Just to round out Trump’s terrible, horrible, very bad week.

President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has participated over the last month in multiple interview sessions lasting for hours with investigators from the office of special counsel, Robert Mueller, sources tell ABC News.
The special counsel’s questioning of Cohen, one of the president’s closest associates over the past decade, has focused primarily on all aspects of Trump’s dealings with Russia — including financial and business dealings and the investigation into alleged collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign and its surrogates to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.
Investigators were also interested in knowing, the sources say, whether Trump or any of his associates discussed the possibility of a pardon with Cohen.
That sound you heard was Trump’s orange-tinted asshole slamming shut in abject terror.
Michael Cohen knows EVERYTHING about Trump’s hush payments to his mistresses, his business dealings, and even the things that were happening during the campaign.
So if he is spilling his guts, Mueller’s team is very likely overwhelmed with the sheer volume of immoral, unethical and illegal activities being laid out before them.
What’s more Cohen kinda sorta bragged about his cooperation.
Courtesy of the New York Daily News:
Michael Cohen tweeted and quickly deleted a third-person message Thursday night that confirmed his “critical” cooperation against President Trump in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference.
“Good for Michael Cohen for providing critical information to the #MuellerInvestigation without a cooperation agreement,” Cohen posted from his own Twitter handle. “No one should question his integrity, veracity or loyalty to his family and country over @POTUS @realdonaldtrump.”
Cohen, who pleaded guilty to fraud and campaign finance crimes last month, deleted the post within seconds, but not before it spread like wildfire across social media.
It was later explained that Cohen attorney Lanny Davis wrote the tweet and then sent it to Cohen for distribution after he tweeted it, but Cohen jumped the gun and tweeted it first.
I don’t know how that makes any difference actually since it is pretty clear that the message being sent to Trump is that his former attorney is giving up all of the family secrets, and doing so voluntarily.
