BREAKING: Trump Sues Michael Cohen For $500 Million!

Donald Trump sued his ex-attorney Michael Cohen for $500 million, “alleging a breach of his attorney-client relationship, unjust enrichment, and more,” FOX News reports.

The 32-page federal lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

FOX News shared details of the lawsuit:

The lawsuit alleges Cohen breached his attorney-client relationship by “spreading falsehoods” about Trump that were “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.

The lawsuit alleges Cohen spread falsehoods about Trump “with malicious intent and to wholly self-serving ends.”

The lawsuit details Cohen’s “myriad of public statements, including the publication of two books, a podcast series, and innumerable mainstream media appearances,” while ignoring “cease and desist” orders.

It claims Cohen has, in recent months, “increased the frequency and hostility of the illicit acts” and “appears to have become emboldened and repeatedly continues to make wrongful and false statements” about Trump through various platforms.

“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 states, adding that Trump has “suffered vast reputational harm as a direct result of [Cohen’s] breaches.”

The complaint against Michael Cohen “has nothing to do with the Manhattan DA’s lawless and fact-less case and is a totally separate matter,” a source close to Trump’s legal team reportedly said.

“[Cohen] unlawfully converted [Trump’s] business property when he fraudulently misrepresented a business expenditure, and stated that he was owed an extra $74,000 over the true amount of the expenditure. [Cohen] was reimbursed based on the fraudulent misrepresentation, and accordingly converted $74,000 from [Trump],” the lawsuit stated.

“[Cohen’s] improper, self-serving, and malicious statements about his former client, his family members, and his business constitute repeated and substantial violations of his continuing fiduciary obligations as an attorney,” the lawsuit added.

“[Cohen] chose to capitalize on his confidential relationship with [Trump] to pursue financial gain and repair a reputation shattered by his repeated misrepresentations and deceptive acts, fueled by his animus toward [Trump] and his family members. His actions constitute grave violations of his contractual and fiduciary duties to [Trump], and [Cohen] must be held accountable,” the lawsuit noted.

The lawsuit concluded:

“Wherefore, Plaintiff requests that this Court enter judgment in its favor grating the following relief:

(a) For actual, compensatory, incidental, and punitive damages in an amount to be determined at trial, but expected to substantially exceed Five Hundred Million Dollars($500,000,000);

(b) For restitution and disgorgement of any profits, payments, compensation, advances, royalties, and/or other monetary proceeds received by Defendant as a direct or indirect result of the publication of the Books, the Podcast, and other ancillary products;

(c) For the $74,000 that was subject to unlawful conversion and made via fraudulent misrepresentation by Defendant, plus interest and other costs and expenses;

(d) For interest, costs, expenses, and attorneys’ fees pursuant to statute; and

(e) For such other relief as this Court may deem fair, equitable and just.”
