Sacha Baron Cohen posts video teasing Trump

NEWS - @LannyDavis, the Clinton-era White House official, tells me he's been retained by @MichaelCohen212 as he prepares for a potential legal onslaught from prosecutors and a potential PR onslaught from Trump associates.

His experience section no longer says his job is "personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump".

Davis said in his statement that he had been following Cohen's case with "great interest" and in May, before his hiring, suggested Trump fire personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani after Giuliani claimed the president had reimbursed Cohen for the Daniels payment.

Cohen's pessimism about Trump potentially offering him a pardon comes amid questions about Cohen's mindset as he awaits a potential indictment in the ongoing criminal investigation in the Southern District of NY.

Of the celebrities that have verbally opposed Donald Trump as President, Sacha Baron Cohen is arguably among the loudest.

Cohen, who worked for Trump over the past decade, is the focus of an investigation into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud, wire fraud, illegal lobbying, or other crimes. However, they have said to allies that they will go after him only if Cohen strikes first and have indicated they want to avoid provoking him. Experts told Business Insider Petrillo was the kind of lawyer a person would choose if he or she were seeking to cut a deal with prosecutors.

As Trump speaks in the clip posted by the actor, a number of messages appear on the screen including, "He's back as you've never seen him before". This would explain why President Trump made his comments against Cohen, as he will regularly talk poorly about celebrities that don't approve of his decisions.

The change on Michael Cohen's Twitter and LinkedIn comes four days after he publicly cut ties to Trump in a rare interview.

"Being quiet is just not in his nature", the friend said, adding that Cohen has so far been going against his "natural instincts" by laying low.
