Family of Trump Witness Doxed


( – Former President Donald Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, and his family are now the latest target of doxing after Trump’s conviction for falsifying business records.

According to Advance Democracy, a non-profit organization, Cohen’s wife and children’s addresses and phone numbers were posted online.

This happened just days after the group warned about violent social media posts targeting Judge Juan Merchan and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, both key figures in Trump’s conviction.

The non-profit organization also noted that supposed addresses of trial jurors had surfaced on a fringe online board known for its threatening, pro-Trump content.

“What sad times we are living through when people resort to this type of doxing stupidity to redress their grievances,” Cohen declared in a statement.

Cohen, a key figure in Trump’s trial, testified against Trump, saying he was directed to organize a hush-money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels to keep her from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump.

President of Advance Democracy Daniel Jones said his non-profit group had been monitoring the internet for threats and political violence. He explained, “During our most recent scan, we identified personal details online – doxing – for Michael Cohen, his wife, and his children.”

He continued:

“The individual who shared the information online, on a site known for doxing, likely had an intent to harm Cohen – providing these personal details on the Cohen family in the context of calling Cohen a ‘lying bastard’ and identifying him as someone who ‘betrayed Trump’, presumably for testifying for the prosecution in former president Trump’s [New York] criminal trial.”

Last week, the group highlighted that the doxing of figures related to the prosecution appeared on a site known as “The Donald,” used by Trump supporters to organize violence ahead of the January 6 Capitol attack.

“Dox the Jurors. Dox them now,” one user wrote post-conviction. Another said, “We need to identify each juror. Then make them miserable. Maybe even suicidal.”

Moreover, Jones had previously told NBC that his organization was “continuing to see a dangerous erosion of democratic norms” and increased online activity after the Trump verdict.

He emphasized the need for elected officials to “speak out against the disinformation Trump is spreading, as well as the calls for violence he’s inspiring.”
