Trump accuses NYT reporter of trying 'to destroy Michael Cohen' so he'll talk to the feds

Stormy Daniels' Lawyer Says He Thinks There Are

Trump appeared to be angered by a front-page Times story Saturday that examined his relationship with Cohen, whose office was raided by federal authorities last week.

The newspaper's communications Twitter account said: "We are extremely proud of @maggieNYT, who is a part of a team that just won a Pulitzer Prize".

Cohen, who for months been in the focus of national attention for allegedly paying porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about the alleged sexual encounter with Trump, is now the subject of a federal investigation.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, center, leaves federal court following a hearing Monday, April 16, 2018, in NY.

Mr. Trump, in that a set of tweets on Saturday afternoon, detained " The Times plus one of those reporters who wrote that the post, Maggie Haberman, of "moving away from their way to ruin Michael Cohen along with his relationship with me in the hope he'll 'flip. He didn't substantiate those claims.

He said: "Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble, I don't see Michael doing that despite the terrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!". The story cited other former Trump campaign aides, including Sam Nunberg and Roger Stone, as saying Trump has long treated Cohen abusively by insulting him and threatening to fire him.

After that, the original tweets were pulled down momentarily, while Haberman's name was corrected. "Here's the story that seems to have touched a nerve", she tweeted.

It's not the first time Mr. Trump has singled out Haberman.

Of course, his claim that he has "nothing to do with" Haberman and doesn't speak with her is easily disprovable.

The president spent yesterday morning at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, while his wife flew to Houston to attend the funeral of former first lady Barbara Bush. "The highest elected official in the United States shouldn't be using his platform to go after individual reporters or to promote conspiracy theories about reporters inventing sources". Trump has known Haberman for years since he was a private developer in NY. They're trying to make him look like Paul Manafort.

In Manila in November, Mr. Trump laughed when the Philippines' dictator-like President Rodrigo Duterte called journalists "spies".

The FBI raid came as special counsel Robert Mueller's probe intensifies its focus on the president's inner circle, as it looks into links between his campaign and Russian Federation and possible obstruction of justice.
