Doc producers are after Michael Cohen for Trump’s ‘skeletons’

Former Trump fixer Michael Cohen is being chased by a host of top documentary- and Hollywood filmmakers, including producers for Michael Moore, hoping to get the inside story of his erstwhile alliance with President Trump — and details from conversations Cohen secretly recorded at Trump Tower.

Cohen, who on March 6 reports for a three-year prison sentence, “knows where more Trump skeletons are,” according to sources.

Cohen is still fighting for the return of, or access to, tapes he made of conversations while working at Trump Tower, which were seized by the FBI during raids of his home and office.

We’re told Cohen’s story of his years inside Trump Organization, and his recordings, are so sought after by liberal Hollywood that he has been approached by numerous producers, including one working with
Moore, another affiliated with Robert De Niro, CNN Films, as well as movie makers such as Lawrence Bender, who has worked with Quentin Tarantino .

But Cohen has declined all offers before he appears before the House and Senate intelligence committees. After misleading Congress about issues central to the Russia investigation, Cohen plans to correct the record and tell lawmakers all he knows about dealings with Russia during the election campaign.

He had been scheduled to publicly appear before the House Oversight Committee but postponed, citing “threats” to his family. But he has been subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he will testify behind closed doors.

Attorneys for Cohen didn’t comment, but a source said, “Michael Cohen has been approached by a number of high-profile producers and filmmakers for his story, as well as others offering book deals. He hasn’t accepted any of these deals on the advice of his legal team. He intends to comply with investigators and be fully open during his appearances before lawmakers. His main intention is to tell the truth as he knows it. There is a lot more to his story.”
