Michael Cohen: New York lawsuit will 'put an end' to the Trump Organization

Michael Cohen, former President Donald Trump's onetime fixer and personal attorney, says he was relieved on Wednesday when New York Attorney General Letitia James announced that her office is suing Trump and three of his adult children for fraud, alleging they falsely inflating the value of Trump Organization assets for years in order to gain economic benefits.

During an appearance on MSNBC's All In with Chris Hayes, Cohen said he's been "yelling for three-and-a-half, four years that the Trump Organization is a criminal enterprise and I got thrown under the bus by dear old Donald. ... Somebody always has to fall on the sword for him."
