Michael Cohen is introduced to karmic justice with one perfectly worded tweet.
NBC News is reporting that Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, has reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors, adding that: “The deal could have significant implications for Trump, since any witness cooperation deal could well extend to the Mueller investigation.”
According to NBC:
Cohen is expected to plead guilty to charges related to bank fraud, tax fraud and a campaign finance violation, stemming from a federal investigation in New York. He is scheduled to appear in federal court in Manhattan at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
The plea could have significant implications for Trump, who has blasted Cohen ever since Cohen and his attorney, old Clinton hand Lanny Davis, began signaling this summer that Cohen might cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
Brian Krassenstein, a reported for The Hill, was quick to respond – reminding Cohen of a tweet he posted back in 2015 aimed at Hillary Clinton.
It seems karmic justice has just taken a huge bite out of Cohen’s @ss.
“To celebrate the Plea Agreement, which likely includes prison time for Michael Cohen, I thought it would be fun to reflect on this message Cohen Tweeted to Hillary Clinton on 12/19/15: ‘When you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!‘” he tweeted.

Even better, this isn’t the first time that tweet came back to haunt Cohen.
The Washington Post reported on that tweet back in April of this year, shortly after the FBI raided Cohen’s office, home and hotel room.
The Washington Post had this to say at the time:
This particular tweet, from 2015 when Trump was campaigning against Hillary Clinton for president (and suggesting that he would jail her if he won), was resurrected… because of its specific reference to fraud. Cohen is now being investigated for possible bank and wire fraud, along with campaign finance violations…
“Uh oh, this tweet didn’t age well,” a former director of the Office of Government Ethics, Walter Shaub, wrote in reply. “Talk about irony.”
The Washington Post added a tweet from former Clinton campaigner, Jack Miller, who weighed in on the “schadenfreude,” a German word denoting pleasure derived by someone from another person’s misfortune.
You: currently being raided by the FBI in three separate locations
