What did Michael Cohen say about Trump and ‘golden showers’ in his new memoir Disloyal?

DONALD Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, is releasing a tell-all memoir about his time working as the president’s "fixer."

Cohen, 53, released the foreword of his book on Thursday, giving onlookers a juicy glimpse of what’s to come.

What is Michael Cohen’s new book Disloyal?

The book by Cohen is titled, Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J Trump.

Cohen wrote in the foreword: "I know where the skeletons are buried because I was the one who buried them.”

The memoir’s website boasts that the book “almost didn’t see the light of day as government officials tried to bar its publication.”

What did he say about Trump and ‘golden showers’?

Cohen wrote in the foreword that “in some ways” he knew Trump “better than even his family did.”

“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.”

“From golden showers in a sex club in Vegas, to tax fraud, to deals with corrupt officials from the former Soviet Union, to catch and kill conspiracies to silence Trump’s clandestine lovers, I wasn’t just a witness to the president’s rise – I was an active and eager participant,” Cohen wrote.

Trump has often been rumored to have been involved with another “golden shower” incident, in which a 2013 “pee tape” video reportedly shows Trump watching two prostitutes urinate on a bed slept on by former President Barack Obama at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Moscow.

What did Cohen say about Trump and Russia?

Cohen wrote that, “When Trump wanted to reach Russian President Vladimir Putin, via a secret back channel, I was tasked with making the connection in my Keystone Kop fashion.”

“Trump had colluded with the Russians, but not in the sophisticated ways imagined by his detractors. I also knew that the Mueller investigation was not a witch-hunt.”

Cohen went on to claim the president “cheated in the election, with Russian connivance, as you will discover in these pages, because doing anything—and I mean anything—to ‘win’ has always been his business model and way of life.”

He said that Trump “also continued to pursue a major real estate deal in Moscow during the campaign.”

Former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who investigated whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, investigated Trump’s role in the building of Trump Tower Moscow.

“He attempted to insinuate himself into the world of President Vladimir Putin and his coterie of corrupt billionaire oligarchs” Cohen wrote.

“I know because I personally ran that deal and kept Trump and his children closely informed of all updates, even as the candidate blatantly lied to the American people saying, ‘there’s no Russian collusion, I have no dealings with Russia…there’s no Russia.’”

What else did he say?

Cohen went on to write that on Trump’s behalf, he “stiffed contractors” and “ripped off his business partners, lied to his wife Melania to hide his sexual infidelities, and bullied and screamed at anyone who threatened Trump’s path to power.”

"Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did," Cohen wrote in the foreword.

He said: “The President of the United States wanted me dead. Or, let me say it the way Donald Trump would: He wouldn’t mind if I was dead. That was how Trump talked.”

Cohen claimed he's seen the 'real Trump' more than anyone in the president's family

He claimed Trump is 'a cheat, a liar, a fraud, a bully, a racist, a predator, a con man'

Cohen described Trump as a “mob boss” who used “language carefully calibrated to convey his desires and demands, while at the same time employing deliberate indirection to insulate himself and avoid actually ordering a hit on his former personal attorney, confidant, consigliere, and, at least in my heart, adopted son.”

“Trump has no true friends,” Cohen wrote. “I’m certain that Trump knows he will face prison time if he leaves office.”

When is the book being released?

Cohen’s memoir is set to be released on September 8 by Skyhorse Publishing.

Did Cohen go to prison?

Yes, Cohen is currently serving a three-year sentence after he pleaded guilty in 2018 to tax fraud, bank fraud, campaign finance charges, and lying to Congress.

The charges stemmed from his efforts to arrange payouts to porn star Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal to stop them from speaking about their alleged affairs with Trump during his marriage to First Lady Melania Trump.

Trump has denied the affairs, but Cohen has said that Trump directed him to make the payments.

In May, he was released from prison because of coronavirus fears, but was returned in July after he made it known he was planning to publish his memoir.

In July, Cohen was released from prison to serve the remainder of his sentence at home.

A judge said the reasoning for Cohen's release was because the government retaliated over his tell-all book of Trump.
