On Saturday (June 10), former President Trump’s ex-attorney Michael Cohen claimed that Trump would “throw anyone and everyone under the bus” after an unsealed indictment alleged that the former President misled his lawyer about the classified documents in his possession.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Katie Phang, Cohen asserted Trump “will throw anyone and everyone under the bus… to preserve his own freedom” and for his benefit.
The indictment details Trump’s communications with several of his lawyers, including “Trump Attorney 1,” who refers to Evan Corcoran, according to The Washington Post.
After meeting with Corcoran to discuss the response to the Department of Justice’s subpoena, Trump aide Walter Nauta allegedly moved several documents between a storage facility and the Mar-a-Lago residence at the direction of the former President.
However, Trump and Nauta did not tell Corcoran, causing him and another attorney to falsely testify that they had fully complied with the subpoena, according to the indictment.
Corcoran was later forced to testify before a federal grand jury after a judge ruled there was enough evidence to warrant legal counsel to further the crime.
Cohen suggested on Saturday that Trump could be storing other documents elsewhere.
He joked that it was necessary to play “Where’s Waldo?” but instead of Waldo, it was the “top secret documents” that Trump was storing.
Cohen suggested, “Every single location that [Trump] went to, from when he left the White House to today,” should be investigated, claiming that if that wasn’t the case, Trump would use other hidden documents to “extort America.”
