Lawyer Who Claimed Would ‘take a bullet’ For Donald Trump Turns Against Him



Former President Trump and his ex-attorney, Michael Cohen, found themselves in the same room Tuesday as the man who once famously said he’d “take a bullet” for his client testified against the Trump Organization in the civil trial that stems from New York Attorney General Letitia James’ years-long investigation.

Fox News reports that Cohen appeared in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday and testified that during his time at the Trump Organization he inflated the former president’s assets to “whatever number Trump told us to.””I was tasked by Mr. Trump to increase the total assets, based upon a number that he arbitrarily elected,” Cohen said Tuesday in court.Cohen also testified that he and former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg worked to “reverse-engineer the various different asset classes, increase those assets, in order to achieve a number that Mr. Trump had tasked us.”

Weisselberg, in a separate case out of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office in 2022, pleaded guilty to tax violations that spanned more than decade.Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has repeatedly said his assets were actually undervalued. Trump has repeatedly said his financial statements had disclaimers, requesting that the numbers be evaluated by the banks.

Trump, who has sat in court on certain days of the civil trial, attended proceedings on Tuesday and blasted Cohen as a “proven liar.”

“I’m not worried at all about his testimony,” Trump said. “He’s not a credible witness.”

Cohen, in 2018, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, making false statements to Congress, making false statements to Congress and tax evasion. He was sentenced to three years in prison.

Trump, throughout Cohen’s testimony, was seen shaking his head.
