Trump on Michael Cohen Sentencing: “Totally Clears the President. Thanks.”
Federal prosecutors in New York filed their sentencing memo for President Trump’s former-lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen on Friday.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not take a position on Cohen’s sentencing even though the charges stemmed from Mueller.
Last week Michael Cohen, 52, pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about his role in building a Trump Tower in Moscow – a tower that was never even built.
Michael Cohen’s lawyers asked for no prison time; Cohen reportedly thought Trump was going to pardon him.
But the liberal prosecutors suggested 51 to 63 months in prison when referring to the sentence.
Cohen reportedly cooperated with special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia witch hunt and provided information that “was ultimately credible and useful to its ongoing investigation.”
For this he will serve up to five years in prison.
President Trump tweeted about Cohen’s sentencing and the court’s findings.
It looks like Cohen may be on his own here.
Totally clears the President. Thank you!
