Trump Gives Bonkers Interview On Fox And Friends, Immediately Gets Used Against Him In Court

Donald Trump gave such an insane interview on Fox & Friends this morning that the hosts kept trying to pull him back in to address the questions at hand. He rambled on and on and admitted to things he previously denied.  Trump was like that racist uncle you try to calm down as he rants and raves while making himself look even worse. Trump was yelling on the phone during the interview while talking about FBI raids of Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, then suddenly, he tried to distance himself from his longtime attorney Michael Cohen. “I have nothing to do with his business,” he said, then claimed that Cohen only dealt with “a tiny, tiny little fraction” of his overall legal work.

Watch:

“Michael is in business — he’s really a businessman, a fairly big business as I understand it, I don’t know his business but this doesn’t have to do with me,” Trump said of Cohen. “Michael is a businessman. He’s got a business, he also practices law. I would say probably the big thing is his business, and they’re looking at something to do with his business. This doesn’t have to do with me. I have many attorneys — sadly, I have so many attorneys you wouldn’t even believe it.”

But, Cohen has argued that the documents the FBI seized in a raid related to his work for Trump should be protected by attorney-client privilege, but the so-called president just destroyed his attorney’s argument and federal prosecutors in New York noticed.

On Thursday, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York argued on that the public statements by Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity indicated that the materials seized from Cohen are “unlikely” to contain large amounts of privileged information, which Trump’s attorneys had previously claimed.

“These statements by two of Cohen’s three identified clients suggest that the seized materials are unlikely to contain voluminous privileged documents, further supporting the importance of efficiency here,” Robert Khuzami, the deputy U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood.

Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti is all over this.

I imagine the hosts of Fox & Friends are tossing back a few shots of Jack Daniels right now.
