In a one-on-one interview with Rachel Maddow, Michael Cohen says every felony he was charged with was directed by President Trump himself. Cohen says Trump personally approved salacious stories the National Enquirer published about Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio. Cohen also discusses the origins of Trump’s “hatred” for President Barack Obama, and why he believes he was the only one to be prosecuted for hush money payments.
