Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, is anticipated to be a key witness for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg in the ex-president’s ‘hush money’ case. However, a recent report suggests that Cohen may be causing difficulties for the prosecutors.

As he gears up to testify, Cohen, the former Trump fixer responsible for arranging a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election, presents a series of challenges for the prosecution.

In addition to his social media activity, Cohen has been addressing Trump and the trial in his nightly TikTok livestreams, making sarcastic comments like “Trump 2024? More like Trump 20-24 years.” Reports suggest that Cohen is profiting from these livestreams.

McAuliffe pointed out that Cohen’s history of statements about Trump and his “eccentric publicity…
