Asking If I'd Pardon Michael Cohen Is A 'Stupid Question'

Asking If I'd Pardon Michael Cohen Is A 'Stupid Question'

"Stupid question", Trump declared after Karl asked, "Mr. President, what about Michael Cohen?".

Trump said ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl's question was "stupid". Then, he tried to move to another subject.

But the turn of phrase left political reporters unsure what she meant, especially since it was the second time Sanders was asked the question in the space of just a few hours. In addition, prosecutors reportedly are looking at whether Cohen committed bank fraud, along with possible improper campaign donations to the president.

"The president's been clear that he hasn't done anything wrong", White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said.




Cohen and Trump have had a close relationship over the years. Trump has accused the New York Times of trying to "destroy" Cohen and get him to "flip", leading reporters to ask at Monday's press briefing what Trump may have done that Cohen could "flip about".

One former assistant USA attorney, however, told Business Insider why he thinks it's likely Cohen will flip. "Sorry, I don't see Michael doing that despite the terrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!"

"They use non-existent "sources" and a drunk/drugged up loser who hates Michael, a fine person with a wonderful family".

'Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected, ' he continued.
