Michael Cohen predicted Monday night that charges would soon be brought against Trump based on recent moves by the Manhattan Attorney’s Office.
In an interview with MSNBC’s Joy Reid, Cohen pointed out that Manhattan DA Cy Vance recently recruited a federal attorney. Mark F. Pomerantz, who specializes in organized crime to join the Trump investigation.
“You haven’t brought [Pomerantz] so as not to bring charges, ”Cohen said. “I suspect the indictment will likely be sooner rather than later.”

In my opinion, Cy Vance, being politically wise, has not brought in people like Mark Pomerantz, an incredibly well-known and prolific attorney when it comes to major financial crimes as well as complex financial crimes. You didn’t get him not to bring charges, and I suspect the charges will likely come sooner rather than later.
Trump’s legal problems continue to grow
Over the past week, Donald Trump’s legal problems continued to grow. The Manhattan Attorney’s Office hired Mark Pomerantz and summoned the New York Tax Commission.
To add gasoline to the former president’s legal fire, the Supreme Court ruled Monday that Trump’s tax returns can be turned over to a New York attorney.
Some Republicans cheer Trump on becoming president again in 2024, but it’s more likely he’ll be too busy not to go to jail than to return to the White House.
