Donald Trump gaslights America by claiming his former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes that aren’t crimes. He was sentenced to three years in prison on several charges, including campaign finance violations.
Trump wants you to believe that he knows the law better than Judge William Pauley, who specifically repeated that Cohen broke the law with hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal at Trump’s direction.
Trump tweeted: “Cohen was guilty on many charges unrelated to me, but he plead to two campaign charges which were not criminal and of which he probably was not guilty even on a civil basis.”
“Those charges were just agreed to by him in order to embarrass the president and get a much reduced prison sentence, which he did-including the fact that his family was temporarily let off the hook. As a lawyer, Michael has great liability to me!”
Trump’s claim that Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes that aren’t crimes is akin to his current lawyer Rudy Giuliani claiming “truth isn’t truth.”
