So the New York Times is reporting that one of Michael Cohen’s most important business partners, Evgeny A. Freidman, has agreed to cooperate with Robert Mueller. In other words, he’s flipped.
What does that mean? It means that the man who probably knows more about where Cohen left the straight and narrow is now testifying against him. It also means that, unless Cohen also flips, there’s an awfully good chance that he will go to jail for a very long time. In fact, short of divine intervention, it is hard to see how he won’t be sporting prison orange for quite a while.
Now, the question everyone is asking is how much masochism does Cohen possess? Will he continue to insist that he’d take a bullet for Trump, particularly since Trump doesn’t seem to be doing much in return for him, or will he also turn against his master and commander?
Oh, and one more thing.
Evgeny A. Freidman? He’s Russian.
Interesting coincidence, isn’t it?
