Turley: Michael Cohen’s Anti-Trump Stance Has Paid for Him on GoFundMe; It’s Sold Like ‘Hot Cakes’

‘We have this weird type of auction among potential witnesses, both pro and anti-Trump, for people to essentially contribute to their testimony’

EXCERPT:

DOOCY: “You know, a lot of people said why does Michael Cohen need a GoFundMe page? And you look at some of the things that’s been happening with these GoFundMe pages whether it’s Mr. Cohen or Peter Strzok or James Comey, there seems to be a thread to them, right?”
TURLEY: “Yeah. I wrote a piece in the hill because it’s a strange evolution of the role of this site. GoFundMe has become a site where you can essentially purchase testimony. That people go out there and they really ramp up their expected testimony.”
DOOCY: “What do you mean purchase testimony?”
TURLEY: “Well it's because what happens, people like Michael Cohen couldn’t get a dime from anyone on the street when he was still saying he would take a bullet for the president. Then suddenly he started a promise that he could bag the president and they rolled out a GoFundMe site and they got hundreds of thousands of dollars. We have this weird type of auction among potential witnesses, both pro and anti-Trump, for people to essentially contribute to their testimony. And it’s a little unnerving for an attorney because people could actually change their testimony to give them more of a market position. And for Michael Cohen, he's tried to position himself as far as he can on the anti-Trump site, and it has paid off, it has sold like hot cakes. People have gone to GoFundMe and said I like that stuff, and they have given him a lot of money.”
