Michael Cohen has accused President Donald Trump of leering at his teenage daughter in his new book.
“Disloyal, A Memoir” will be released on Tuesday, but excerpts and advanced copies have been released to multiple publications. Trump’s former self-professed “fixer” claimed that the president found his then 15-year-old daughter attractive in 2012, during an outing at a New Jersey golf club.
“When did she get so hot?” Trump allegedly said.
In another instance in the book, Cohen asserts that Trump told him that he could “have all of them,” in reference to Miss Universe pageant contestants.
As theGrio previously reported, Trump has been accused of sexual misconduct by various women. He has repeatedly denied the accusations.
The White House offered a denial on the latest accusations from Trump’s former lawyer. He was convicted of tax evasion and lying to Congress in 2018. He testified that the President told him to lie.
Cohen was sentenced to three years in federal prison, but is currently serving his remaining time under house arrest due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Michael Cohen is a disgraced felon and disbarred lawyer, who lied to Congress. He has lost all credibility, and it’s unsurprising to see his latest attempt to profit off of lies,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
Cohen admitted that despite all that has taken place, he still has a fond place in his heart for him even though he finds him to be a “cheat,”, “liar,” and “bully.”
“I care for Donald Trump, even to this day,” Cohen writes, “and I had and still have a lot of affection for him.” He added that he believed his former boss was a “visionary with a no-nonsense attitude and the charisma to attract all kinds of voters.”
Cohen wanted to be a part of that power but now wants to offer an apology to the country and his family. “This story is all I have left for my wife, my children and the country I love so much,” Cohen writes.
