President Trump’s lawyer, Jay Goldberg, had a grim joke about Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. It was raw prison humor, but it had a message for the President.

Goldberg says he’s thinks Cohen will talk to prosecutors because he’s worried about getting raped in prison.

Avenatti is now alleging that he has evidence of bank fraud involving Michael Cohen, which he has almost certainly shared with the F.B.I. And the F.B.I. may soon respond in kind: “We expect to have access to …..
