Yeah, this is going to piss Adolph Twitler off big time.

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former attorney who until June served as the Republican Party’s deputy finance chair, today changed his party registration from Republican to Democrat, according to a knowledgeable source.
The move fits a pattern of Cohen publicly breaking from the man for whom he once said he’d take “a bullet.” Cohen went online around noon to the Albany-based New York State Board of Elections to make the change, according to the source.
Keep in mind that Cohen has been signaling his break with Trump for months now, after Trump didn’t lift a finger to defend him from charges of campaign finance violations over Cohen’s payments of hush money to keep two women quiet about their affairs with Trump.
In his guilty plea in August, Cohen implicated Trump by suggesting that the then-presidential candidate directed him to keep the affairs quiet.
His quote to George Stephanopoulos in July: “I put family and country first.”
The source with knowledge of the situation told Axios that Cohen’s party switch is “consistent with what he told Stephanopoulos on July 2, that constituted his declaration of independence two days before Independence Day, with the key message to Stephanopoulos that now I put my family and my country first.”
As a Democrat, I am not sure how I feel about somebody with Cohen’s past difficulty with ethics joining our side.
However, as somebody who really despises Trump, I appreciate how much this is really going to get under his skin.
