Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen released from prison early

Cohen was allowed to serve the rest of his sentence at home due to a coronavirus.

The former personal lawyer of us, President Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, was released from prison on Thursday: he was allowed to serve the rest of his term in-home mode due to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus among prisoners.

Cohen, 53, worked with federal authorities as part of the investigation into Trump and pleaded guilty two years ago to two separate criminal charges related to Trump. He was sentenced to three years in prison in Otisville, New York. Cohen was scheduled to be released in November 2021.

In his testimony, Cohen called the President a “racist,” “fraudster,” and “liar.” As reported, in conclusion, the lawyer began working on a book about his long-term work for Trump.

Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws and paying hush money to two women who claimed they had an intimate relationship with Trump. The President himself denied their statements.

Cohen also admitted to giving false testimony to Congress about a real estate deal in Moscow that Trump engaged in during the campaign.

Cohen, who was disbarred, insisted that the hush payments were made at the behest of Trump and that he gave false testimony to protect the President.

Earlier in May, former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort, who was sentenced to seven years in prison for bank and tax fraud, was released soon from prison. In American prisons, 50 prisoners have already died from the coronavirus.
