Cohen Says He Made Jerry Falwell, Jr.'s Racy Pics Go Away
Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. endorsed candidate Donald Trump in 2016.
But in 2015, Reuters reports the Liberty University president had asked Trump fixer Michael Cohen for a personal favor.
In a secretly recorded conversation, Cohen told Tom Arnold the Falwells wanted to keep certain personal photographs from the public.
Cohen’s connection to the Falwells sheds light on the formidable alliance between Trump and one of the most influential evangelical figures in America.
Falwell’s backing helped galvanize evangelicals and persuaded many Christians to embrace Trump as a repentant sinner.
Reuters has no evidence that Falwell’s endorsement of Trump was related to Cohen’s involvement in the photo matter.
