Trump’s ex lawyer, Cohen reveals president’s lies, tax fraud

Michael Cohen is set to release a Book revealing his time as Donald Trump’s lawyer and fixer after the US justice department dropped a gag order.

Releasing his teaser on Friday, August 14, Cohen claimed he helped the president commit tax fraud, created a secret back channel to Vladimir Putin, covered up affairs and witnessed a ‘golden showers’ incident at a sex club in Las Vegas.

‘I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them,’ Cohen wrote in the foreword, which was published on a website for his tell-all book ‘Disloyal: A Memoir.

The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump.’ ‘In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the real man, in strip clubs, shady business meetings, and in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really was: a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man,’ Cohen said.

Cohen, who is serving a three year sentence for multiple crimes including lying to Congress, admitted to being a ‘demented follower’ who acted as Trump’s bully, fixer and designated thug.

‘I stiffed contractors on his behalf, ripped off his business partners, lied to his wife Melania to hide his sexual infidelities, and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened Trump’s path to power,’ Cohen wrote.

‘From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise—I was an active and eager participant.’

Cohen also addressed the investigation by former special counsel Robert Mueller into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and his role on the Trump Tower Moscow project. When Cohen pleaded guilty, he admitted that he lied when he told Congress that the discussions about the project ended before

Trump’s campaign began in earnest. In truth, he said, they continued well into 2016 campaign. In his book he claims Trump ‘cheated’ in the election with ‘Russian connivance’, though he does not say how.

Cohen says: ‘Trump had colluded with the Russians, but not in the sophisticated ways imagined by his detractors.

‘I also knew that the [Robert] Mueller investigation was not a witch-hunt. Trump had cheated in the election, with Russian connivance, as you will discover in these pages, because doing anything -and I mean anything – to “win” has always been his business model and way of life.’

He says Trump tried to ‘insinuate’ himself into Putin’s world and his ‘coterie of corrupt billionaire oligarchs.’ In a court filing, Cohen also said that the book will provide ‘graphic and unflattering details about the President’s behaviour behind closed doors’, including Trump’s ‘pointedly anti-Semitic remarks and virulently racist remarks against such Black leaders as President Barack Obama and Nelson Mandela, neither of whom he viewed as real leaders or as worthy of respect by virtue of their race’.

He said the book will be based on personal anecdotes and ‘documentary evidence.’ He makes clear that he speaks from a position of knowledge, saying that for 10 years, he was Trump’s last call at night and first in the morning and that he was ‘in and out’ of Trump’s office ’50 times a day.’

The book is expected to be published in full in September. The White House has not addressed specific claims made by Cohen in the book’s foreword, but branded the book ‘fan fiction’.

‘Michael Cohen’s book is fan fiction. He readily admits to lying routinely but expects people to believe him now so that he can make money from book sales. It’s unfortunate that the media is exploiting this sad and desperate man to attack President Trump,’White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said.
