Anyone under indictment for 91 criminal and civil charges including everything from election tampering to fraudulent business practices might start to crack from the stress.
With the potential to lose his properties and maybe wind up broke in a prison cell, it’s no wonder the 77-year old former president is getting more erratic by the day as his former attorneys jump ship, admitting their own crimes and cutting plea deals to testify against him.
While some continue to believe Trump’s endless lies, there’s nothing like hearing some truth “from the horse’s mouth,” which in this case is coming from those former attorneys.
“If I knew then what I know now, I would have declined to represent Donald Trump in these post-election challenges. I look back on this experience with deep remorse,” said a teary Jenna Ellis. “I failed to do my due diligence.”
This follows similar guilty pleas and willingness to testify against Trump by two more of his former attorneys last week — Sidney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, the rats who came up with the “fake elector” scheme and somehow expected it to work and overturn the results of Trump’s 2020 election loss.
Now Cohen is back in court again, only this time to testify in the civil fraud trial New York’s attorney general is bringing against his former boss for filing false documents related to his properties. As Cohen put it in his 2020 book, Trump is ““a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man.”
