Body Language Analysis No. 4288: Is Michael Cohen going to Flip on President Trump? - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTO)

In a short segment within this video (from 1:06 - 1:09) - there's an utterly classic, in-context body language behavior yielding a profoundly valuable piece of information.

At 1:06, the cameraman asks Michael Cohen, "A lotta talk about you flipping - any possibility to that? - Now?"

Before he's completed his sentence (during 1:08 - as the cameraman says, "possibility"), Mr. Cohen immediately transitions his hands and arms from his sides - to a Fig Leaf configuration. Specifically, he clasps his hands in front of the groin. Not surprisingly, this body language stance is also known as Genital Guarding. This body language change is a profoundly beta body language display of the need for protection, low confidence, and fear.

SUMMARY:  This nonverbal dynamic (a sudden fig leaf) - in response to this particular provoking question screams two things:

1. Michael Cohen fears Robert Mueller
2. Michael Cohen will indeed Flip on President Trump
