Trump Lawyer: I Can’t Vote For Trump Because I’m A Registered Democrat
Michael Cohen, special counsel to Donald Trump and one of his most vehement supporters in the press, is not going to vote for him in New York’s primary election.
“No, I am not voting in the primary; I’m a registered Democrat,” Cohen said on CNN when asked if he thinks the head of the RNC should resign.
The Hill reports:
Two of Trump’s children — Ivanka, 34, and Eric, 32 — acknowledged this week that they didn’t register as Republicans in time to vote in Tuesday’s closed primary in New York, despite months of campaigning for their father.While new voters in New York had up until last month to register to vote in the primary, registered voters had to file to change their party registration by Oct. 9 — six months ago — to cast a vote in the primary.Ivanka, who said she was a registered independent because she wanted flexibility in supporting candidates, ripped the “onerous” rules in New York, while Eric described the flap as coming in the context of the family’s first “foray into politics,” saying that “we didn’t realize how the whole system worked.”For his part, Donald Trump said his children feel “very, very guilty.”Democrats have also expressed frustration with the early deadline to change party affiliation, with the wife of Democratic candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has similarly targeted independent voters, bemoaning such hurdles.“Those kinds of things seem silly. We’re bringing a lot more people into the party, and the party is shutting the door on them,” Jane Sanders told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Thursday.
