Witness Testifies Michael Cohen Was Bitter Trump Didn’t Offer Him Dream White House Job: ‘After Everything I’ve Done for That Guy!’

A witness in President Donald Trump’s “hush money” trial in New York has testified that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s star witness held a grudge against the defendant.

Michael Cohen, who previously served as Trump’s personal attorney in the run-up to the 2016 election, was bitter that the 45th president didn’t offer him his dream job in the White House, the witness told the court.

The witness was Keith Davidson, an attorney who represented former adult star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

The testimony spells doom for Cohen, who previously denied wanting a White House role while himself testifying during a Congressional hearing.

Davidson continued his testimony before the court on Thursday.

He said that Cohen had been hopeful that he would land a position as White House Chief of Staff or Attorney General in the lead-up to Trump’s first inauguration.

Davidson also recounted that Cohen had been upset he was “not going to Washington” following Trump’s win in 2016.

“Can you f—ing believe I’m not going to Washington after everything I’ve done for that guy?” he quoted Cohen saying during an angry rant about Trump.

“I can’t believe I’m not going to Washington… I’ve saved his a*s…,” Davidson recounted of a conversation he had had with Chohen in December following the 2016 election.

He described a “despondent and saddened Michael Cohen.”

Davidson testified that Cohen had called him while shopping in a California store memorably decorated with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme.

The “hush money” case focuses on Cohen allegedly paying Daniels $130,000.

Cohen, a known perjuror, claims the money was to quiet her claims of an alleged extramarital affair she had with Trump in 2006.

Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels.

Prosecutors allege that the Trump Organization reimbursed Cohen and fraudulently logged the payments as legal expenses.

However, there is no evidence that Trump ever authorized any such payments.

Prosecutors are working to prove that Trump falsified records with the intent to commit or conceal a second crime.

Such a crime is a felony.

Yet, DA Bragg has never revealed what “crime” he believes Trump was trying to conceal or commit.

Even if Trump had paid “hush money” to the women, it wouldn’t be a crime.

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

Davidson’s testimony that Cohen sought a White House job stands in stark contrast to what the former Trump attorney told Congress back in 2019.

“Sir, I was extremely proud to be personal attorney to the president of the United States of America,” Cohen told Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in 2019 amid a House Oversight Committee hearing.

“I did not want to go to the White House. I was offered jobs.”

“I can tell you a story of Mr. Trump reaming out Reince Priebus because I had not taken a job where Mr. Trump wanted me to, which is working with Don McGahn at the White House general counsel’s office,” he continued.

“What I said at the time — and I brought a lawyer in who produced a memo as to why I should not go in because there would be no attorney/client privilege.

“And in order to handle some of the matters that I talked about in my opening, that it would be best suited for me not to go in and that every president had a personal attorney.”

“I did not want to go to the White House,” Cohen added later in his testimony to Congress.

“I retained, I brought an attorney in, and I sat with Mr. Trump, with him for well over an hour, explaining the importance of having a personal attorney, that every president has had one in order to handle matters like the matters I was dealing with.”

Cohen’s comments came after he pleaded guilty to five counts of willful tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a bank, one count of causing an unlawful campaign contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution in 2018.

He again pleaded guilty in November of that same year to lying to Congress about testimony regarding the work he had done on a project to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison and has since been released.

The House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner and House Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik are currently demanding the Justice Department to investigate Cohen.

They allege that he committed perjury and “knowingly” made false statements while testifying before Congress in 2019.

Turner and Stefanik argue that Cohen is being used as the prosecution’s “star witness” in the NY v. Trump case, despite his previous conviction.

Meanwhile, President Trump has slammed the trial as a “scam” and “hoax” promoted by the Biden administration the Democrats.

He correctly argues that the case is being overseen by a “conflicted judge.”

As Slay News reported, Judge Juan Merchan is a Biden donor with family ties to high-profile Democrat campaigns.

“This is a hoax,” Trump said outside the courtroom on Tuesday morning.

“This is a judge who is conflicted — badly, badly, badly conflicted.

“I’ve never seen a judge so conflicted and giving us virtually no rulings.”

“I’m going to sit in the freezing cold icebox for eight hours, nine hours or so.

“They took me off the campaign trail.

“But the good news is my poll numbers are the highest it’s ever been.

“So, at least we’re getting the word out,” Trump said.

“And everybody knows this trial is a scam. It’s a scam.

“The judge should be recused; that he should recuse himself today, he should recuse himself today.

“And maybe he will.”
