Shaub — who was in the midst of discussing Trump’s firing of acting Deputy Attorney Gen. Sally Yates — broke off and said, “Sorry, I just heard a voice in my ear.”

However, Cohen prevailed and his new book Disloyal: A Memoir. The true story of the former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to be released by Oct. 6, according to Amazon, but Cohen had initially said he hoped to have it out by the end of September.
