Prepare for the coming attacks on Michael Cohen from President Donald Trump, because his former personal attorney has not only been released early from prison, he’s preparing to release a book revealing a lot of Trump’s bad behavior over the years.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Cohen is being released, so he won’t have to serve his complete three-year sentence related to Trump’s hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal during the 2016 election.
And the early release is already making Trump uncomfortable.
“The president was visibly agitated, bemoaning the early release of Michael Cohen, his former fixer and lawyer turned ‘rat’ for the feds,” The Daily Beast wrote citing a source close to Trump.

“He was not pleased when he found out Michael was getting out early,” the source said.
As for the book, Cohen began putting it together behind bars, and it could drop like a bombshell on Trump’s head, especially since it’s to be published prior to the 2020 election in November.
So, Trump is laying the groundwork to keep it from the public by “pursuing legal options against Cohen, if anything in his ex-fixer’s upcoming, dishy book on Trump breaks attorney-client privilege or is deemed defamatory or libelous, according to two individuals familiar with the matter.”
Trump is said to be particularly irritated by what Cohen could detail in his upcoming, potentially explosive memoir, which was first reported by The Daily Beast, and whether its contents would perturb Trump enough to sue Cohen. This new manuscript comes two years after Cohen’s hopes of publishing a prior memoir—a pro-Trump screed with the working title of Trump Revolution—were dashed amid his escalating legal woes.”
A source close to Cohen contends that none of the stories Cohen plans to tell are protected by privilege.
“The stories that will be in the book aren’t privileged. The stories wouldn’t violate attorney-client privilege,” the source said, according to The Daily Beast. “They are stories about Trump’s personality and behavior that would raise an eyebrow. There are stories about what it’s like being around this man and things that he did that most people typically do not do. A lot of it will be about looking at things he’s said and done with women and other things. It’ll be an insider’s look about what it was like to be alongside the president for 12 years.”
We already know that Trump has said and done a lot of shady things when it comes to women. He once admitted he likes groping them without their consent on a hot mic.
But perhaps we’ll get confirmation of some of the things former Apprentice showrunner Noel Casler has dished about Trump, including that he brutalized women in brothels.
Clearly, Trump is terrified of this book and the impact it could have on the election. Cohen spent many years with Trump and helped cover up a lot of his worst behavior. Now Trump’s betrayal of his former “fixer” is coming back to haunt him bigly.
