as they are, to make a careful statement that didn't actually say what it was initially interpreted as saying.

But I agree that he's not a very good lawyer. A good lawyer wouldn't say he'd take a bullet for his client or do illegal things for his client; a good lawyer would objectively advise his client as to what he legally could and could not do. All Cohen really seems to know is how to cleverly lie, cheat and steal. I hope he goes down with his client. At a minimum he probably should be disbarred.

2. But a really swell guy

In fact, I'm thinking of contacting Mr. Cohen to ask if he couldn't "facilitate" a payment out of his own pocket on my behalf. GoCohenMe could give GoFundMe a real run for the money (if you know what I mean).

3. Water is also wet

I have never been impressed with Cohen since he made the claim that it was legally impossible to rape one's spouse

9. Also, why would he have paid Stormy Daniels to keep quiet?

If this is investigated, he might have a problem.

Has he paid settlements for other clients from his personal account? Why?

This is, to say the least, unusual and needs to be checked into very carefully by maybe, say the Bar Association. Why would he have paid Stormy Daniels out of his own money? Did he have an affair with her? And did Trump reimburse him? Did he pay her out of money Trump paid him?

And who were the parties to the contract? It was Stormy Daniels and Cohen? It was Stormy Daniels and Trump?

Lots of questions about this.

11. You have to wonder if Cohen purposely did that?

To take the heat of the other scandals that Trump is involved with!

22. I don't see any good lawyer willing to throw under the bus his reputation for such client...

Not only, he doesn't pay his lawyers (or anyone by the way) but he doesn't follow what they say.

You can have the best lawyer ever, but if you keep undermining his strategy, you will just lose on both sides : case and money...

He needs to be loyal and to lie. T does not look for competency in anything. Just look at his cabinet!

26. He's a bad lawyer for two reasons.....

1, He sure looks just like he's quiding somebody's pro quo and got caught at it.
2. He's a lawyer dumb enough to put up $130,000 of his own money and not get paid by the most notorious deadbeat of all: il Cheetolini.
