In fi­nal snub to Prez, Co­hen goes Demo­crat

New York Daily News - - NEWS - Chris Sommerfeldt

Michael Co­hen has been caught in the blue wave.

The dis­il­lu­sioned former fixer to Pres­i­dent Trump reg­is­tered as a Demo­crat on Thurs­day, his le­gal team an­nounced, putting the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin of the two men’s crum­bling re­la­tion­ship.

The ex-Trump at­tor­ney, who un­til June was the Repub­li­can Party’s deputy fi­nance chair­man, made the switch at the state board of elec­tion in Al­bany, a spokes­woman told the Daily News.

Co­hen’s move was first re­ported by Ax­ios.

“To­day, (Co­hen) re­turned to the Demo­cratic Party, an­other step in his jour­ney,” at­tor­ney Lanny Davis tweeted. “Putting fam­ily and coun­try first — dis­tanc­ing him­self from the val­ues of the cur­rent Ad­min.”

Davis added, “Can’t wait for his first in­ter­view!”

Co­hen doesn’t have any in­ter­views lined up, but a per­son fa­mil­iar with the mat­ter told The News he plans to open up “at the right time.”

A White House spokes­woman did not re­turn a re­quest for com­ment.
