‘The Jews always flip.‘ What Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff claims Trump said as series of associates including Michael Cohen did deals with investigators

In a new book by Michael Wolff, the author and journalist claims President accused Jewish people of flipping loyalty, especially in reference to his former Jewish associates.

‘The Jews always flip,‘ Trump said, according to Wolff‘s upcoming book Siege: Trump Under Fire.

According to the excerpt from the book, which was obtained by a week before its publication date, Trump made this remark after his associates made deals to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump‘s former fixer Michael Cohen, Trump Organization accountant Allen Weisselberg and American Media CEO David Pecker all made cooperating plea deals with Mueller‘s team – they are also all Jewish.

The book is set to be released June 4 and is a sequel to his 2018 book ‘Fire and Fury,‘ which detailed Trump and his staff‘s behavior during the 2016 campaign and the first year he was in office.

It also outlined dysfunction within the Trump White House.

A description of the new book on the publisher‘s website says Siege is an ‘explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side.‘

Trump has been scrutinized in the past for remarks viewed as racial slurs or just insensitive.

He often refers to Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as ‘Pocahontas,’ which stemmed from her claims to Native American heritage both on documents and applications and in speaking to the media and her constituents.

The president said he would donate $1 million to a charity of Warren’s choosing if she took a DNA test and it proved she was Native American. She released the results of a DNA test that showed she was 1/1024th American Indiana, which is less than the average white European American.

The president also came under fire for calling people involved in the Charlottesville clashes ‘very fine people on both sides.’ 

Neo-Nazi marchers and counter protesters conflicted in Charlottesville in 2017. Many people took the president’s remarks as his refusal to condemn white supremacists, who were protesting calls for the removal of the Robert E. Lee statue in the Virginia city. 

It’s not clear if there is any validity to Wolff’s claims that Trump has come fater Jews for being ‘flip.‘

Wolff‘s first book was highly scrutinized by fact-checkers, and the author admitted he included stories that he believed were not true. The follow-up book is also facing the same sort of doubts, even before its publication.

He says that certain claims in the book are ‘based on internal documents given to me by sources close to the Office of the Special Counsel.‘

‘The documents that you‘ve described do not exist,‘ Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, told the Guardian.

Cohen had previously served as Trump‘s lawyer, and was known as his fixer. He admitted he carried out distributing hush money payments ahead of the 2016 presidential elections to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who both allege they had extramarital affairs with Trump. 

The former attorney entered into a plea agreement in 2018 to cooperate with the special counsel‘s investigation, and admitted to lying to congressional panels investigation Russian interference.

Pecker, as well as American Media Inc., which is the parent company of National Enquirer, were given immunity from prosecution.

AMI admitted it made a $150,000 payment to ensure McDougal did not publicize her story of her affair with Trump before the 2016 election, and went further to admit the purpose of the payments was to suppress the story so it did not influence the election negatively for Trump.

Weisselberg, a Trump loyalist who was the individual that helped set up financing for the payments, also reached an immunity deal with prosecutors after being subpoenaed.

Wolff‘s book alleges that Trump generalized Jews flipping loyalties after making plea agreements with Mueller.

The special counsel began investigating Russian interference in the 2016 elections in 2017. Mueller‘s 448-page report with findings from the probe was made public in April.

The report said the investigation found no evidence that Trump, his associates, those in his campaign or within his administration had conspired with the Kremlin to influence the outcome of the 2016 elections.

Trump says the findings fully exonerate him from all crimes, including obstruction of justice, which the report did not weigh in on.
