With each day bringing Donald Trump closer to being an ex-president and facing legal consequences for his alleged criminal activities over the years, those who know the president best are predicting that he’ll gladly toss his own children under the bus in order to save his hide.
Michael Cohen, who served for many years as Trump’s personal attorney and fixer, said Tuesday on MSNBC that he’s convinced members of the Trump family are indeed headed to prison very soon, telling host Ari Melber:
“I believe Trump does go to jail and if it’s not Trump, he’ll push one of the kids, probably Don, Jr. before Ivanka… definitely, Eric before Ivanka, but Ivanka will go to prison before Donald because that’s just who he is.”
“There is enough actions. Look, I’m suing Donald Trump right now and the Trump Organization. There is so much litigation that will come. All of the people who probably aren’t watching the show, the Republicans and the followers of Donald Trump, don’t give him your money so he has a slush fund to use your money to pay for his dirty deeds. I don’t understand what people are thinking.”
In New York alone, Trump is facing criminal charges from Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance, Jr. and the state attorney general, Tish James. Trump and the Trump Organization are suspected of having engaged in insurance fraud, tax fraud, and money laundering. Any of those charges could land the entire Trump family in prison for decades if proven in a court of law.
Would Donald Trump make his kids take the fall for him? Of course he would, and he’s so terrified of what he’s facing once he leaves office that he’s trying to suggest he won the election, even though there’s not a shred of proof that he did or that any voter fraud took place.
If Don Jr, Eric, and Ivanka had any sense, they’d contact prosecutors in New York and tell them everything they know. If they don’t, they’re going to be serving time in the place of the biggest criminal of them all, their father.
