Michael Cohen may be in prison, but the stories keep coming.
According to a Tuesday report from Reuters, the former Trump fixer apparently addressed a different problem for another conservative leader. Cohen claimed in a recorded conversation with actor Tom Arnold that he was recruited by noted bible-thumper Jerry Falwell Jr. to destroy racy pictures that had fallen into the possession of an unknown blackmailer, according to Reuters.
A source “familiar with Cohen’s thinking” told Reuters that Cohen met with an attorney for the blackmailer in Florida and told the attorney that his client was committing a crime. The lawyer later told Cohen that the photographs were destroyed, according to the source, but Cohen reportedly claimed to still have one of them on the call with Arnold.
