Michael Cohen-Home Confinement

Michael Cohen, former President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, arrives at Federal Court, after completing his three-year prison sentence.

NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Cohen, who was former President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer until his 2018 arrest, said Monday that his  three-year prison sentence  — mostly spent in home confinement — was over as he took another swipe at his former boss and vowed to continue cooperating with law enforcement probes.

A smiling Cohen emerged from Manhattan federal court after signing documents and speaking with authorities about his upcoming three-year term of supervised release.

“I feel great today. It’s been long overdue,” Cohen said to a collection of camera crews alerted to his presence by a tweet he had sent Sunday.

Cohen was sentenced to prison in December 2018 after pleading guilty to campaign finance charges and lying to Congress, among other crimes. In all, he spent about 13 1/2 months behind prison walls and a year and a half in home confinement. His time was further reduced through good behavior.

The campaign finance charges came after he helped arrange payouts during the 2016 presidential race to keep the porn actor Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal from making public claims of extramarital affairs with Trump. Trump has denied the affairs.

First of all the "Associated Press" is Human Scum (IMHO) never forget that. Who cares about Cohen...Lets see Hillary behind bars....the scumbag is a liar and a weasel (IMHO). Seems that Scumbags create a bunch of laws, and them only enforce them on their enemies....That's how Trash Rolls. The Trash will reap, what it has Sown...you can count on that.
