Michael Cohen Is Said to Have Plans to Go Negative on Trump During Testimony

Michael Cohen Is Said to Have Plans to Go Negative on Trump During Testimony Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, is planning on portraying his onetime client in starkly negative terms when he testifies Wednesday before a House committee, and on describing what he says was Mr. Trump’s use of racist language, lies about his wealth and possible criminal conduct.

Abby Huntsman, who had co-hosted “Fox & Friends” before moving over to ABC’s “The View,” said Monday that “there are many reasons to believe” the New Yorker report is accurate, adding that it could be a “real problem for Fox.”

“And it’s a problem for the journalists that work there that want to break these stories,” she said. “That is why they’re there ― to do their job.”

Huntsman, who labored on both the news and opinion sides of Fox News (and early worked for HuffPost), defended the integrity of the network’s journalists and urged viewers to distinguish between its objective and subjective programming.

“If you’re going to turn on Sean Hannity at night, you have to know that you’re going to get probably stuff supporting Trump,” she said. “That’s his take. But the news side of Fox they take very, very seriously there and there are, as we always say, wonderful people that work there.”

According to The New Yorker’s deep-dive report into the relationship between the president and Fox News, which was written by Jane Mayer, then-FoxNews.com reporter Diana Falzone uncovered evidence in 2016 of Trump’s past sexual relationship with Daniels, a porn actress. Through emails she’d obtained between Trump and his then-personal attorney Michael Cohen, Falzone allegedly also found proof of a hush-money deal in the works.

But the story stalled, passed from editor to editor. Ken LaCorte, who was running the website at the time, told Falzone to “just let it go” because Fox chairman Rupert Murdoch “wants Donald Trump to win” the election, according to the New Yorker report.

LaCorte denied The New Yorker’s account. In January 2018, in response to a story by CNN’s Oliver Darcy that revealed the spiking of Falzone’s story, LaCorte told Mediaite that he killed it because it was lacking evidence and he therefore wasn’t “comfortable publishing” it.

While Daniels has spoken about her alleged relationship with Trump for many months, matters worsened for the president last week when Cohen testified about the hush money before the House oversight committee, producing a copy of a check bearing Trump’s signature.
