Michael Cohen, the former lawyer to US President Donald Trump, says the president is a "racist, a con man and a cheat."
Cohen made the comment as he testified before the US Congress on Wednesday, February 27, voanews.com reports.
Legit.ng gathers that during his nearly six hours testimony, Cohen, who functioned as Trump’s attorney for a decade, painted an unflattering picture of the president.
He said: "Donald Trump is a man who ran for office to make his brand great, not to make our country great. He had no desire or intention to lead this nation, only to market himself and to build his wealth and power.
"I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr Trump's illicit acts rather than listen to my own conscience. I am ashamed because I know what Mr Trump is."
Cohen also disclosed that nothing happened within the Trump Organization without the president’s knowledge.
Speaking about the hacked Democratic National Committee emails during the 2016 election season, Cohen said Trump knew his campaign adviser, Roger Stone, was in contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange before the damaging mails on Hillary Clinton were released.
