Trump Case Declared 'Dead' by Former Cohen Adviser

 May 18, 2024

Fox News reported that a former legal adviser expressed major doubts about the allegations made in the New York v. Trump trial.

Robert Costello, Michael Cohen's former adviser, criticizes the prosecutor's case against former President Donald Trump for its lack of substantial evidence.

Robert Costello's relationship with Michael Cohen as his legal adviser adds weight to his criticisms. He has recently been vocal in the media, questioning Cohen's reliability as a witness against Trump.

According to Costello, during a specific moment on the trial's cross-examination, Trump's defense appeared particularly effective, a point prominently featured on MSNBC.

Following the expiry of his attorney-client confidentiality commitment, Costello has been able to speak openly about the details of the case. He claims there were moments during his interactions with Michael Cohen when it was made clear that Cohen found no incriminating evidence against Donald Trump. This revelation casts substantial doubt on the strength of the evidence presented at trial.

Insights Into Michael Cohen's Psyche

In April 2018, a particularly grievous time for Michael Cohen, Robert Costello had a meeting with him where Cohen's severe distress was apparent. Cohen felt so overwhelmed by his legal troubles that he considered ending his life.

During this emotional turmoil, as relayed by Robert Costello, Michael Cohen vehemently denied having any damaging information on Donald Trump.

Costello vividly recalls Cohen's desperation:

They were so bad in his mind that he was willing to kill himself and so I kept on going back and suggesting to him, listen, Michael, if you have something truthful on Donald Trump, now is the time to cooperate.

Robert Costello’s insights into a discussion regarding the non-disclosure agreement involving Stormy Daniels add another layer to this complex case. According to him, Cohen took full responsibility for the NDA, claiming it was devised to shield Melania Trump from potential embarrassment, not due to directives from Donald Trump.

Critical Examination of Legal Proceedings

Costello is scathing in his criticism of the case's proceedings, especially highlighting his offer of exculpatory evidence to the Manhattan DA's team. He claims this evidence was essentially ignored, an action he considers negligent on the part of the prosecution. His frustrations with the judicial process were palpable during his various public statements.

Robert Costello expressed a strong opinion about the current state of the trial and its implications for the future. As per his statement on the Brian Kilmeade Show: "There's nothing that I know about this case that could give the prosecution more life. This case is dead. It was dead on arrival. It never should have been brought. This judge should have dismissed it."

So strong are his convictions, Robert Costello saw no downside to testifying. "So I don't think there's any downside with me [testifying]. I think there's only an upside, but it's a judgment call, you know?" This highlights a perspective that suggests potential pivotal disruptions in the trial's dynamics.

In conclusion, Robert Costello's comments and his detailed account of his former client, Michael Cohen’s actions, have stirred controversy and skepticism around the validity and motivations of the case against Donald Trump. It underscores a significant and contentious divide in public and legal opinion—one that extends beyond the courtroom and into the heart of political discourse.
