Former President Trump on Saturday suggested that the Manhattan DA was tricked by “Star” witness Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer who was disbarred after pleading guilty in 2018 to multiple felony charges, including 5 counts of tax evasion, lying to a financial institution, lying to congress, and two campaign finance violations.
