Former Trump Attorney Michael Cohen has reportedly resigned from an RNC Committee position.
President Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has reportedly resigned from his position on the Republican National Committee's (RNC) finance committee.
ABC News reported on Wednesday that Cohen, who is under criminal investigation, resigned from his post as deputy finance chair, citing special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as one reason for his exit.
"This important role requires the full time attention and dedication of each member. Given the ongoing Mueller and [U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York] investigations, that simply is impossible for me to do," he wrote, according to ABC.
Cohen also slammed President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy that separates families at the U.S.-Mexico border.
"As the son of a Polish holocaust survivor, the images and sounds of this family separation policy is heart wrenching," Cohen wrote. "While I strongly support measures that will secure our porous borders, children should never be used as bargaining chips."
ABC notes that Cohen hired New York lawyer Guy Petrillo on Tuesday to represent him in the federal investigation into his business dealings.
That was an unexpected move on Cohen’s part. What are your thoughts? Please share and comment.
