President Trump’s former lawyer Michal Cohen is releasing a tell-all book claiming new allegations of fraud, infidelity and corruption against the president. Weijia Jiang reports.
“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 wrote in the 3,700-word release.
MICHAEL COHEN UPDATE
In an important ruling that recognizes the unlawful incarceration of Michael Cohen, U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of the Southern District of New York ordered he be released from prison no later than 2 pm on July 24th. This is not only a victory for Michael but a victory for the constitutional rights of Americans across the country. The ruling recognizes the individual freedom of the right to free speech, even to those who have been incarcerated.
The unlawful imprisonment was declared to be a retaliatory strategy to silence and intimidate Michael Cohen for exercising his right to speak freely about his past engagements and experience as the former personal attorney to the President of The United States.
U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE ALVIN HELLERSTEIN
“I’ve never seen such a clause, in 21 years of being a judge, sentencing people and looking at terms and conditions of supervised release, I’ve never seen such a clause”
