Ex-Trump lawyer left out of pardons despite cooperating with authorities says ‘system is broken’
Michael Cohen had predicted in 2019 that Trump will not leave the White House peacefully if he is voted out in the elections
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former attorney and "fixer" on Wednesday, said the criminal justice system was broken after pardons were announced for the outgoing president's allies and friends who never worked with any agency other than himself.
“What happened tonight shows how broken the entire criminal justice system is. Even though I and my family were threatened by [POTUS] [Donald Trump], I still worked with a dozen federal / state agencies, millers, Congress ... and all of these criminals receive pardons. That's wrong! ”Tweeted Mr. Cohen.

His outburst comes soon after former campaign advisors to Mr Trump, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, were pardoned along with Charles Kushner, father of the president's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner. Last month, Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn was excused for lying to the FBI.
Among them, Messrs Stone and Manafort were charged with Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in US politics. They did not cooperate with the special adviser during the investigation.
In 2018, Mr. Cohen was accused by Mr. Müller's team of lied about a real estate project in Russia and allegedly collaborated with various authorities during the investigation.
Mr Cohen pleaded guilty to lied to congressional and campaign finance violations, following which he was sentenced to three years in prison until November 2021. However, at the beginning of May of this year, he was sentenced to death for the coronavirus pandemic.
Last year, Mr Cohen predicted that if Mr Trump is elected from office, he will not go out peacefully - a scenario that is unfolding now that the president has not yet conceded the race despite the electoral college confirming Joe Biden as the winner Has .
The former Trump attorney had also told a congressional committee that Mr Trump had inflated all of his wealth when it was serving his purposes and dumped it to lower his property taxes.
In an interview published Monday, Mr Cohen said Mr Trump's motives for continuing to deny the election results stem from two reasons - his ego and his money.
