Disloyal: A Memoir: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump

This book almost didn’t see the light of day as governmentofficials tried to bar its publication.The Inside Story of the Real President Trump, by His FormerAttorney and Personal Advisor—The Man Who Helped Get Him Into theOval OfficeOnce Donald Trump’s fiercest surrogate, closest confidant, andstaunchest defender, Michael Cohen knows where the skeletons areburied.This is the most devastating business and political horror storyof the century. As Trump’s lawyer and “fixer,” Cohen not onlywitnessed firsthand but was also an active participant in the innerworkings of Trump’s business empire, political campaign, andpresidential administration.This is a story that you have not read in newspapers, or onsocial media, or watched on television. These are accounts thatonly someone who worked for Trump around the clock for over adecade—not a few months or even a couple of years—could know. Cohendescribes Trump’s racist rants against President Barack Obama,Nelson Mandela, and Black and Hispanic people in general, as wellas the cruelty, humiliation, and abuse he leveled at family andstaff. Whether he’s exposing the fact that Trump engaged in taxfraud by inflating his wealth or electronic fraud by rigging anonline survey, or outing Trump’s Neanderthal views towards women orhis hush-money payments to clandestine lovers, Cohen pulls nopunches.He shows Trump’s relentless willingness to lie, exaggerate,mislead, or manipulate. Trump emerges as a man without a soul—a manwho courts evangelicals and then trashes them, panders to thecommon man, but then rips off small business owners, a con man whowill do or say absolutely anything to win, regardless of the costto his family, his associates, or his country.At the heart of Disloyal, we see how Cohen came under the spellof his charismatic "Boss" and, as a result, lost all sense of hismoral compass.The real "real" Donald Trump who permeates these pages—theracist, sexist, homophobic, lying, cheating President—will bediscussed, written about, and analyzed for years to come.
