What a Creep Season 5, Episode 9: Roy Cohn

Roy Cohn is one of the most influential lawyers to have ever practiced in the United States. Linked closely with McCarthyism and never accepting responsibility for its defeat– Cohn was a self-described patriot who felt the ends justified the means.

  • A gay man who prosecuted homosexuals
  • A lawyer who broke the law frequently and ripped off his clients

 So, let’s learn about him now!
