In a recent interview with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen shared his thoughts on Walt Nauta, the valet to former President Donald Trump who has been charged in a case involving classified and sensitive documents. Cohen warned Nauta against believing that Trump would protect him if he remained loyal and stated that he should learn from Cohen’s own experiences and those of other former Trump allies who have been left unsupported by the former president.
Cohen expressed his belief that Nauta, being a staunch supporter of Trump, naively thinks that Trump would safeguard him and avoid throwing him “under the bus.” However, Cohen advised Nauta to understand that Trump cannot be trusted to protect his associates. Nauta recently pleaded not guilty to six charges related to the documents case, including obstruction of justice.
Drawing from examples such as Stewart Rhodes, the founder of the Oath Keepers, who was sentenced to 18 years in prison for seditious conspiracy in connection with the January 6, 2021, insurrection, Cohen questioned what happened to Trump’s promises of taking care of his allies and paying their legal fees. He suggested that Nauta should consider the potential benefits of providing information voluntarily or through a subpoena, as ultimately, he will likely have to provide it to the government.
Nauta’s involvement in the case revolves around security camera footage at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach, Florida, showing him moving boxes in and out of a storage room. Prosecutors have accused Nauta of collaborating with Trump to keep these boxes, which contained classified and sensitive documents that should have been handed over to government record-keepers, away from investigators and former Trump attorney Evan Corcoran. Corcoran had visited Mar-a-Lago to retrieve the documents in response to a subpoena from the Justice Department.
