President Trump on Saturday attacked The New York Times for its reporting on his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and expressed confidence Cohen will remain loyal to him while under federal investigation. 

“The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Haberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will ‘flip,’ ” Trump tweeted. {mosads}

“Sorry, I don’t see Michael doing that despite the horrible Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!” he added.



Trump initially misspelled Haberman’s last name, but later retweeted the thread with the correct spelling. 

Trump, who has spoken with Haberman on the record for multiple stories in the past, appeared to be referencing a New York Times report on Friday that the president’s legal team is bracing for Cohen to cooperate with prosecutors.

The Times report provided numerous examples from aides both on and off the record who described Trump’s relationship with Cohen as taking him for granted.

Cohen is reportedly under investigation for bank fraud and campaign finance law violations.

The FBI raided Cohen’s office, hotel room and home earlier this month and reportedly seized documents related to his payment of two women who claim they each had an affair with Trump, as well as communications between Cohen and Trump.
