More than two dozen former and current Liberty University officials have broken their silence about the school's president, Jerry Falwell, Jr., who is increasingly focusing on alleged inappropriate behavior.

In the past year, Falwell has been accused of conducting business deals that have benefited his friends, including his personal trainer Benjamin Crosswhite.

It was revealed in May that Falwell asked Trump & # 39; s former fixer Michael Cohen in 2015 to help some & # 39; personal & # 39; photos & # 39; s disappear.

A few months later, in August, it was reported that Donald Trump's evangelical leader and prominent donor approved personal property transactions through his non-profit Christian university that helped Crosswhite obtain valuable college property, according to property data, internal university emails and interviews.

Reportedly, officials do not believe Falwell is the right man to serve as a leader in the Christian conservative movement.

An official told Politico: & We are not a school; we are a real estate hedge fund. We do not train; we buy real estate every year and take the money from students for that. & # 39;

Other officials claimed that Falwell and his wife, Becki, had gained power at Liberty University, allowing their family and friends to make personal financial gains.

In one example, the unnamed officials said that Falwell took the decision to hire his son Trey's company to manage a university-owned shopping center.

Some employees recalled Politico authorities in which Falwell partyed in night clubs and discussed his sex life with university officials.

Earlier this year it was reported that Falwell had contacted Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

During a telephone conversation with actor Tom Arnold, Cohen said that the president of Liberty University asked Twell for a few months for Falwell & # 39; s game-changing approval after someone spicy & # 39; personal & # 39; had obtained photos.

Cohen described the photo & # 39; s for Arnold as & # 39; terrible & # 39; and of the kind that would normally be kept between men and women & # 39 ;, according to a recorded conversation that was assessed by Reuters.

After the Falwells told Cohen that someone had taken photos and demanded money, Cohen flew to Florida and met a lawyer for the person with the photos.

The attorney of the person who owned the photos told Cohen that they were all destroyed after Cohen intervened on behalf of the Falwell and pointed to the crime the person committed.

At the time, Falwell refused to comment on Cohen's conversation through a lawyer.

The Falwells called on Cohen & # 39; s assistance in the year that Trump announced his presidential candidacy. At the time, Cohen was the confidant and personal attorney for Trump and worked for the Trump organization.

Cohen's connection with the Falwell sheds light on the formidable alliance between Trump and a man who through his university is one of the most influential evangelical figures in America.

Falwell's support helped galvanize evangelicals and persuaded many Christians who were concerned about Trump's behavior in the past to embrace him as a repentant sinner.

According to Politico, Falwell defended his actions and criticized their recent article, saying: “I fear that the real information that I share in good faith simply won't make a difference. And that only leads to more questions. & # 39;

The news says that Liberty board members and senior university officials were among those interviewed about Falwell's alleged behavior.

A senior official said Falwell runs the university as a & # 39; dictatorship & # 39 ;.

& # 39; No one is clocking in college without Jerry's approval, & # 39; said the official.

First, the university uses confidentiality agreements that prohibit employees or board members from discussing Falwell's actions openly.

& # 39; Everyone is afraid of their life. Everyone is walking around anxiously, & # 39; said a current university employee.

Although they fear that Falwell will take revenge on them when they talk about him, some believe that & # 39; someone is the freakin & # 39; must tell truth & # 39 ;.

& # 39; We are talking about the difference between right and wrong, & # 39; said a current senior university official.

& # 39; Not even & # 39; being a Christian & # 39; but being a good person versus people manipulating the system, & # 39; the official added.

As the leader of Liberty, Falwell earns an annual salary of nearly $ 1 million and is obliged to put the financial interests of the university above his own personal interests when doing business with Liberty.
