For more than a decade, Michael Cohen worked for Donald Trump as his personal attorney. This week, Cohen penned a scathing piece attacking the President, labeling him a “liar.”
In the article, published by Daily Mail, Cohen slams the President saying he revels in conflict. “Each day I watch in amazement as the President makes statements or tweets that further divide this country,” Cohen writes. “Worse, he actually takes pleasure in the chaos and hatred it elicits. As someone who worked for him for over a decade, it’s actually much worse than people know.”
Furthermore, Cohen accuses the President of regularly lying. “President Trump has become the worst version of himself imaginable,” he writes. “President Trump lacks the ability to demonstrate empathy for others, while being completely dishonest to the American people; and all at the same time.”
Michael Cohen Blames President Trump Ruining His Personal Life
Cohen blames President Trump for destroying his personal and professional life. “My loyalty to Mr. Trump has cost me everything: my family’s happiness, friendships, my law license, my company, my livelihood, my honor, my reputation and my freedom,” he writes.
In conclusion, Cohen urges Americans to reconsider their position on Donald Trump. “Whatever your political affiliation is, I say this as a witness, open your eyes as I have and acknowledge that President Trump cares for nothing or anyone other than himself,” he writes. “None of us can afford to take a bullet for him!”
In 2018, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison. He served time behind bars for directing hush payments to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels. Both women claim they had affairs with Trump.
Currently, Cohen is on house arrest. He plans to release a new book, Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, on Sept. 8.
