Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen on working for the president & the US election – BBC Newsnight

Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, gives his first UK TV interview with Newsnight to discuss working for the president and the US election. Please subscribe here:

Donald Trump’s former ‘fixer’, who once said he would take a bullet for the president, jailed during a justice department-led inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

In 2018, Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years for lying to Congress and campaign finance fraud.

The disbarred lawyer is currently serving what remains of his three-year sentence at his home in New York, having been released from prison amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus.

He was briefly returned to jail, until a federal judge intervened and ruled that the government had made the move in retaliation for him writing his book, Disloyal: A Memoir.

Mr Trump has called Cohen “a rat” and a liar.

    Horrific interview. We’re not interested in YOUR opinion of Cohan, we’re interested in what HE has to say. You’re job is to help the audience make their own mind up. Incredibly unprofessional and extremely uninformative, props to Cohen for dealing with it the way he did.

    Interviewer: asks harsh questions to try and reach the bottom of the issue
    Comments: "You're being too harsh"
    Yeah except you're all clapping of something of the same sort happens to Trump. Anyone with a problem with this interview needs to look inside himself, find the double standard, and kill it before it ruins you further.

    We know whoTrump is, and 63 million Americans knew before they voted for him, Trump does not pretend to be something he is not, unlike Biden and his family. We now have the corroboration with a business partner of Biden, https://youtu.be/aiiSq7toqlQ

    Yeshua is coming soon. Vacation and the Great Tribulation are imminent. Hear the children of God who have ears to hear and are wise. If left in the great tribulation, the church has no salvation except martyrdom. It is said that most of the modern churches that do not preach the Second Coming of Jesus are left behind. Come out from there and stand alone with God in true worship.
    Prepare the churches with repentance and holiness.

    Where the stories on Joe Biden's racist past. He gave the eulogy for a card carrying Klansman. His votes against segregation. His sexual harassment accuser. He was against killing Bin Laden. Hunter Biden's laptop with money laundering and child pornagraphy on it. The FBI investigation. The lies he has told. No journalism here just Trump bias. Where is the apology for reporting the Russian hoax.

    The BBC interviewer is 100% Outrageously Rude and Unprofessional. I'll NEVER watch/listen to the BBC again. I believe Michael Cohen. He made errors in judgement for his then Boss. He's paid/is paying the price and has explained his side. Sorry, Mr. Cohen that you were treated so unprofessionally. I believe you. And wish you and your family very well. I can absolutely see how people get carried away with the idea that "If the President does it–it's not illegal." Looking forward to reading your book. God Bless You and Your Family. "This too shall pass"…

    This lady knows nothing about cults and should've gotten
    educated before she made a fool of herself. Cohen is working hard to make ammends by letting the world know about who Trump is and his experience getting sucked into that destructive cult. What more more does she want from him? I wish more ex members of destructive manipulative groups would do the same.

    Hey, BBC, it's about time you handed this comment section to your left wing communist bosses, it's time they realised we all see through your BS.
    Oh, and employing vile sexist feminists with a blatant bias as interviewers is extremely transparent

    Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around with flowing robes and love to be greeted with respect in the markeplaces, and have the most important seats in the synagogue, and the places of honor at banquets. They devour widows'houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. These men will be punished most severely.
    Come out of her.
    So that you will not share with her sins, and you will not receive any of her plagues, because her sins are piled up to Heaven and God has remembered her crimes.
    Warning Against Hypocrisy
    on Matthew 23 NIV

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

    The timing of the "report" raises more questions of impartiality. The BBC is not helping itself.
