Michael Cohen: American attorney, just became Michael Cohen: convicted felon. As of recently, a judge sentenced President Trump’s former attorney to three years in prison for financial crimes and lying to Congress. His crimes included tax violations, lying to a bank, and buying the silence of women who claimed that they once had affairs with current President Trump.

Cohen’s downfall impacts far more than just him. Cohen laid a majority of the blame on Trump, and authorities have alleged that Trump directed him in violating campaign finance laws. Now, Trump’s campaign is being investigated as Cohen faces years in federal prison and $2 million in financial penalties.

Cohen himself states that his only weakness may be considered “blind loyalty” to Trump. However, Wayne Hills Junior Emma hogan thinks otherwise. Hogan claims that “anyone who lies to Congress and even more importantly, the country, should be personally held accountable and no excuses can be made on his behalf.”

Sources revealed that Cohen has provided information to investigators about Trump and his former campaign, allegedly speaking to any coordination with Russia to influence the election, but prosecutors said Cohen refused to tell them everything he knew.

More recently, with the threat of prison looming in the near future, Cohen has began increasing the amount of information he is providing New York prosecutors in hopes of getting his sentence reduced. However, he still refuses to discuss certain subjects of interest with investigators. Who knows where this trial will end up in a couple days, weeks, months, or even years?
