Donald Trump's ex-personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen suggested Mary Trump could turn her uncle's "ridiculous” lawsuit around by asking him to take a deposition.

The New York Times and three reporters sued the former president for $100 million. They investigated his tax records.

Cohen stated that if she were Mary Trump's lawyer, she would say "Don't fight it, just answer the complaint, look for depositions and let's search for discovery," while appearing on MSNBC Saturday.

"Because one fact is certain, and I've read dozens upon dozens of Donald Trump depositions," he said. It doesn't make sense. Everything is circular."

Michael Cohen stated that he is currently involved in a lawsuit against Trump Organization. He has also requested depositions from Trump's lawyers, which he refused.

They insist that he not sit for depositions, because he doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Cohen stated that even if it does deal with him, he is completely clueless and he lies so often, he can't even recall the lies he told yesterday."

Michael Cohen is currently in house arrest while he finishes his three-year sentence. He pleaded guilty to several felonies back in 2018.

Trump's lawsuit against Mary Trump revolves around The New York Times' 18-month-long investigation of Trump's finances. It won a Pulitzer Prize.

The lawsuit claims that Mary Trump was convinced by the newspaper to "smuggle records from her attorney's office to turn them over to The Times," in violation of a confidentiality agreement.
