Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen has a warning for Peter Navarro, who served as a trade adviser in the Trump administration: Your continued loyalty to the ex-president is a “terrible mistake” and is about to send you to prison on his behalf.
During an appearance on MSNBC, Cohen was asked by host Ari Melber:
“What do you think of the potential Trump defense, which we may hear about during these hearings as they start next week, that they tried everything, but when they got near a line, he backed off. He didn’t, as you say, didn’t really go to the military. Tried Pence. It sort of ended there. What about that defense?”
“Nonsense. It’s not real. It’s not legitimate. It’s a lie. Something that Donald is so good at doing. Blatantly lies right to your face and says same lie over and over and over again. For what purpose? Ultimately the lie becomes the truth. That’s what he wants. Peter Navarro is making a terrible mistake. He’ll end up in prison. He’s foolish. One quarter of his life could be in prison. If you’re watching, I hope you are, you don’t want go there. It’s terrible. Removed from your family and friends. They destroy your name, your reputation. All for who? All for what? For Donald Trump? For democracy? To be, the democracy in peril? Seriously. What are you thinking?”
While he was at it, Cohen also addressed Navarro’s accusations that members of the Biden administration and congressional Democrats are out to get him:
“What legacy do you want to leave to your children, grandchildren and god willing great-grandchildren? Not the legacy you’re leaving now. Which he looks like a fool. Oh, my god. Went ahead, picked me up at the airport. It’s unconstitutional. First of all, Peter Navarro is not a lawyer. I don’t think he understands. He has a PhD in economics. Stick to what he knows. What he’s saying now makes him look stupid.”
Will Navarro agree to do time on Trump’s behalf and to keep the secrets he knows? That remains to be seen, but if he has an ounce of intelligence left, he’ll start singing like a proverbial bird and toss the Donald under the bus before the ex-president does it to him.
