President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against his former personal attorney Michael Cohen, seeking $500 million in damages for allegedly breaching his fiduciary duty and spreading lies about him.

The lawsuit, filed in a Florida federal court on Wednesday, accuses Cohen of violating their attorney-client relationship and a confidentiality agreement by revealing Trump’s confidences and making defamatory statements about him in his books, podcasts, and media appearances.

Cohen, who once called himself Trump’s “fixer”, has turned against his former boss and cooperated with prosecutors in the investigation into the hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and other crimes in 2018 and served three years in prison.

Trump, who was indicted last week on 34 charges of falsifying business records related to the payments, has pleaded not guilty and denounced Cohen as a liar and a rat. Trump’s lawyers said in the lawsuit that Cohen has “embarked on a campaign of lies” to smear Trump and profit from his betrayal.

The lawsuit cites several examples of Cohen’s alleged false statements, such as claiming that Trump directed him to make the payments to Daniels, that Trump knew about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians, and that Trump had advanced knowledge of WikiLeaks’ release of hacked Democratic emails.

The lawsuit also alleges that Cohen violated his contract with Trump by publishing two books about him without his consent, hosting a podcast called “Mea Culpa” where he criticizes Trump and his supporters, and appearing on various media outlets to attack Trump and his policies.

The lawsuit claims that Cohen’s actions have caused “irreparable harm” to Trump’s reputation and business interests, and seeks $500 million in compensatory and punitive damages, as well as an injunction to stop Cohen from further violating his contract.

Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, said in a statement that the lawsuit is “another example of Mr. Trump using and abusing the judicial system as a form of harassment and intimidation” and that Cohen “will not be deterred and is confident that the suit will fail based on the facts and the law.”

This is not the first time that Trump has sued Cohen for breach of contract. In 2019, Trump filed a similar lawsuit in New York state court, seeking $20 million in damages from Cohen for violating their nondisclosure agreement. That lawsuit was dismissed by a judge in February 2020.

Trump’s latest lawsuit comes amid his ongoing legal battles in New York, where he faces criminal charges from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and civil investigations from the New York Attorney General’s Office. Both probes are looking into his business dealings, tax returns, and financial transactions.

Trump has denied any wrongdoing and called the investigations a “witch hunt” motivated by political bias. He has also vowed to fight back against what he calls the “radical left” and their “fake news” allies.

  • Is it just me being “paranoid”, or does anyone else see all these ridiculous suits & countersuit as distraction from the REAL ISSUES we should be hearing about & investigating? “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” about Trump , Cohen, books, tell alls, blogs, etc! it’s NOT NEWS, it’s GOSSIP, & unimportant! What is China doing to Taiwan? What is Iran up to, & what’s Netanyahu doing about it? Where is the REAL Joe Biden, & why have we not even seen him for 2 yrs, while an UNELECTED IMPOSTER is destroying our nation utterly in his name? Come to it, why was “little Kimmie” launching large missiles toward Japan again, while we’re there, what’s wrong with him? He’s bloated, as in edematous, not just fat, these days… Are we looking at new leadership over there in the foreseeable future? Trump ceased to be news when Yhwh God pulled him out of the WH for not doing what he was put there to do; he’s just a distraction now…

    • If Trump isn’t elected in 2024, you can say good-bye to the United States. The Marxist Democrats funded by George Soros, Bill Gates, Zuckerberg and many others will take over completely, (which they have done since 2015 when Trump ran for president and continued on Jan. 6, and to this day) such as our fundamental freedoms, imprison anyone who dissents from their Communist ideology. We will be lucky if the Biden administration doesn’t sacrifice us to a nuclear war within that time frame. If you and others can’t see the writing on the wall, we are finished. This is reality, not exaggeration.

      • You are correct. The demonrats are going after anyone who disagrees with them and their corrupt way of thinking. this is not the America that we knew. The woke, crt crap needs to stop. The transtitioning of kids by teachers is evil. the teachers should be fired.
        If the kids want to to it, let them do it when they are old enough and at their own expense. Pray every night that things will cahange. I
        don’t know of another way to help.

  • I believe Cohen had the affair with stormy daniels and paid her off through / with Pres 45 money and didnt want HIS (cohens) wife to find out so used the excuse that he didnt want Melania to find out. He is bad man!

  • Good. He turned on Trump to save his butt. Lies, lies, lies – I hope he has to pay. Trump is not good at picking people to keep in his inner circle (this included his Administration – most were RINOs Pence wanted) – if he is elected he needs to take some time to make sure he picks people who won’t undermine him.
