Anderson Cooper remark jurors watching exchange ‘would think this guy’s [Cohen’s] making this up as he’s going along…’

An attorney representing Donald Trump dismantled former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on cross-examination Thursday, undermining the previous testimony and credibility of the prosecution’s key star witness in the former president’s New York City “hush money” trial.

The devastating takedown of Cohen by Trump lawyer Todd Blanche was so brutal, it prompted the likes of CNN’s Anderson Cooper to remark that jurors watching the exchange “would think this guy’s [Cohen’s] making this up as he’s going along or he’s making this particular story up.”

Anderson Cooper was left stunned by Trump’s attorney’s cross examination of Michael Cohen

Likewise, CNN legal analyst Elie Honig agreed Cohen’s “knees” were “chopped out” by Blanche.

Elsewhere during cross-examination, Cohen, who was convicted of perjury in 2018, admitted to Trump’s legal team he’d been coerced to plead guilty to tax evasion charges and falsifying bank statements out of fear prosecutors would indict his wife.

.@EliCrane_CEO: We all know why President Trump is here. They can’t beat him and everybody knows it.

He could have retired down to Florida and lived the American Dream. But he came back because he sees what’s happening in this country.
