Longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has scrubbed his Twitter bio of all Trump references, fueling further speculation that he is considering testifying against his former boss.
Cohen’s bio previously read “Personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump.” Now, Cohen’s bio is blank. He also changed his background image from a photo of him at a Trump campaign podium to a simple American flag.
Vanity Fair journalist Emily Jane Fox, who wrote the recent book “Born Trump” detailing the lives of Trump’s children, noted the changes on Twitter.

This Trump scrub only added fuel to the fire that Cohen may flip on the president. In an interview Monday with George Stephanopoulos, Cohen refused to declare allegiance to the president, and hinted that he may have damaging information on the infamous Trump Tower meeting in the summer of 2016 between Trump campaign operatives and individuals with ties to the Russian government.
In the meantime, Cohen has been tweeting Independence Day greetings and innocuous links about his interview. However, his LinkedIn is still listed as his personal website on Twitter; he listed June 2018 as his end date at “Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump.”
