In an interview on Good Morning America today, Keith Davidson, the attorney who negotiated with Michael Cohen over Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels hush money payments, revealed what just might be one of the real reasons Cohen is now trying to take President Trump down.
Davidson claims that Michael Cohen fully expected a high ranking position in the Trump administration and was furious when the expected White House job offer never materialized, as the Daily Mail reports:
‘He confided in me that he was beside himself. In his words, he said “can you f*****g believe it? I just can’t f*****g believe it. Can you f*****g believe that after everything I’ve done for him, he’s not taking me to Washington?”
‘He thought it was a personal embarrassment. He felt rejected,’ Davidson said.
He said the settlement and accompanying non-disclosure agreement was supposed to be ‘the easiest deal in the history of man’ and that it was prompted by the release of the infamous Access Hollywood tape where Trump was recorded saying ‘grab them by the p***y’.
While the negotiations had been going on ‘for months’, Davidson said the tape sped things along.
He did, you know, confide in me and said “can you f*****g believe it. That son of a b***h never paid me back”
The Access Hollywood tape was the motivating factor in this case and it defeats the argument that this was done for purely personal reason and that this was in fact done for political reasons because after the Access Hollywood tape, something like this could be the straw that broke the camel’s back,’ he said.
Watch as Keith Davidson explains what might be the real reason Michael Cohen turned on President Trump:

Michael Cohen is in a world of hurt:
.@RepMikeTurner “The only time that Michael Cohen told the truth is when he pled that he is guilty.” Also when he said no collusion and I did not tell him to lie!”

Some unsolicited advice to @MichaelCohen212: you went under oath, he didn’t. Just say that. https://t.co/ATAWGaEKuc

Before Michael Cohen’s testimony last week, he and Adam Schiff met for TEN hours. But last Sunday, Schiff told CBS his only contact with Cohen was to “invite him to testify” and “allay concerns.”
Really? That took 10 hours?
We need answers. Did Democrats lead the witness?
