Michael Cohen released the foreword of his upcoming book on Thursday, teasing what he claims is a behind-the-scenes exposé of his acts as President Donald Trump’s fixer — from stiffing contractors on a business deal to lying about extra-marital affairs to the President’s attempts to “insinuate himself into the world of President Vladimir Putin.”
“I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them,” Cohen wrote in the foreword, which was published Thursday on a website for his tell-all book “Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump.”
“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.
The White House responded to Cohen’s upcoming book, calling it “fan fiction.”
“Michael Cohen’s book is fan fiction. He readily admits to lying routinely but expects people to believe him now so that he can make money from book sales. It’s unfortunate that the media is exploiting this sad and desperate man to attack President Trump,” White House deputy press secretary Brian Morgenstern said.
