CNN’s John King: If POTUS Thinks He Can Separate Himself from Cohen, ‘Maybe Donald Trump Can Fly’ (Mediaite)

CNN host John King says if President Donald Trump thinks he can separate himself from his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen, then “maybe Donald Trump can fly.”

Cohen’s Manhattan office, apartment, and hotel room were recently raided by the FBI after reports he paid $130,000 in hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels just days before the November 2016 presidential election. The federal law enforcement raid prompted speculation that Cohen could flip and tell the special counsel what he knows related to the Russia investigation.

Now, Trump appears to be trying to separate himself from Cohen, perhaps even using the National Enquirer to further that narrative. CNN’s John King, though, said Tuesday on Inside Politics that the president separating himself from Michael Cohen, also known as “Trump’s fixer,” is about as likely as the president flying.
