Michael Cohen Claims Donald Trump Sought To Inflate His Net Worth, Leave His Children With Tax Bill


Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney to President Donald Trump, speaks to the media before departing his Manhattan apartment for prison in New York City.

In an interview with MSNBC broadcast on Saturday, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, shared details about the Trump Organization, Raw Story reported.

Speaking with anchor Alex Witt, Cohen shared a story about the president’s past attempts to inflate his net worth to impress members of the media and provoke fawning coverage.

During one meeting with Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, Trump explicitly said that he wants his net worth to appear higher than it is, Cohen alleged.
