Donald Trump is suing Michael Cohen for $500 million

(MIAMI) Donald Trump filed a complaint Wednesday against his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, who became a witness to prosecute the former president in a case that could be heard by a New York judge.

Republican billionaire Michael Cohen is alleging professional secrecy and breach of a nondisclosure agreement that brought them together, and is seeking $500 million in damages.

In her complaint, filed in a federal court located in Florida, the former attorney alleges that she “defamed herself in books, podcasts and public statements in order to gain money and fame.”

Michael Cohen, according to him, “showed confidence” and “spread lies”, which “damaged his image greatly”.

Nicknamed “Donald Trump’s pit bull,” Michael Cohen once said he was ready to “take a bullet” for his boss.

Shortly before the 2016 presidential election, she paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 out of her own pocket to keep quiet about her alleged sexual relationship with Donald Trump in 2016.

In January 2018, the Wall Street Journal disclosed this transaction. First, Michael Cohen shut the president down and promised never to be repaid.

But the article piqued Justice’s interest. Surrounded by investigators who discovered tax fraud in his accounts, Michael Cohen turned against Donald Trump. He admitted that he received eleven checks to cover the expenses incurred on Star X.

However, these payments were recorded as “legal fees” in the Trump Organization’s accounts, which resulted in Donald Trump being charged with 34 “false accounts” by a New York judge on April 4.
