Michael Cohen addresses the fake Twitter account called @WomenForCohen



Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former longtime personal lawyer, paid a small tech firm to run a fake Twitter account called @WomenForCohe n, which was intended to make him look like a “sex symbol” and a “pit bull.”

When asked about the account Wednesday, Cohen told members of Congress that it was not created to protect Trump. Instead, he said, the account was created as a means to have “fun during a stressful time.”

“When you created the fake Twitter account @WomenforCohen and paid a firm to post tweets like this one, ‘In a world of lies, deception, and fraud appreciate this honest guy @MichaelCohen. #TGIF #handsome #sexy.’ Was that done to protect the president?” Rep. Jim Jordan asked.

Cohen insisted he did not pay RedFinch Solutions LLC to specifically tweet that, only to run the account.

In January, The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen paid the firm to create the account in May 2016 in support of him. Cohen later confirmed that to CNN.

“I didn’t actually set that up, it was done by a young woman who worked for RedFinch,” he said. “During the course of the campaign, which you would know, it’s somewhat crazy and wild. We were having fun.”

Cohen reiterated that the account was real. “That was a real Twitter account,” Cohen said. “It exists.”

During the exchange with Jordan, Cohen said he did not create the account to protect Trump and is “not sure” how the account helped him, either.

“We were having fun during a stressful time,” he said of @WomenForCohen.
