"I don’t know if you’re familiar with Curtis Jackson, the musician 50 Cent, have you heard of him," Melber asked Donald Trump's former attorney Jay Goldberg, on his show, The Beat With Ari Melber. "He’s a pretty prominent musician and when we were covering this he spoke about this and he agreed with you, that the nature of Michael Cohen, that who he is would lead to him cutting a deal."
At that moment, Melber cut to an old clip of 50 Cent talking about Trump's other former lawyer, Cohen, who recently pled guilty to eight counts of campaign finance violations, tax fraud, and bank fraud. Cohen is also the same lawyer who allegedly paid off Stormy Daniels.
"He like Trump. Michael like Trump. But he don’t like him enough to go through that for him," explained 50, on whether or not Cohen would do time in prison for Donald Trump in the April video used in Melber's latest segment. "He ain’t from the neighborhood."
The video came out shortly after the FBI raided Cohen's office looking for evidence that could incriminate Trump—or Cohen. With Cohen's latest guilty plea, there's a chance he might take the downfall.
By the way, Goldberg said he didn't know of 50. Somebody get him Get Rich or Die Tryin' stat.
