How much interest is there in Michael Cohen’s new book? It’s already a #1 bestseller in multiple categories on Amazon, and #4 overall, without Cohen having done anything more than releasing the book’s foreword. But every book launch comes with a media blitz, and it looks like Cohen is swinging for the fences.
Michael Cohen just tweeted this: “Many have asked for me to appear on @maddow. I am in talks right now with her staff. One topic for sure…my upcoming book.” This is notable for a couple reasons. Rachel Maddow is a smart, savvy, and tough interviewer, to the point that a lot of people are afraid to go on her show. Cohen knows that Maddow will ask him challenging questions about his criminal history with Trump.
This means that Michael Cohen is prepared to talk about everything, or else he’d be sticking with softer interviewers. In turn this suggests that Cohen’s book reveals every ugly thing that ever went on between him and Donald Trump. No wonder Trump tried to throw Cohen back in prison just to try to stop this book launch. You can preorder the book here.
