CNN’s Jim Acosta begs Michael Cohen to assure him this time the walls are really ‘closing in’ on Trump

CNN anchor Jim Acosta practically begged former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to assure him that the walls are finally “closing in” on the former president and that he’s going down following the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago.

On Saturday, Acosta’s desperation was on full display as he engaged in the leftist fantasy that former President Trump will be destroyed over various conspiracy theories even though he agreed with Cohen that he seems to have “9,000 lives” when it comes to scandals and legal woes.

As the interview with Cohen was winding down, Acosta asked the disgraced attorney whether this could be at long last the moment the media and Democrats have twistedly dreamed of for years. The left has beat an incessant drum proclaiming that Trump was doomed for a long, long time but those hopes have been dashed over and over again while Trump’s detractors rage and pull their hair out.

“Question I wanted to ask you more than anything else, because I’ve known you and I know you’ve known Donald Trump for, for years now, decades now,” Acosta stated. “Do you think this is it? You know, you hear it, you know, you hear the cliché the walls are closing in and, you know, time’s about up for Donald Trump and so on. I wonder what you think, Michael Cohen, knowing what you know about Donald Trump, how he seems to have 9,000 lives, not nine lives. Do you think that that time is running out for Trump?”

Cohen, ever hopeful of dragging his former client down into the mud with him, noted that there are so many investigations and allegedly so much evidence against Trump, that something has to eventually bear rotten fruit.

Then, he tossed out what many on the left have been attempting to do which is get Trump on something minor and throw the book at him as an excuse to lock him up. Enter the IRS, which is looking more and more like the left’s thuggish foot soldiers.

“I also don’t understand why we’re so fixated on getting him for everything,” Cohen asserted. “You don’t need to do that. Let’s get him on the simple stuff, the stuff we already know, which is tax evasion, misrepresentation to banks, you know, lying on personal financial statements. Like what they did to Al Capone! You don’t have to get him for X, Y, and Z. Let’s just get him on that, simply, to put him where he belongs.”

Although the notorious Chicago gangster known as Scarface during the Prohibition era became “Public Enemy No. 1” for numerous alleged crimes including murder, it was actually 22 counts of tax evasion that eventually landed him in jail for 11 years.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) accused the FBI and DOJ of using the strategy that was used against Capone as the plan to bring down Trump. Many are pointing out the same thing and Cohen brought it out in the open.

“The truth has come out, and the truth is never good for Donald Trump,” Cohen remarked, salivating over the possibility of finally getting Trump. “And in this specific case, yeah, he’s had 9,000 lives. But at the end of the day, you have all these people who have been brought in, who have provided testimony. You have documentary evidence, like the evidence I provided to the House oversight committee, that implicates Donald Trump in a multitude of illegal or, I should say, improper actions that he should be brought to court on.”

Cohen’s commentary seems to validate that the raid on Mar-a-Lago was indeed a political fishing expedition to find anything the left can to stop Trump from running in 2024 and to remove him as a political threat.
