“He makes a better deal when he uses me, like everybody else. One of the reasons I respect Paul Manafort so much, is he went through that trial … y’know, they make up stories. People make up stories. The whole thing about ‘flipping,’ they call it. I know all about flipping, for 30, 40 years I’ve been watching flippers. And then they get 10 years in jail and they flip on whoever the next highest one is, or as high as you can go. It almost ought to be outlawed. It’s not fair. It’s somebody’s going to spend five years, like Michael Cohen, or 10 years, or 15 years in jail … If you can say something bad about Donald Trump, and you’ll go down to two years or three years, which is the deal he made, in all fairness to him, most people are going to do that.. it’s called flipping, and it almost ought to be illegal.
