See Who’s Supporting Trump’s Battle with Manhattan DA, You’ll Be Surprised

Former President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for $500 million. The lawsuit alleges that Cohen violated attorney-client privilege by sharing confidential information and spreading lies about him “with malicious intent and to wholly self-serving ends.”

During a panel discussion on Fox News, attorney Alan Dershowitz praised Trump’s legal move, calling it a “legitimate move” and one that should have been done. He also pointed out that transparency is essential, and if people have nothing to hide, they shouldn’t be worried.

Gregg Jarrett, another panelist, said that the lawsuit centers around the many lies of Michael Cohen. Cohen had lied to the IRS, U.S. banks, and Congress, causing reputational damage.

Jarrett also said that Cohen committed theft, and unjust enrichment by defrauding Trump over a phony business venture and pocketed an exorbitant amount of money over something that did not exist. On top of that, there’s also a breach of fiduciary duty, which is pretty darn clear with Cohen, and a breach of contract.
