The FBI on Friday released nearly 750 pages of documents from the bureau’s file on the the late Roy Cohn, the controversial, hyper-aggressive lawyer whose high-profile clients included President Donald Trump when Trump was a fledgling real estate mogul in New York City.
Cohn was famous — and infamous — for his work for Sen. Joseph McCarthy of Wisconsin in the 1950s investigating suspected infilitration by communists in U.S. government agencies, as well as his role prosecuting Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed for stealing American atomic secrets.
In the Rosenberg case, Cohn later admitted to conversations with the trial judge outside of the presence of the Rosenberg lawyers — a serious ethical breach by both Cohn and the judge.
The Big Apple bon vivant Cohn also was an associate of the admitted Republican dirty trickster Roger Stone, another Trump ally.
Stone currently is under indictment for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing justice, charges related to his alleged efforts to get WikiLeaks to release emails stolen from Democrats during the 2016 presidential campaign. He has pleaded not guilty in that case.
The vast majority of the FBI files include details of an investigation into Cohn for perjury, conspiracy and obstruction of justice in connection with a grand jury probe of an alleged $50,000 bribe Cohn paid the then-chief assistant U.S. attorney in Manhattan to keep several stock swindlers from being indicted in 1959.
Cohn was found not guilty after a trial in that case in 1964.
A number of the files were sent directly to J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI’s director at the time, and reflect the bureau’s painstaking efforts to acquire information about trips by Cohn to Las Vegas in 1959, and other evidence, in connection with the bribery case.
One memo that was sent in July 1962 to both Hoover and then-Attorney General Robert Kennedy details the claim by a source of the FBI’s Las Vegas office.
The source said that gamblers in that city, worried about “extreme pressure” being applied by the federal government on the Nevada gambling industry, had approached the Justice Department’s criminal division chief “to determine whether he would ‘trade Las Vegas’ for ‘Roy Cohn.’”
The Justice Department’s division chief “flatly rejected” that approach, the source told the FBI.
A small part of the files released Friday include a letter that Cohn sent Hoover in 1969, when Cohn was being prosecuted on other federal criminal charges, for which he ultimately was acquitted.
Cohn’s clients after his acquittal included Trump, media mogul Rupert Murdoch, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, and Carmine Galante and “Fat Tony” Salerno, suspected Mafia chieftains. He also numbered among his celebrity friends President Ronald Reagan’s wife, Nancy.
Trump introduced himself to Cohn, who was sitting at a nearby table, and sought advice: How should he and his father respond to Justice Department allegations that their company had systematically discriminated against black people seeking housing?”″ The Post reported.
“My view is tell them to go to hell,” Cohn said, according to the Post. “And fight the thing in court.”
Cohn eventually filed a $100 million countersuit against the Justice Department for its allegations against Trump’s company. After that suit failed, Trump settled the Justice Department’s claims out of court.
Cohn died in 1986 from complications of AIDS, less than two months after being disbarred for professional ethics violations.
Despite years of using rumors about the homosexuality of his foes to smear them, Cohn himself was gay. He claimed until his death that he had liver disease, not AIDS.
Cohn’s closeted sexuality, ruthlessness against alleged communists and role as a bete noire of the left in the United States led to him being featured as a prominent character in Tony Kushner’s landmark play, “Angels in America.” Al Pacino portrayed Cohn in the HBO adapation of that drama.

Cohn was one of two personal lawyers for Trump to be disbarred, in his case for a range of misconduct.
The second was Trump’s more recent attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, who is serving a three-year federal prison term for crimes that include ones related to a hush money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about an alleged sexual tryst with Trump in the mid-2000s.
Trump denies having sex with Daniels or with another woman, Playboy model Karen McDougal, who received another hush money payout before the 2016 election that was facilitated by Cohen.
“My cousin Roy Marcus Cohn—counsel to Senator Joe McCarthy, consigliere to Mafia bosses, mentor to Donald Trump—had almost no principles,” the column by David Marcus said.
“He smeared Jews even though he was Jewish. He tarred Democrats even though he was a Democrat. He persecuted gay people even though he was gay. Yet throughout his life, he held fast to one certainty: Russia and America were enemies,” Marcus wrote.
