Michael Cohen Says Trump Is “For Sale”

The former attorney general of the United States, Donald Trump, has launched an incredible personal assault on his former employer, alleging that legal matters have compromised him. Michael Cohen made remarks to reporters that appeared to be an attempt to harm Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, saying that the former commander-in-chief is now “for sale” and “open to the highest bidder” due to penalties and legal bills totaling more than half a billion dollars.

On February 18, Cohen acknowledged Trump’s mounting legal issues in an interview with MSNBC’s “The Weekend.” Following allegations of fraud in his family firm, the former president was recently ordered by a New York court to pay about $355 million. The state’s attorney general, Letitia James (D), filed the case. In addition to the $5 million Carroll received in 2023 from a sexual abuse lawsuit, a federal judge this month ordered him to pay writer E Jean Carroll $83.3 million in a defamation dispute.

With little under $450 million left over, Trump would have to spend most of his estimated $640 million in cash and personal assets. With the cost of his legal representation and the 91 criminal charges he still faces, Trump may soon run into serious financial difficulties.

Cohen isn’t quite an impartial witness, even though Trump has significant legal obligations. A former Trump Organization executive, he and the former president had a major falling out in 2019 over purportedly unpaid legal expenses. Cohen played a significant role in the accusations of cooperation with Russia. Although he didn’t succeed in harming Trump back then, it appears he’s attempting once more.
