Washington: Donald Trump's former lawyer wrapped up hours of explosive congressional testimony on Thursday by warning that the US president may not accept a “peaceful transition of power” if he loses re-election in 2020.

Michael Cohen, who implicated the president in federal crimes and said Trump would do anything to win, said he offered his bombshell alarm as someone who knows the president well.

 

“Given my experience working for Mr Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” he said in a final statement to the House Oversight and Reform Committee after hours of public testimony.

Cohen acknowledged that his blind loyalty to Trump “has cost me everything.”
