Type: Lashes out at PeopleApr 21 2018 Severity: Targeted: The New York Times
Donald Trump went on a three part Tweet rant singling out a New York Times reporter over her piece discussing the possibility that Donald Trump's personal attorney may strike a deal with the FBI and the US Attorney from the Southern District of New York and agree to cooperate with them. Trump went on to rant about the Russia investigation, which he repeatedly refers to as a witch hunt and insisted that his personal attorney would never flip and agree to work with prosecutors.
Quote | Cohen is Trump's personal attorney who recently was raided by the FBI.
"The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Habberman [sic], known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will “flip.” They use non-existent “sources” and a drunk/drugged up loser [former adviser Roger Stone] who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family. Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected. Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!"
