Fox News contributor Andrew McCarthy took issue with President Donald Trump’s word choice this weekend when he called his former fixer, Michael Cohen, a “rat.”
Sir, in mobster lingo, a ‘rat’ is a witness who tells prosecutors real incriminating info. Perhaps a different word? Searches of lawyer’s offices common enough that DOJ has a procedure for them. Here it yielded evidence of crimes you said he should be jailed for. You should stop. https://t.co/EV1txBYrhz

Trump tweeted incessantly about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, among other things, this weekend and has ramped up the attacks on Cohen who was sentenced to three years in jail last week.
