On September 8, Michael Cohen — who served as President Donald Trump’s personal attorney and “fixer” — releases his book, Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump, and it appears that the tell-all not only be embarrassing for Trump, but could also lay out documentary evidence of crimes committed by the president over the years.
Former Trump administration communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who has read Cohen’s book, was a guest on MSNBC Saturday, and he made it clear that Cohen’s recollections could be a very big problem for the president, telling host Alex Witt that it documents “rank criminality” and adding:
“Steep, steep immorality backed up by evidence. It is not like Michael is going to say this and the White House is going to discredit him and say he has a problem in the court system and he went to prison.”
Scaramucci then noted that Cohen has the goods on Trump in the form of evidence:
“He is going to back it up with documentary evidence to show the level of illegality, the repetitiveness of the illegality, and I tweeted out earlier this morning that the betrayal to the country is astonishing. So that information originally, unfortunately, he’s done a very good job of over the last three years of capping that information. We are getting to his re-election and all of this information is going to be coming out and Michael’s book will be a very big cornerstone of that.”
Now consider that many of Trump’s sexual exploits may also be detailed in the book, perhaps even providing proof that the president has raped underage girls such as was alleged in 2016 lawsuit in which a woman said Trump and Jeffrey Epstein “repeatedly” raped her. Could Cohen have proof of that charge that was leveled against the president?
Having been Trump’s attorney, it’s also likely that Cohen knows of financial fraud and other crimes related to business deals the president has made.
The important thing about Cohen’s upcoming book is that it will help expose Donald Trump for the rank thug and lifelong criminal we’ve always suspected he is.
September 8 cannot get here soon enough.
