JUST IN: Michael Cohen Disbarred Following Felony Conviction For Lying Under Oath
Donald Trump’s former-attorney-turned rat has been disbarred, reported the New York Post.
The decision, which follows his felony conviction for lying under oath, was announced in documents released Tuesday by Manhattan’s Appellate Division, First Department and the Attorney Grievance Committee.
New York law mandates disbarment for felony convictions.
According to the law, any lawyer “who shall be convicted of a felony … shall upon such conviction, cease to be an attorney and counsellor-at-law, or to be competent to practice law as such.”
Mr. Cohen can file for reinstatement in seven years — or sooner if he were to be pardoned (not going to happen).
Michael Cohen was sentenced to 36 months in prison for lying to Congress and other charges related to his taxi medallion company in December and will report to prison on May 6th.
In the meantime, Congressional Democrats have called Michael Cohen, a convicted liar in to testify against Trump.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Michael Cohen will testify Trump engaged in criminal conduct while in office — anything for an ‘anti-Trump’ headline.
