Michael Cohen, former attorney to Donald Trump, has made a statement regarding the ex-president’s reaction to the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigations into his conduct. According to Cohen, Trump has hit the panic button as the investigations appear to be gaining momentum.
The DOJ is investigating two separate incidents involving Trump. The first is the accusation that he sought to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. The second is the suspicion that he illegally removed classified documents when leaving the White House in January 2021, following a search at his Mar-a-Lago residence the previous summer.
In the latest developments in the case, Special counsel Jack Smith has issued subpoenas to former Vice President Mike Pence and former national security advisor Robert O’Brien. In addition to this, Trump’s legal team has handed over a laptop belonging to one of his aides, which contains a copy of a classified document. These events have further increased the intensity of the DOJ investigations into Trump’s conduct
