Michael Cohen says he thinks Jared Kushner has already flipped on Trump


Michael Cohen said he thought Jared Kushner had flipped on his father-in-law, Donald Trump.
New York prosecutors are pursuing a criminal investigation into Trump's business empire.
Cohen said it was noteworthy that Kushner's name had been absent in proceedings so far.






Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former personal attorney, said he thought Jared Kushner had already flipped on his father-in-law as the criminal investigation into Trump's business empire intensifies.

Cohen did not offer any evidence but said he thought that was the case because of how little Kushner had been mentioned.

Cohen tweeted on Wednesday that Kushner's name had been absent from "all the controversy, indictments and arrests" related to the investigation. He speculated that this was because Kushner was already cooperating with prosecutors.

"Interesting how @jaredkushner (#SecretaryOfEverything) name appears to be absent from all the controversy, indictments and arrests," Cohen tweeted. "Is he next to fall or a cooperating witness? Knowing what a snake he is, I bet the latter!"

1. Jared? Kushner? Not sure I know who that is...

He's married to my daughter?

Are you sure?

4. Poor Cohen

He keeps making these pronouncements about what's happening in rtumpland, and gets ignored. No one ever checks back if he was right or not, mostly not. He hasn't been in the inner circle in four years or so, and the public doesn't pay any attention to his insights. Fleeting fame is a he'll of a drug!

19. Probably

Cohen probably has no particular basis for saying this ... on the other hand Trump is extremely suspicious and suggestible as Lincoln Project showed (& exploited). What good it does I couldn't say.

9. Pretty sure that Michael Cohen cares deeply about...

...Michael Cohen.

That's what his entire life has been about.

Hard for people to grasp the obvious facts that Michael Cohen was a shitty unethical lawyer. So was Michael Avenatti. Just because two people are enemies doesn't make either one of them a hero.

10. I don't agree with that, Ari Melber has him on his show a lot.

I don't dislike Cohen, I see him as the little kid in school who always wanted to run around with the big boys and did stupid things to be accepted.

I do believe he has learned a big lesson, and I think he is one of those people who deserves a 2nd chance.

Did he do stupid illegal stuff? Yes, but has he contributed to the downfall of the buffoon? Yes, and time will tell by how much, so I am willing to give the guy his second chance.

7. It would make my heart glad if the prosecutors...

...intentionally didn't mention Kushner's name in filings to plant the seed of suspicion in TFG"s mind.

They know this about themselves and think anyone who doesn't act the same way is just a chump to be used.

I recall reading that Jared and Ivanka had an uncanny knack for being out of town several times when sh** was hitting the fan.

15. This makes no sense to me

Why would Jared's name come up in an investigation of the Trump Organization? He's sleeping with the boss's daughter, but he's not connected to his FIL's business at all.

On Edit: Please correct me if I'm wrong.

17. Cohen has zero insight into the Trump organization now. This is just a stupid rumor his is

spreading, for reasons known only to him.

It isn't surprising for Kushner to be out of the spotlight. He only emerged from his coffin when he was brokering arms deals in the mid-east.

18. Tend To Agree

How could Kushner flip on Donald Trump without also flipping on his own wife? That would be some juggling act, for sure.

21. Or when he was seizing PPE ordered by hospitals...

... and other organizations last year during transit, for the supposed Federal stockpile that he treated like his personal property.

20. I tend to believe it.

Kushner is as scared of going to prison as Trump. He saw his father there and I’m sure doesn’t want to follow in his footsteps.

22. Michael Cohen is a criminal and a liar

He will say anything that keeps him relevant enough to get ten more minutes on tv. Ari Melber (who I like) is fascinated with him, but then again, he was also fascinated with Avanatti, another crook and media whore.

Not sure how that would work though.

26. Jared *would* flip if they really had him

However, I think people are overestimating just how much criminality can be proven against Trump himself.

One of the advantages of being a mental invalid with the attention span of a flea is that it's really hard to put the necessary mental energy into actually breaking the law. Trump's entire MO is to surround himself with crooks who he can encourage to break the law on their own. Even if there are crimes he actually did commit himself, there's probably serious doubt that he knew -- or even had the capacity to know, given how impulsive and mentally defective he is -- that what he was doing was actually illegal.

Honestly, if his ability to plan and commit crimes was actually equal to his personal enthusiasm for criminal behavior, he'd have gone to jail long ago.

He doesn't trust anybody, and he was really mean to poor jared in the last months....

So he will probably believe enough that it will eat away at him.

30. Wouldn't be surprised.

Jared won’t take the fall for dear old dad-in-law. “Every man for himself” should be on the Trump family crest.
