Trump lays into 'New York Times' over story questioning Michael Cohen's loyalty

Trump lays into 'New York Times' over story questioning Michael Cohen's loyalty

Things began when Trump attacked New York TimesWhite House correspondent Maggie Haberman.

"Most people will flip if the Government lets them out of trouble", tweeted Trump, "even if it means lying or making up stories. Sorry, I don't see Michael doing that despite the disgusting Witch Hunt and the dishonest media!" he continued. In a series of tweets this morning, Trump called Cohen "a fine person with a wonderful family".

In several morning tweets, Trump also lashed out against the Times over its coverage of the investigation.

Meanwhile, four of the five living former presidents, including Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George Bush, were expected to join about 1,500 other guests in Houston to pay their respects at the funeral service for Barbara Bush, who died on Tuesday at the age of 92.

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.

Earlier on Tuesday, Syrian state media falsely reported that members of the world's chemical weapons watchdog had entered Douma. Saudi Arabia is also a member of the USA -led coalition battling IS militants.

"One B, sir (or Dan?)", she said.

In the tweets, sent shortly after he arrived at one of his Florida golf courses, Trump accused the newspaper of using "non-existent "sources" in a Friday story about the relationship between Trump and Cohen, who has said he would "take a bullet" for his boss. "The person replied, 'He's abusive to everybody'". Though he infrequently criticizes reporters by name, it wasn't the very first time he has singled out Ms. Haberman, who had been part of a crew which was granted a Pulitzer Prize last week due to the reports about the Russian Federation investigation.

Though Cohen has repeatedly expressed undying loyalty to Trump, the president's lawyers and advisers acknowledge that there is a strong chance he will turn state's witness. The Times' communication department wrote on Twitter that the paper is "extremely proud" of Haberman and that it stands by the story.

As for Cohen, Avenatti said, "Ultimately, the American people will learn that the basis for the warrants was the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney's office had reason to believe that Michael Cohen was undertaking efforts to destroy documents".

The post included a link to the story and a screenshot of Trump's first tweet with the misspelling. Trump has known Haberman for years since he was a private developer in NY.
