Former Trump lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison. Cohen had previously plead guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion, and lying to Congress about President Trump’s business dealings with Russia as a private citizen.
Michael Cohen will report to prison on March 6. Cohen was also ordered to pay $1.4 million in restitution and a $50,00 fine. Cohen must also forfeit $500,000.
Speaking in court before his sentencing, Michael Cohen ripped into President Trump, stating that he had felt that it was his duty to cover up Trump’s “dirty deeds.” Quite melodramatically, Cohen also said that “blind loyalty” to Trump led him “to take a path of darkness instead of light.”
Michael Cohen told the judge that he takes “full responsibility for each act.” He also apologized to America, stating, “You deserve to know the truth.”
At this point it’s important to note that Michael Cohen is a convicted liar. One has to wonder what Cohen’s definition of “truth” actually is.
Leftists on Twitter were positively ecstatic that Michael Cohen was finally getting “justice.” Many feel it’s just a matter of time before Trump ends up sharing a cell with Cohen.
Michael Cohen hasn’t given everything up on Trump. This sounds to me like he is willing to do so, which means Trump will be going to prison when he’s out of office.

If Michael Cohen has been sentenced to 3 yrs in jail, that means @realDonaldTrump will get 10 yrs in jail!

Michael Cohen blames Trump for his ‘path of darkness’
I predict that in a few years time quite a few Trump collaborators will do the same.
However, it won’t work. They, like Cohen, will still be held personally accountable. https://t.co/LgvvBrdR6Q

This has got to be sending shivers down the spines (however maleable) of all those doing Trump’s dirty work now as well it should.

Again, I feel an obligation to point out that Michael Cohen is a proven, convicted liar.
The Left might not want to put all their hopes and dreams on a man who has been proven to have a malleable definition of the truth.
