President Donald Trump this morning answered a reported who asked about his personal attorney, Michael Cohen by totally mocking the question.
ABC News’s Jonathan Karl asked Trump if he would consider pardoning Cohen. Trump’s response? “Stupid question!” Then, he tried to move to another subject.

Why would Mr Karl jump to the conclusion Cohen is guilty?

Of course, Cohen hasn’t even been charged, though his attorney said at a hearing last week in a lawsuit by Stormy Daniels that he expects an indictment could come within 90 days.
