    Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, said on Wednesday that he is working on a book documenting his experiences with the Justice Department just a month after the release of his first book, which painted a highly critical and inflammatory picture of the president. “There’s so much more to the story that hasn’t been told, tangentially, related to Donald Trump,” Cohen told Politico in an interview on Wednesday. “It is fair and accurate to state that President Trump has weaponized the Department of Justice against those he deems to be a threat thus making it into the Department of...

    President Donald Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen says he is working to free a whistleblower imprisoned by the White House for leaking classified documents on Russian efforts to hack the US election. Former National Security Agency contractor Reality Winner, 28, was sentenced to five years in prison in 2018 for supplying documents detailing the hack on US election infrastructure to a news website. Cohen, who the same year pleaded guilty to lying about Trump's business dealings in Russia, told Business Insider he is meeting with an attorney this week to take a 'deep dive' into Winner's case in the...
  • 'He'll be the first sitting President to go to jail!' Michael Cohen says 'corrupt' Trump's 'biggest fear' was always his tax returns being made public - and claims financial revelations are just the tip of the iceberg

    Michael Cohen has revealed Donald Trump's 'biggest fear' was always his tax returns being released to the public - and he predicts the president could go straight to prison for tax fraud after leaving the White House. The president's former personal attorney and self-described fixer, who himself was convicted for tax evasion, says the New York Times bombshell report about Trump's taxes for the past two decades is just the tip of the iceberg. He says the 'corrupt' president could face a raft more allegations should forensic accountants get hold of his returns.

    CNN President Jeff Zucker said in 2016 that he wanted President Trump "to do a weekly show" and offered advice ahead of a GOP primary debate on the network, according to audio of a phone conversation obtained by Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

    President Donald Trump took a swipe Tuesday at former lawyer Michael Cohen who is promoting a tell-all book – claiming Cohen may land back in jail and claiming there are 'many more' tapes of him and 'media scum reporters.' Trump called his former enforcer and lawyer at the Trump Organization 'deranged and sick' after Cohen gave an interview where he said Trump was like a cult leader and Cohen was swept into it. The president issued the online threat while retweeting a story from last week about newly revealed audio recordings of Cohen on the phone with CNN's Chris Cuomo...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Has the liberal media's blatant bias against President Trump hit a new low? A CNN host appears to have expressed sadness that allegations made against the president might not hurt him politically. On CNN's New Day this morning, substitute host Erica Hill was discussing allegations against President Trump contained in a book by Michael Cohen, his former employee. The particular subject at hand was Cohen's assertion that in the run-up to the 2016 election, Trump hired an actor to portray President Obama, and that Trump subsequently berated and ultimately "fired," a la The Apprentice, the "Faux-bama." Commenting on it, Hill...

    Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime fixer, claims his former boss routinely made sexist and racist comments and that he “loved Putin,” in a book that also recounts, in colorful detail, his own role in myriad alleged schemes on Mr. Trump’s behalf which helped lead to Mr. Cohen’s conviction on federal charges. A copy of the book, “Disloyal: A Memoir,” was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal before its publication date on Tuesday. In the book Mr. Cohen recounts watching Mr. Trump allegedly “corner pretty women in his office and forcibly kiss them as they recoiled,” often grabbing them by their...

'He readily admits to lying routinely but expects people to believe him now so that he can make money from book sales,' White House spokesman Brian Morgenstern said in a statement to the Associated Press. 'It's unfortunate that the media is exploiting this sad and desperate man to attack President Trump.' Cohen's book 'Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump' includes a number of salacious anecdotes, casting Trump...

    On his show Tuesday, Carlson only played a minutelong portion of the conversation, which reportedly spans nearly two hours, after hyping a big reveal on Monday and Friday. In the clip, Cuomo can be heard dismissing what he considers fraudulent allegations that he made women feel uncomfortable in the workplace.

    The House Ethics Committee admonished Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., for a 2019 tweet against Michael Cohen that suggested the former attorney to President Trump was unfaithful to his wife and had "girlfriends." Gaetz had already apologized for the tweet that he issued before Cohen's testimony before Congress and said his words were not meant to be construed as threatening to a witness. On Friday, he took the reprimand "with humility" while also noting his big primary election victory earlier this week. “The Ethics Committee has given me an admonishment," Gaetz said in a statement to Fox News. "My fellow Northwest...

    Michael Cohen published a first look at his book about Donald Trump on Thursday, revealing several bombshell claims, including that he witnessed a 'golden showers' incident. In the peek at his memoir 'Disloyal,' Cohen reveals the 'mob boss' mentality of the president in his foreword, which he titled 'THE REAL REAL DONALD TRUMP.' 'Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did,' Cohen wrote, claiming he was the one who pushed him to run for president in 2011 and 2015. 'In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore...

    Michael Cohen was cut loose from federal prison Friday afternoon — a day after a judge ruled he was thrown in jail as “retaliation” for planning to write a tell-all book about President Trump. Cohen was walked out of Otisville prison in central New York at about 1 p.m., his lawyer, Danya Perry, said. He was picked up by his son and is headed to his apartment in Manhattan. “Mr. Cohen is extremely gratified that the court upheld his fundamental constitutional right to speak freely and publicly,” Perry added in a statement. His release comes a day after Judge Alvin...

    BREAKING: A federal judge has ordered Michael Cohen, former attorney to President Trump, released from prison, agreeing with Cohen's lawyers that he was wrongly taken back into custody for criticizing the president. Cohen, who was serving a federal fraud sentence, was released on home confinement as prisons were emptied to the COVID-19 pandemic. A week after tweeting that he was finishing a tell-all book about Trump, a probation officer told him he would have to agree to a complete ban on speaking in public, including by publishing a book, as a condition of continued home confinement, according to court documents....

    Michael Cohen pleaded not to be hauled back into prison after US Marshals broke out the shackles when they took him into custody Thursday. “I’ll sign exactly what you want me to sign, so I don’t have to go back to jail,” Cohen whined to the lawmen who proceeded to chain him and take him into their custody, his former lawyer and friend Lanny Davis said.
