Michael Cohen, the former attorney of Donald Trump, has unveiled what haunts the ex-president’s nights — the New York civil fraud trial. Could this be the end of his legacy?
Potential Crushing Blow to His Financial Empire
Cohen revealed Trump’s “biggest fear,” a fear that the trial may prove justified and, in doing so, deal a crushing blow to his financial empire.
The New York civil fraud trial, with its sky-high stakes, is sending tremors through Trump’s world, and all eyes are on this courtroom battle, particularly since Trump has set his sights on the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
Once a staunch ally, Michael Cohen, now standing on the opposing side, said, “I can tell you, this has always been his biggest fear, that he would lose money — that he would lose all of his money — and he would no longer be considered the mega-billionaire that he tried to portray himself as,” Cohen revealed.
Trump’s Willingness to Face Trial Intriguing
Cohen’s predictions regarding Trump’s willingness to face the trial are particularly intriguing. “What is he showing up for?” Cohen said. “To sit there and to watch? He’s not being called tomorrow.”
New York Attorney General Letitia James has gone all in, seeking a jaw-dropping $250 million penalty and a ban on Trump conducting business within the state. The battle lines are drawn, and the fight is intense.
Judge Arthur Engoron accused Trump of habitual deceit against “banks, insurers, and others.” The allegations are damning, pointing to a pattern of exaggeration and manipulation by the former President.
Trump is alleged to have inflated the values of his assets, including the iconic Trump Tower in Manhattan, but in classic Trump style, he denies everything. Trump, known for his tenacity, refused to go down without a fight, vowing to clear his name and salvage his reputation.
The trial isn’t merely a battle of words; it’s about the very properties that define Trump’s empire. Prized possessions like Trump Tower and golf courses hang in the balance, potentially slipping from his grasp.
“Corporate Death Penalty” for Trump
Legal experts are sounding the alarm bells, dubbing the trial’s potential outcome a “corporate death penalty.” Proclaiming his innocence, Trump plans to appeal the ruling. The question remains: Can this last-ditch effort alter the course of his empire’s fate?
In the era of social media, Trump utilized his platform, Truth Social, to voice his discontent, deeming the entire case a “sham.”
The revelations may just shake the very foundations of Trump’s empire, offering a glimpse into the heart of the former president’s “biggest fear.”
