Karma is starting to catch up with Donald Trump, and today brings even more bad news for a president who is already facing impeachment, removal from office, and falling poll numbers as more details of his high crimes and misdemeanors come to light.
According to CNN, Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, is returning to New York in the weeks ahead to testify before a grand jury that is considering issuing indictments against Trump:
“The information, if deemed credible, could result in Cohen testifying before a grand jury, the official said.”
The meeting will reportedly happen later this month and will reportedly be held
“at the district attorney’s office in Lower Manhattan with Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance’s general counsel and the head of the economic crimes bureau.”
Prosecutors with the Manhattan DA’s office previously met with Cohen in September at the federal prison in Otisville, New York, where Cohen is serving a three-year sentence after he pleaded guilty to various charges, including campaign finance violations he engaged in on Trump’s behalf. Those actions included paying off two women who say they had affairs with the president a decade ago.
Also, it should be noted that Trump cannot claim Cohen is cooperating with prosecutors in Manhattan in order to lessen his own time behind bars, CNN notes
“Cohen is not looking to trade information for a lighter sentence, the official said. He is coming forward with information and meeting with officials without any limitations, the official said.”
Cohen knows a lot about Trump’s dirty laundry, including affairs he may have had and possible financial crimes that may have been committed by both the president and the Trump Organization, which is currently being run by Trump’s two eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric, both of whom could also be facing indictment if they played a role in any of those crimes.
With each day, more bad news arrives for Donald Trump. He’s now looking at being removed from office and arrested the second he walks out of the White House.
As Trump is learning the hard way, karma is a one hell of a cruel mistress.
