Lawyer and adviser Roy M. Cohn was a master of the attack and
counterattack. '“I just look at him [Trump] and see Roy,” Both of them are attack dogs,' said investigative reporter Wayne Barrett, who spent dozens of hours interviewing Cohn and Trump once wrote in “Trump: The Deals and the Downfall” that Cohn began to “assume a role in Donald’s life far transcending that of a lawyer. He became Donald’s mentor, his constant adviser.” Barrett now says Cohn’s stamp on Trump is obvious. ' 'Cohn himself once said he was “not only Donald’s lawyer but also one of his close friends.”There is danger in forgetting the past, and this proves it.
