On Saturday, former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen revealed that Trump told him that if one of his kids had to go to prison to ‘make sure’ it was Donald Jr., not Ivanka” when his children were on the verge of being indicted for lying to federal officials, Business Insider reports.

Cohen’s revelation came during an appearance on MSNBC as he recalled that the former president was concerned about Ivanka’s well-being if she was sentenced to jail and that Don Jr. would handle it better.

“You may recall that there was the district attorney’s case here for Trump Soho where it was either Don or Ivanka was in very big trouble as a result of lying about the number of units that had been sold,” Cohen told MSNBC host Alex Witt,” according to Business Insider.

“And Donald said it to me – I mean I wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t said directly to me – he goes ‘if one or the other has to go to prison, make sure that it’s Don because Don would be able to handle it, ” Cohen said.

Cohen added that he doesn’t expect Ivanka to willingly appear before the House committee investigating the Jan 6th insurrection and claimed the first daughter would likely plead the 5th before explaining, “Ivanka is only interested in Ivanka.”
