Trump Reportedly Now Fears Michael Cohen Corruption Investigation More Than Mueller Probe

Longtime Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen poses a greater “imminent” threat to the White House than special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations into Russia interference in the 2016 election and obstruction of justice, The New York Timesreported Friday.


Citing “several” people close to President Trump, the times reports his “advisers have concluded that a wide-ranging corruption investigation in New York poses a greater and more imminent threat to the president than even the special counsel’s investigation.”

The president has also “found himself increasingly isolated” The Times explained.

“Mr. Trump, Mr. Cohen and their teams were still scrambling on Friday to assess the damage from the raid early Monday morning,” The Times. “They remained unsure what had been taken, an uncertainty that has heightened the unease around Mr. Trump.”
