Comedian Tom Arnold said that he and President Trump’s former longtime personal lawyer are teaming up to “take down” the president, reports The Hill. On Thursday, Arnold tweeted a photo with Michael Cohen with the caption “I Love New York.” Cohen then retweeted the photo with no comment.

After, Arnold told NBC News that he met with Cohen as part of a show he is working on for Vice. The show revolves around him searching for incriminating videos of the president.

“This dude has all the tapes — this dude has everything,” Arnold told NBC News, according to The Hill. “I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together,’ and he’s so tired he’s like, ‘OK,’ and his wife is like, ‘OK, f— Trump.’”

The idea for the Vice show followed the leak of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape during the 2016 presidential race when Trump can be heard about grabbing women by the genitalia.

“We’ve been on the other side of the table and now we’re on the same side,” Arnold told NBC News. “It’s on! I hope [Trump] sees the picture of me and Michael Cohen and it haunts his dreams.”

Cohen is currently under investigation in New York for a number of alleged financial crimes. Prosecutors are also looking at the $130,000 payment that Cohen made to adult film-star Stormy Daniels, which she claims was part of a nondisclosure agreement to keep her quiet about an affair she had with the president. Arnold’s ex-wife, pro-Trump comedian Roseanne Barr, was fired off the ABC reboot of her show, Roseanne, following a racist tweet.
