Michael Cohen Threatened To Do ‘F*cking Disgusting’ Things To Reporter
President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen was recorded threatening Tim Mak, a then-Daily Beast reporter, who was covering Ivana Trump’s allegation of rape against the president in 2015.
NPR (where Mak now works) published the threatening call by Cohen:
Mark my words for it, I will make sure that you and I meet one day over in the courthouse and I will take you for every penny you still don’t have, and I will come after your Daily Beast and everybody else that you possibly know.
I’m warning you, tread very f***ing lightly because what I’m going to do to you is going to be f***ing disgusting. Do you understand me? Don’t think you can hide behind your pen because it’s not going to happen.
Cohen also falsely claimed that it is not possible for a man to rape a wife, which was legally not true when Ivana made her allegation against her ex-husband — during their divorce proceedings — which she recanted: “I referred to this as a ‘rape,’ but I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense.”
Cohen later apologized for his rape statement, noted CNN.
