Donald Trump melts down on Twitter and claims his former lawyer Michael Cohen became a “rat” after the FBI “broke into his office.” Um, the FBI didn’t break into anything. They appeared at his door with a warrant that was signed by the Justice Department because crimes were committed.
Trump rage-tweeted: “Remember, Michael Cohen only became a “Rat” after the FBI did something which was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of until the Witch Hunt was illegally started. They BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE! Why didn’t they break into the DNC to get the Server, or Crooked’s office?”

It’s interesting that he has yet to comment on his former buddy David Pecker, who flipped on him and is corroborating Michael Cohen’s claims about hush money payments to his former mistress Playboy model Karen McDougal. Shouldn’t he be going after Pecker too?
This was one of several tweets Trump vomited out on Twitter on Sunday as the walls close in on him as every organization he is connected to are under investigation. He also attacked Saturday Night Live for mercilessly mocking him with the It’s a Wonderful Life spoof pretending that his presidency never existed.
Cohen was sentenced to three years in federal prison last week after he pleaded guilty following the FBI raids of committing bank fraud, tax evasion and campaign finance violations. He said he committed the campaign finance violations at Trump’s direction when he paid Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal hush-money to keep quiet about their affairs with Trump.
Reaction on Twitter:
Break in and warrant are two different things. You paid someone to break in/hack into the DNC server and paid Wikileaks to release it. You made it public so it can’t be used as evidence against them. Stop crying about it.

I thought he did Public Relations for you. You said you had other smarter lawyers.

If by “BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE” you mean:
“systematically and legally collected sufficient evidence to obtain judicial approval for a search warrant, and then conducted an authorized and legal search and seizure in a polite and professional manner”

By saying he was a “Rat” you are admitting he was part of your crime team! Not so smart! Sad!
