Michael Cohen hires Trump critic and ex-Clinton lawyer Lanny Davis

Wednesday, around the time I started realizing I was a bit too smacked off tequila to properly explain why I suddenly wanted to listen to Fastball's 1998 bop "The Way" on repeat, Cohen tweeted out a video teasing some sort of Trump-related mockery he's been working on. Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity.

He added, "Michael Cohen deserves to tell his side of the story - subject, of course, to the advice of counsel".

His experience section no longer says his job is "personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump".

Cohen, who became Donald Trump's personal lawyer in 2007, reportedly paid $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election to keep quiet about her alleged 2006 affair with the real estate billionaire.

"Consistency and stability, as opposed to chaos and flip-flopping every moment, every hour every day, is the problem with the Donald Trump presidency", Davis said.

A photo of Baron Cohen's face scrolls across the screen, followed by the text, "He's back as you've never seen him before". Trump quickly realized he was being taken for a ride and ended the interview after just a short time. "I put family and country first", Cohen said. This would explain why President Trump made his comments against Cohen, as he will regularly talk poorly about celebrities that don't approve of his decisions.

The FBI raided his home, office, and hotel room in April, and seized about four million documents. Roughly a week later he pleaded guilty in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to lying to the FBI and agreed to cooperate with the Russian Federation inquiry.

Cohen nearly certainly knew this when he hire Davis - making it all that much more likely that he plans to turn against the president.

Davis joins lawyer Guy Petrillo in representing Cohen amid possible charges from federal prosecutors.

The change on Michael Cohen's Twitter and LinkedIn comes four days after he publicly cut ties to Trump in a rare interview. An article in Deadline outlines how the comedian has had run-ins with President Trump in the past.

Legal experts consider this a sign that Cohen is ready to "flip" on Trump and cooperate in the government's investigation into Trump's possible ties to Russian Federation.
