Summary note
"When Michael Cohen's secret payoff to porn star Stormy Daniels on behalf of Donald Trump made Cohen look like a liability to the by-then-President of the United States, the end to their decade-long relationship came swiftly--with a knock on the door from the FBI. Soon, Cohen would find himself imprisoned--even though he had plenty of evidence to show he was innocent of most of the charges. "I was introduced to Michael Cohen by our author John Dean, who impressed upon me that since Michael has come over from the dark side, he's taken quite a beating for doing so, and from both sides," said Melville House co-publisher Dennis Johnson. "This strikes me as an important story to tell, so we're proud to throw in with him as he continues to reveal first-hand how an authoritarian president can lastingly corrupt a government--and as he fights the continuing perniciousness of Trumpism." Meanwhile, with the release of the Steele Dossier, Cohen also found himself battling endless news reports citing the Dossier's claims that he'd had clandestine dealings with Russia--reports that only mounted despite his exoneration by the Mueller Report. In a story now being echoed in recent breaking news stories about IRS persecution of other Trump foes such as former FBI head James Comey and others, Cohen details--in his inimitable blunt language, with absolutely no holds barred and naming names--his attempt to clear his name and tell the truth about Donald Trump. Chillingly, he also makes clear what happens when you try to speak truth to power, and the power knows no bounds"-- Provided by publisher.
