( – Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer of former President Donald Trump warned on Sunday about the possible risk of Trump returning to the White House as he is facing a number of legal cases. 

On Sunday, in an interview on MSNBC, Cohen who has become a vocal critic of his former employer argued that they needed to be “careful about him” becoming the U.S. president again as he was up “for sale.” He added that Trump needed to figure out where he would be raising over $500 million in a short time period. 

This latest warning came as Trump, who is believed to be the most likely 2024 Republican presidential nominee, was found to be facing $355 million in penalties as a result of a New York civil fraud case relating to the Trump family business. The case had been brought forward in 2022 by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) who had alleged that Trump and the Trump Organization had inflated and deflated the value of his assets in an attempt to receive further insurance and tax benefits. 

James further alleged that Trump would sometimes adjust the value of his assets in order to get more favorable deals and loan terms. The state has argued that this behavior was fraudulent. 

Last month, Trump was also made to pay in a different civil case relating to the sexual abuse and defamation of E. Jean Carroll, $83.3 million, while an earlier trial in a different case regarding Carroll had found Trump liable for paying $5 million. 

MSNBC host Symone Sanders-Townsend has suggested that Trump was available to “the highest bidder” because of the constant increase in the money he is required to pay.
