Estimated read time 2 min read

Former United States President Donald Trump has dragged his former attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen to court. The lawsuit describes Michael Cohen as putting out “inflammatory, misleading, or outright false” about the former President.

According to the lawsuit, Cohen breached his attorney-client relationship by revealing confidential information during media interviews. One of such interviews the lawsuit said was related to the Manhattan District Attorney grand jury investigation which ultimately indicted Trump.

“During one such appearance, for example, Defendant discussed that he testified in front of the Manhattan District Attorney’s grand jury, and suggested that Plaintiff was, by virtue of Defendant’s knowledge of confidential information, criminally exposed,” portions of the lawsuit stated as quoted by CNN.

Also Michael Cohen’s books such as Revenge: How Donald Trump Weaponized the US Department of Justice Against His Critics, and Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump have also been said to have been used by Cohen to spew falsehood about the former president.

Per the lawsuit, Cohen “chose to capitalize on his confidential relationship with [Trump] to pursue financial gain and repair a reputation shattered by his repeated misrepresentations and deceptive acts, fueled by his animus toward the Plaintiff and his family members”.

Meanwhile, the attorney for Michael Cohen, Lanny Davis has accused the former President of “using and abusing” the judicial system. Davis said in a statement, “Mr. Trump is once again using and abusing the judicial system as a form of harassment and intimidation against Michael Cohen”.

Regardless of the former President’s antics, Cohen’s attorney said, “Mr. Cohen will not be deterred and is confident that the suit will fail based on the facts and the law”.
