Comparing Cohen to former Trump aide Paul Manafort, the President tweeted: "I feel very badly for Paul Manafort and his wonderful family. "Justice" took a 12 year old tax case, among other things, applied tremendous pressure on him and, unlike Michael Cohen, he refused to "break" — make up stories in order to get a "deal." Such respect for a brave man!"
Trump further defended Manafort, tweeting: "A large number of counts, ten, could not even be decided in the Paul Manafort case. Witch Hunt!"
And as we mentioned earlier Wednesday, Trump also brought up President Obama's campaign finance violations (granted they were a bit less salacious).
None of the charges against Manafort and Cohen have anything to do with Trump, the Trump campaign or the 2016 US election - however Cohen's new admission through his lawyer (and longtime Clinton pal) Lanny Davis could spell trouble for the president.
