Only corrupt SCOTUS would take Trump’s Mar-a-Lago case

  • Michael Cohen says SCOTUS will expose its corruption if it takes up Trump’s case.
  • Trump asked SCOTUS to intervene in his dispute with the FBI over documents seized at Mar-a-Lago.
  • Cohen added that if the Supreme Court intervenes, the judges on the bench “would have to leave.”

Michael Cohen, who was once Donald Trump’s lawyer and fixer, believes the Supreme Court would expose its corruption if it got involved in the former president’s legal battle with the FBI over top-secret documents found in Mar -a-Lago.

Cohen commented in a TikTok video on Tuesday on Trump’s request for the Supreme Court to intervene in his dispute with the FBI over the seizure of more than 11,000 records from Mar-a-Lago. The remarks came after the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit reversed Judge Aileen Cannon’s decision to include approximately 100 classified documents in the master’s special examination, suspending their use in the investigation. criminal.

Trump is now trying to get the Supreme Court to keep those documents under the control of the special master.

“Delay, delay, delay, that’s what he’s going to do,” Cohen said, referring to Trump. “That’s exactly what he does in every case. Now he’s going to drag him as far as he can.”

In September, Cohen admitted he had helped Trump create a “playbook” for dealing with legal issues, which included delaying prosecution as a tactic to avoid prosecution.

Cohen said Trump’s Supreme Court request was his “only decision,” but also weighed in on what might happen with the court’s decision.

“If the Supreme Court ends up listening to this bullshit, the fact that this fucking asshole may have top secret documents, which is in violation of the Presidential Archives Act, as well as the National Archives with their multiple subpoenas, requests, etc. for the return of documents, we will know that this fucking Supreme Court is corrupt,” Cohen said on Tuesday.

He added that if the Supreme Court steps in and takes Trump’s side, all the justices in the seat “would have to leave.”

A spokesperson for Trump’s post-presidential office did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

The Justice Department is investigating whether Trump violated any of three federal laws — including the Espionage Act — by keeping classified documents at his Florida residence.

In 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes, including tax evasion, campaign finance violations and bank fraud. It was sentenced in december that year to three years in prison and was disbarred in February 2019 by the New York Supreme Court.

Since his release, Cohen has become an outspoken critic of Trump and has happily weighed in on the former president’s many legal issues. In September, he also announced that he would be selling t-shirts featuring Trump behind bars to “celebrate the fall of the Mussolini mango.”
