DONALD Trump's ex-lawyer Michael Cohen has stunningly claimed the president could go to jail if he loses the election.

Cohen, a convicted felon, alleged in the foreword of his memoir, Disloyal, that "treachery" and "deceit" committed by Trump will be discovered by the POTUS to follow his presidency.

"The types of scandals that have surfaced in recent months will only continue to emerge with greater and greater levels of treachery and deceit," the disbarred lawyer wrote in the foreword of the book.

"If Trump wins another four years, these scandals will prove to only be the tip of the iceberg," Cohen claimed.

"I’m certain that Trump knows he will face prison time if he leaves office, the inevitable cold Karma to the notorious chants of 'Lock Her Up!'”

Cohen, who served as an attorney for Trump from 2006–2018 and was sentenced to three years for tax evasion and campaign finance violations, said America's next POTUS will unveil shocking truths about Trump.

"Whoever follows Trump into the White House, if the President doesn’t manage to make himself the leader for life, as he has started to joke about — and Trump never actually jokes — will discover a tangle of frauds and scams and lawlessness.

"Trump and his minions will do anything to cover up that reality, and I mean anything," he claimed.

Cohen, 53, sensationally claimed in Disloyal that Trump witnessed “golden showers in a sex club in Vegas” and accused him of "cheating" in the election – with help from Russia.

The book, the release of which has been contested by the Trump Administration in the Southern District of New York, is currently available for pre-order on its website.

Cohen also slammed Trump for acting “like a mob boss” who “wanted me dead” – claiming “the death threats had come by the hundreds” after he decided to cooperate with the Mueller investigation.

“The President called me a rat and tweeted angry accusations at me, as well as my family. All rats deserve to die, I was told,” Cohen said.

“I was a lowlife Judas they were going to hunt down.”

Cohen also wrote: "Apart from his wife and children, I knew Trump better than anyone else did," claiming he was the one who pushed him to run for president in 2011 and 2015.

"In some ways, I knew him better than even his family did because I bore witness to the real man… and in the unguarded moments when he revealed who he really was."

Last month, the ACLU announced it would sue Trump for imprisoning Cohen "in retaliation for his plans to publish the book."

US District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein ordered Cohen to be released from prison to home confinement in July, also claiming the government had retaliated over the tell-all book.

Cohen was released from prison in May amid coronavirus concerns after he served just one year of his three-year sentence for pleading guilty to campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.
