Donald Trump’s (sometimes) attorney Michael Cohen has asserted his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in the criminal case against him in the U.S. Southern District of New York. Stormy Daniels’s attorney, Michael Avenatti, broke down the historic nature of Cohen’s actions.
This is a stunning development. Never before in our nation’s history has the attorney for the sitting President invoked the 5th Amend in connection with issues surrounding the President. It is esp. stunning seeing as MC served as the “fixer” for Mr. Trump for over 10 yrs. #basta

And doesn’t that say it all!
