Cohen is now a Democrat!

Michael Cohen, President Trump's former attorney who until June served as the Republican Party’s deputy finance chair, today changed his party registration from Republican to Democrat, according to a knowledgeable source.

Between the lines: Cohen went online around noon to the Albany-based New York State board of elections to make the change, according to the source. The move fits a pattern of Cohen publicly breaking from the man for whom he once said he’d take “a bullet.”

The guy has been such a manipulator for so long that he's probably gamed out the odds of this as working in his favor somehow. But I suspect that Mueller presented Cohen with a redemption narrative and that that has become a part of the fabric of the story Cohen tells himself about what he is doing. In a strange way, this may be an act of contrition as much as defiance.

He was only a Republican for about 18 months. Probably a requirement to for the finance chair job.

Cohen had been a registered Democrat for years until changing his registration in March 2017. “It took a great man to get me to the make the switch,” Cohen said at the time on Twitter, referring to Trump.

I'll wait 10 years to see how much he donates to Democrats to start to dismantle what he helped create.

As valid as the Democratic narrative you were pushing..

The irony of this entire thread is quite surreal....

Wasn’t Trump a registered Democrat before he decided to run for el presidente?

Think he'll be out in 10 years? With all the tax fraud the Trumps have done, Cohen has to be part of that conspiracy.

It depends on how much dirt he can produce that leads to prosecution of his client(s) and other major criminals.
