President Trump said, while most people will flip if the government offers them a deal, but he doesn't see his lawyer doing that, despite the terrible witch hunt and the dishonest media.
Trump's tweet comes a week after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office, home and hotel room, resulting in the seizure of privileged communications between Cohen and his clients, said Stephen Ryan, a lawyer for Cohen, in a statement.
Asked whether the president himself was anxious, the staffer added that "He's anxious about attorney client privilege" and said Cohen had likely acted as more of an informal adviser than a lawyer.
Nunberg told CNN's Abby Phillip: "I have no idea who POTUS is talking about so I have no response". Trump tweeted that he would watch from Florida. Some of the documents seized from him reportedly relate to a payment of Dollars 130,000 that Cohen admits making to the porn star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had a one-night stand with Trump a decade ago.
Amid growing speculation that the White House was concerned Cohen could be persuaded to cooperate with federal prosecutors, NBC News spoke to five sources close to Cohen and Trump this week.
"Michael is a businessman for his own account/lawyer who I have always liked & respected", Trump continued. "The person replied, 'He's abusive to everybody'".

The Pulitzer was awarded jointly with the Washington Post for "deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation's understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connections to the Trump campaign, the president-elect's transition team and his eventual administration".
Saturday brought the latest tweet storm from President Donald Trump, which presumably happened en route to Mar-a-Lagoor some other golf course.
His remarks also served as an indication of how much the situation involving his lawyer Michael Cohen appears to be frustrating Mr. Trump.
In the tweets, Trump bashes the sources of the story and praises Cohen's loyalty.