“Roy often told me the Kremlin blamed the U.S. for Russia’s failure to prosper, so Russian leaders were bent on destroying our democracy. If Roy had lived another 30 years, I’m sure he’d be pleased to learn that his protégé was elected president. But I am equally sure Roy would be appalled by Trump’s obsequious devotion to ex-KGB officer Vladimir Putin.”

DISRUPT, DISCREDIT, AND DIVIDE
How the New FBI Damages Democracy
By Mike German
These are strange times. In the not-too-distant past, those on America’s political left viewed the F.B.I. with suspicion, while those on the right applauded the bureau’s investigations into unions, civil rights groups and antiwar protesters, all of which were considered likely tools of Soviet communism. But now, in the topsy-turvy world of Donald Trump’s America, it’s the left that praises the F.B.I. as a bastion of noble values and demands investigations into Russian efforts to manipulate American politics — while those on the right condemn what they see as ideologically motivated F.B.I. probes.
In “Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy,” Mike German reminds us that there are good reasons not to idealize the F.B.I. From the abuses of the former director J. Edgar Hoover to post-9/11 profiling of Muslim Americans, he argues, the F.B.I. has been an instrument of repression and racism, “using its enhanced national security powers to silence whistle-blowers, suppress minority communities, intimidate dissidents and undermine democratic controls over its operations.”
German, an F.B.I. agent for 16 years (most recently in 2004), is now at New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice. His book is a capsule history of his former employer’s scandals and abuses: During World War I, the young Bureau of Investigation assembled dossiers on thousands of Americans believed to have pro-German sympathies. Pacifists and socialists came under particular scrutiny, and countless lives and reputations were ruined by unsubstantiated accusations. By 1919, the 24-year-old Hoover, at the helm of the newly created “radical division,” was busy “assembling a massive catalog of ‘radicals’ … the usual suspects were again journalists, labor unions, progressive politicians, civil rights lawyers … black activists.”
In German’s telling, overzealous and overly broad investigations — relying on unreliable informants and fueled by paranoid fixations on foreign influence and leftist domestic agitators — quickly became a hallmark of the F.B.I. Fear of German influence during World War I made way for fear of communists during the Cold War and Muslim extremists after 9/11 — but tactics remained the same. After 9/11, the F.B.I. pulled in thousands of Muslim and Arab Americans for “voluntary” interviews, detained scores as “material witnesses” and built, with little oversight or mechanism for appeal, a terrorist “watchlist” naming hundreds of thousands of Americans.
The problem, German compellingly argues, isn’t simply that the F.B.I. has targeted innocent people in the name of national security. It’s that the agency’s obsessions fuel discrimination and violence against racial, ethnic, religious and political minorities, while allowing other security threats — like those now posed by white nationalists — to go unchecked. Consider what happened after 9/11: Resources were diverted from domestic extremist terrorism and into investigations of Islamic terrorism, even though statistically, homegrown right-wing extremists are arguably a greater threat.
Other large-scale crimes were also neglected, German charges. For instance, under the director Robert Mueller, the F.B.I. “transferred about 500 agents from white-collar crime squads to terrorism,” leaving only “a skeleton crew … to address the growing mortgage fraud crisis.” Then, after the 2008 financial crisis, the F.B.I. “failed to hold the top corporate beneficiaries of those frauds … liable.”
At times, “Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide” feels more like a diatribe than a work of careful scholarship: German gives readers little context against which to evaluate the F.B.I. as a whole. He doesn’t say much about its successes, making it hard to know whether the flaws he cites are the exception or the rule. But this, German contends, is part of the problem: Since there is little public d
ata “on how the F.B.I. uses its intelligence and investigative powers,” it’s almost impossible to evaluate whether the F.B.I. gets it mostly right or mostly wrong.
Still, German’s book is ultimately a powerful argument against idealizing the F.B.I. and overlooking its troubling record for the sake of short-term political convenience. In today’s divided America, the enemies of our enemies are our friends; if Donald Trump thinks the F.B.I. is full of “corrupt,” treasonous “losers” on a “witch hunt” into his connections with Putin’s Russia, Trump’s critics are quick to praise the bureau for championing the rule of law. But while Trump’s attacks may be unfounded, the F.B.I.’s many failings over the years have contributed substantially to public cynicism, German contends — and “when people lose respect for government institutions and confidence in the rule of law,” the result is predictable: They “look for stability in authoritarian leadership, placing their faith in a strong individual who can ‘drain the swamp.’”
