Michael Cohen spent over 12 years of his life working as Donald Trump’s “fixer”. Few people know more about the inner-workings of the Trump foundation and how it operates. The lawyer ended up taking a fall for Trump in and is currently serving 3 years in prison.
Feeling betrayed by his friend and confidant, Cohen is now ready to spill the beans on his former employer and has announced a book deal. The book will be focused on his relationship with Trump and be released prior to the November election. According to the Washington Post, there will be details about Trump’s racism and anti-Semitism.
Cohen had been under house arrest due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But after breaking conditions of his agreement, he will now be sent back the prison.

The lawyer is suing Attorney General William Barr. He is arguing that he is being ordered back to jail as retaliation for his upcoming tell-all. He told the court of his book:
“In particular, my book will provide graphic and unflattering details about the President’s behavior behind closed doors.[The memoir] describes the President’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.”
The President and his family have recently been the subject of a number of tell-all books. Niece Mary Trump recently published a book about the Trump family history. A former friend of First Lady Melania Trump, will be dropping a critical tome in September. Cohen’s work is expected to be released around the same time.
