    This is how the FBI took down the Mob, which extensively used lawyers to try to shield their dealings.

    If he does decide to cooperate with Mueller - all hell is going to break lose at the WH at level probably never seen before (and that's saying something).

    Every time I think I've seen it all, along comes another day. I'm just numb at this point, and wouldn't surprise me a bit to see a preemptive pardon.

    Some are already floating that "theory"....but would not "protect" Cohen in NY.

    Dunno - Was reading the other day that NY was trying to change their law. Apparently at present there's a loophole of some sort that protects a presidential pardon due to "double jeopardy".

    However, even if they don't get the law changed, NY State could come after Cohen for RELATED crimes .. there shouldn't be any shortage of those.

    Now the "preemptive pardon" concept is another gray area. I don't THINK Trump can pardon him before he is charged with at least one crime.

    I think the only thing that's probably for sure is Cohen will be changing lawyers.

    If he's smart, he'd change his client.
