New Sacha Baron Cohen Comedy Interview Series in the Works at Showtime

Sacha Baron Cohen

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former personal attorney and loyal fixer, scrubbed all mentions of Trump from his Twitter bio on Independence Day.

His remarks fanned speculation about whether Cohen possesses incriminating material on President Trump and whether he will "flip" on his former boss, with remarks sharply at odds with a past declaration that he would "take a bullet for the president".

Davis joins Guy Petrillo, a former federal prosecutor in NY, who is also representing Cohen.

Davis said in a statement Thursday: "Like most of America, I have been following the matter regarding Michael Cohen with great interest". Then I read his words published on July 2, and I recognized his sincerity. Regardless of the truth, Trump heavily criticized Cohen after the interview, and it seems that criticism might have sparked inspiration for Cohen's new project.

Way back in 2003, Cohen interviewed Trump while in character as Ali G. Trump, as expected, later tried to get away with a lie about being "the only person' to have ever immediately walked out of a Da Ali G Show interview". Cohen previously fired the attorneys that had been representing him-another sign he could be considering a change in tack.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump's outside counsel, told Business Insider that Cohen "should have the attorneys who he has the most confidence in". Davis is the author of "The Unmaking of the President 2016", in which he questions the legitimacy of Trump's election and raises the possibility of removing Trump from office for "mental impairment". Cohen hasn't commented further since he released the video on July 4, but we'll be watching his social media channels carefully to see just what craziness is in store for us.

"He claims he saw through the interview", Cohen said.

Cohen is under criminal investigation for bank fraud and campaign finance violations.

In a recent interview, he signaled that he may be willing to cooperate with special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

When Mike Pompeo meets Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang, he will reportedly attempt to smooth a path towards denuclearisation with a gift that playfully references a low point in relations between the North Korean leader and Donald Trump: a CD of Elton John's Rocket Man.

People on Twitter are READY for the (very real) possibility of Cohen testifying against Trump.
