Just weeks before the FBI raided former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s office, the embattled lawyer pitched a book to publishers defending the President from attacks claiming he was a liar, according to an exclusive report by the Daily Mail.
In his proposal for the book (with the working title, Trump Revolution: From The Tower to The White House, Understanding Donald J. Trump), Cohen wrote that the President is called many things–including “crazy,” “dumb,” and a “liar…” and that “none of it is true.”
The Daily Mail reports:
He sent his book to several potential publishers last year, and one, Hachette, reportedly was willing to pay him three-quarters of a million dollars for his wise words.
But Cohen, who is due to start a three-year prison term in May for crimes including tax evasion, lying to Congress and making false statements, thought he could do better and continued to seek more money, DailyMail.com can reveal.
One publishing executive told the Daily Mail, “Everything he wanted to say about Trump was positive. Even in our meeting he was glowing with praise for the president.”

In his proposal, Cohen said “looking out for Mr. Trump and his family” was his most important job.
President Trump reacted to the report, calling the book a “love letter to Trump.”
On Twitter, he wrote, “Wow, just revealed that Michael Cohen wrote a ‘love letter to Trump’ manuscript for a new book that he was pushing. Written and submitted long after Charlottesville and Helsinki, his phony reasons for going rogue. Book is exact opposite of his fake testimony, which now is a lie!”
The President also demanded that Congress look into the book.
“Congress must demand the transcript of Michael Cohen’s new book, given to publishers a short time ago,” he wrote on Twitter. “Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony. Like a different person! He is totally discredited!”
