Former President Donald Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen is warning any attorneys who might be considering representing Trump to think again.

@Acyn shared a clip from Cohen's interview with MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes via Twitter, writing, "Cohen: If Donald Trump asks you to represent him in this nightmare that he is going to be living, run."

This comes after Cohen voiced a similar opinion during an interview with MSNBC's Joy Reid, in which he warned the former president's current lawyer, Joe Tacopina, could end up like he did — in prison.

During his conversation with Hayes, Cohen said, "It didn't work out well for me, and it's not gonna work out well for you," Cohen said.

"Run as fast you can and don't run to Florida, especially not Palm Beach," he later said. "Run some place east or west but definitely don't get involved with Donald."

Trump's former "fixer" emphasized choosing not to represent the ex-president is "the smartest thing" an attorney could do.

Cohen's warnings come just hours after his testimony in Trump's hush money payments case.
