Why would an "upstanding businessman" like Donald Trump hire sleazy Michael Cohen as his lawyer?

And keep him on his payroll for so many years?

Could it be that Donald Trump is not the "upstanding businessman" as some are inclined to argue?

Could it be that Donald Trump is just as sleazy as his lawyer?

People are known by the company they keep and Michael Cohen is acting like Michael Corleone.

Donald Trump is acting like his father.

4. There are probably a couple of people that still believe he is an upstanding businessman?



Maybe?

2. Mob bosses don't hire normal people

They only hire crooks and criminals.

7. Is it possible that Michael Cohen was trying to turn away from his early life

Last edited Mon Apr 16, 2018, 12:29 PM - Edit history (1)

of petty grifting and impress his older brother, a partner in a prestigious law firm, by getting a job in the firm's mail room and secretly getting his law degree at an obscure, second-rate law school, but then was rejected for a job with the firm after he graduated because his own brother refused to hire him, which then caused him to set up his own practice in the basement of a nail salon in a strip mall, but was unable to attract business without cutting a few ethical corners and even then couldn't make a living, until he met Donald Trump?

9. Michael Cohen? Who dat?

The White House is in full denial mode today about James Comey; the day is drawing near when Cohen gets the same treatment.

10. And Comey calls him "morally unfit"?

With a lawyer like Michael Cohen, how could he say such a thing??
