Cohen Attorney Lanny Davis: Cohen Will Work with Mueller for Next Three Months Finding a Trump Crime Before Heading to the Slammer
Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen appeared in a Manhattan court Wednesday to face sentencing on nine charges.
Cohen was targeted by federal prosecutors because he worked for Republican Donald Trump.
They discovered crimes after he became a target.
“I take full responsibility for each act that I pled guilty to — the personal ones to me and those involving the president of the United States of America,” Cohen said in federal court in Manhattan before he was sentenced.“Blind loyalty” to Trump “led me to take a path of darkness instead of light,” Cohen told the judge.
Before Judge William Pauley sentenced Cohen to 36 months in prison, he said, “Mr. Cohen pled guilt to a veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct and each of these crimes standing alone warrant considerable punishment.”
Michael Cohen was heckled by Democrats outside the courtroom.
Cohen’s attorney Lanny Davis said his client will spend the next three months before heading to jail working with (composing) Robert Mueller everything he possibly can about President Trump in hopes Mueller can get him a reduced sentence.
According to Lanny Davis' statement, it appears @MichaelCohen212 will spend the next three months before heading to jail telling Robert Mueller everything he possibly can about @realDonaldTrump in hopes Mueller can get him a reduced sentence.
