Hi Rudy, a former Trump attorney knows how you feel. Michael Cohen’s tweet Thursday morning was in reaction to a Washington Post report that President Trump had told his aides to stop paying his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, after weeks of futile efforts to overturn the 2020 election results.

Sources told CNN, however, that it was not immediately clear whether Trump took his instructions seriously or simply lashed out after being indicted a second time. The president has been blaming his longtime lawyer and others for his latest spiral, though he has not accepted any responsibility in public or private, the sources said. A senior Trump adviser took to Twitter TWTR, -1.52% in an apparent attempt to reject the reports, but did not deny them either. As for impeachment, the Senate will soon address the question of whether to remove the president and bar him from holding federal office in the future. Two-thirds would have to vote to remove him, and he would have to pass a separate resolution to remove him from federal office.
