Skip to comments.Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen: Vote or face more years of ‘craziness’

President Trump's former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen is urging Americans to vote in the upcoming midterm elections to avoid more years of "craziness."
"Listen, here's my recommendation. Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, and get to the poll, because if not, you are going to have another two or another six years of this craziness," Cohen told CNN.
"So, make sure you vote. All right?"
Cohen's comments, made during an interview outside his home in Manhattan, come as he is reportedly willing to campaign for Democrats this fall.
The brief appearance marks Cohens first on-camera media interview since he pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts in August.
Cohen made a similar voting plea last week, declaring that the midterms might be the most important vote in our lifetime.
Cohen confirmed earlier this month that he had re-registered as a Democrat after serving as the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC) following the 2016 election.
He resigned from the position in June after federal prosecutors began investigating him for bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations.
Cohen, for for years identified as a Democrat, told CNN on Friday that he made the party switch at the request of the GOPs committee when he joined the organization.
"I've been Democrat for pretty much my whole entire life, Cohen told the outlet. I switched because of a request of the RNC. Couldn't be the vice chair of the RNC and be a Democrat."
He later walked away from a CNN reporter after they asked about his meeting with investigators.
Cohen reportedly met with prosecutors earlier this week who are looking into Trump's family business and charity.
CNN reported Wednesday that Cohen was spotted leaving the New York City office of his attorney, Guy Petrillo, where they reportedly met with officials from the New York Attorney General's office.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom McKay, who is leading the prosecution of Cohen for bank and tax fraud as well as campaign finance law violations, was spotted by the network entering the building earlier in the day.
The purpose of the meeting is unclear and spokespeople for the law enforcement offices declined to comment.
After all, mob violence have value.
The Democrat Party is driven by craziness. That isn’t going to go away no matter how many Republicans get elected.
If by craziness he mean democrats going bat shit crazy every minute of every day, then, yes, he’s right.
Registering as a democrat was part of his plea deal with Mueller.
what an ungrateful backstabber !
After Mueller is exposed, Trump should pardon everyone immediately except for Cohen.
Only commute Cohen’s sentence to time served when Trump leaves in 2024.
Advice from a criminal? ROTFLMAO!!!!! But then again, he is a demoncrap!
Mobs and slobs.
Cohen - One of the faces of DNC.
“”I’ve been Democrat for pretty much my whole entire life, Cohen told the outlet. I switched because of a request of the RNC. Couldn’t be the vice chair of the RNC and be a Democrat.” “
Oh, Merciful Maude. If what he said is true, then the REPUBLICANS were the insane ones. WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD WANT THIS? The was a set-up, from the word GO...
I hope they nail this ungrateful POS to the wall.
Let that be a lesson to the RNC. Appoint LOYAL people to your Party apparatus.
Don’t hire Dems and ask them to change their label for covenience.
Some genius wanted to hire Cohen, and he turned onto a traitorous quisling who betrayed his attorney-client privilege at the first chance he got.
[”I’ve been Democrat for pretty much my whole entire life, Cohen told the outlet.]
Well, that seems quite obvious. But thanks for letting us know.
Why Trump chose this lawyer is beyond me.
He had/has so many to choose from but Cohen?
Trump is great at many things but choosing lawyers is not one of his strengths.
Unless I am missing something here.
The babble from this ash hole reminds me the Pueblo crew saying they were war criminals to make the beatings stop.
He may have been a Democrat, before. But there is something about this which reminds me of the Patti Hearst embrace of the Leftist cult that kidnapped her. Cannot yet put it into words, but there is something in the sequential context that really bothers me.
A willingness to campaign for Democrats must have been part of the plea deal.
Cohen is now bought & paid for. His other financial crimes are hanging over him.
What a bad person.
Spying for the DNC.
Did he get MK Ultraed?
