Michael Cohen previewed the cover of his upcoming book ‘Disloyal’ on Thursday
Michael Cohen previewed the cover image and title of his upcoming book ‘Disloyal’ on Thursday after the courts ruled against Attorney General Bill Barr’s attempt to stop him from publishing the tell-all.
‘Coming Soon,’ Cohen teased on Twitter along with an image of the cover of his memoir revealing the title, ‘Disloyal: The True Story of the Former Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump’.
The U.S. government made an agreement with federal prosecutors at the end of July to abandon its efforts to impose a gag order on Cohen as he prepares to release his book critical of his former boss.
Cohen, 53, was released from prison in May 2020 amid concerns over coronavirus after he served one year of his three-year sentence for pleading guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.
He returned to prison in early July after tweeting about planning to publish a book alleging Trump used racial slurs against former President Barack Obama and former South Africa President Nelson Mandela.
‘Favorable ruling yesterday by the Court as I am close to completion of my book…’ Cohen wrote of Trump’s niece Mary Trump being able to publish her critical book about her uncle.
‘…anticipated release date will be late September.’ Cohen wrote in another tweet.
A week after the president’s former fix-it man and personal attorney was released from prison for the second time, where he spent two weeks after refusing to cease speaking to the media, the ruling came in that he could speak with the media and publish his memoir.
The tweet of him touting his new book Thursday is the first time he has posted since being released from prison.

The court ruled against Attorney General Bill Barr, who Cohen sued, for trying to issue a gag order against him and sending him back to prison after his May released. The judge argued the move was in violation of Cohen’s First Amendment Rights
Cohen was thrown back into prison one week after tweeting that he would release his tell-all book ahead of the November presidential election and claiming it was a ‘favorable ruling’ that Trump’s niece Mary Trump was permitted to publish her own tell all
Cohen sued U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr and federal prison officials during his second stint, claiming he was ordered back because of the book.
U.S. Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein ordered he be released at the end of last month, saying the government’s action was retaliatory and a violation of his First Amendment rights.
Cohen intentionally revealed that the book would be coming out ahead of the November elections.
His will join a list of other pre-Election Day books aimed at outsing Trump, including Bob Woodward’s ‘Fear: The Trump White House,’ Mary Trump’s ‘Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man,’ and former National Security Advisor John Bolton’s ‘The Room Where It Happened.’
