President Donald Trump broke his silence on Michael Cohen’s guilty plea with an attempted joke.
The president’s longtime attorney implicated Trump as part of a criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance law related to hush money payouts to his mistresses just before the 2016 election.
Trump barely commented on the news Tuesday, but he broke his silence Wednesday morning.
“If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!” Trump tweeted.
