45th President and leading 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump is suing his ex-lawyer and now-convicted liar, Michael Cohen, for a whopping $500 million for breaching their attorney-client relationship.
According to an exclusive report from Fox News on Wednesday, Trump’s legal team filed a 30-page lawsuit in U.S. District Court from the Southern District of Florida.
“This is an action arising from [Cohen’s] multiple breaches of fiduciary duty, unjust enrichment, conversion, and breaches of contract by virtue of [Cohen’s] past service as [Trump’s] employee and attorney,” the lawsuit reads.
Fox News reports, “The lawsuit alleges Cohen breached his attorney-client relationship by ‘spreading falsehoods’ about Trump that was ‘likely to be embarrassing or detrimental, and partook in other misconduct,’ while also breaching contractual terms of a confidentiality agreement he signed as a condition of employment with Trump.”
“Such continuous and escalating improper conduct by [Cohen] has reached a proverbial crescendo and has left [Trump] with no alternative but to seek legal redress through this action,” the lawsuit reads.
“[Trump has] suffered vast reputational harm as a direct result of [Cohen’s] breaches,” the lawsuit adds.
Cohen, who is a convicted liar, pleaded guilty in 2018 to organizing hush money payments, making false statements to a financial institution, making false statements to Congress, and tax evasion. Cohen served three years in prison.
The lawsuit demands that Cohen “be held accountable.”
“Trump is demanding that Cohen pay “actual, compensatory, incidental, and punitive damages in an amount to be determined at trial, but expected to substantially exceed $500,000,000,” the lawsuit reads.
This comes after far-left and corrupt Manhattan prosecutors revealed their frivolous details concerning Trump’s 34 felony charges. They accused Trump of covering up sex scandals during the 2016 presidential campaign and falsifying business records in the first degree.
During far-left Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s press conference last week, he told reporters he doesn’t need to “specify” what Trump’s crimes actually are because “the law does not so require.”
“The indictment does not specifically say what those crimes were. […] What laws were broken?” a reporter asked.
“The indictment doesn’t specify because the law does not so require…” Bragg shockingly answered.
Assistant Manhattan district attorney Chris Connolly claimed in court that Trump falsifying business records undermined the integrity of the 2016 presidential election.
The judge presiding over Trump’s case, Judge Juan Merchan, didn’t place a gag order on Trump, but told Trump’s defense team to not make “statements that are likely to incite violence and civil unrest.”
Judge Merchan refused to issue a gag order on Trump since he is a “candidate for President of the United States” and “his First Amendment rights are critically important,” according to the Daily Mail.
Bragg could face up to five years in prison if he is responsible for leaking Trump’s frivolous indictment.
Leaking grand jury testimony is a Class E felony under New York state law and carries a prison sentence between one and five years.
“A Class E felony charge is considered more serious than a misdemeanor charge, and as such carries a potentially longer jail sentence. While a Class A misdemeanor in New York carries a sentence of up to 364 days, a Class E felony can result in a sentence of between one year and five years,” according to The Law Offices of Julie Rendelman.
Bragg, who has been exposed as being funded by a group supported by far-left billionaire George Soros, was able to get a Manhattan grand jury to vote to indict Trump. The Color of Change PAC, the “nation’s largest online racial justice organization”, which was given $1 million in May 2021 from Soros, gave $1 million to Bragg but later pulled back half of their donation.
Also on Tuesday, April 4, Adult film “star” Stormy Daniels lost another case against Trump in the 9th Circuit Court where Trump was awarded $121,962 in her attorney fees.
In March 2022, Daniels was also ordered to pay Trump $300,000 after losing a defamation case against him. The Manhattan grand jury voted to indict President Trump over a $130,000 payment to Daniels made by his former lawyer and now-convicted liar, Michael Cohen.
This makes Trump the first American president to ever face criminal charges.
