Trump does not think personal lawyer Michael Cohen will 'flip'

'Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, even if it means lying or making up stories.

President Donald Trump on Saturday kicked off the second day of his weekend en route to his Palm Beach golf course and on the way, launched a Twitter attack against a storied New York Times reporter in an attempt to defend his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Trump also mentioned one of the story's authors, Maggie Haberman, in his Twitter rant, calling her a "third rate reporter" and a Hillary Clinton "flunkie who I don't speak to".

Following a recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's house, The Washington Post revealed that Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations related to questionable payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford).

Despite President Trump's wild tweetstorm about how there's no way, no how Michael Cohen would ever flip on him, Stormy Daniels' attorney rather doubts that.

But Trump suspected that his longtime lawyer would remain loyal and not help the Russian Federation investigation, which he called a "horrible Witch Hunt".

However, the second continued in the same fashion as the first as PSG netted a fifth goal after 58 minutes through a deflected effort from Di Maria.

'Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected, ' he continued. Haberman responded with a tweet that linked back to her story and took a jab at Trump's misspelling of her name.

Haberman was part of a team at The New York Times that shared the National Reporting Pulitzer Prize with The Washington Post last week for it stories about Russian interference in the 2016 election and its connections to the Trump campaign, transition team and administration.

Trump accused the Times of relying on "non-existent "sources" and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael".

Prosecutors have said they're investigating Cohen's personal business dealings but haven't said what crime they believe he may have committed.

The article, which Haberman wrote along with Sharon LaFraniere, and Danny Hakim, suggests that after years of being under-estimated and berated by Trump, Cohen finally has the upper hand.

Trump is facing numerous legal challenges in addition to the Mueller probe - from allegations women were paid money to stay quiet about affairs with him, to challenges over his family businesses.
