President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, entered federal prison on Monday to begin serving his sentence. Cohen previously pled guilty to campaign finance crimes, lying to Congress,  and financial crimes.

As Cohen was leaving his home to head to prison the disgraced lawyer took the opportunity to disparage the president, yet again.

According to CNBC:

Disgraced lawyer Michael Cohen entered federal prison on Monday to begin serving a three-year sentence for crimes that include ones he committed to benefit his former client, President Donald Trump.

Cohen, 53, arrived at the prison in Otisville, New York, less than two hours after telling reporters outside his Manhattan residence that, “There’s still much to be told, and I look forward to the day that I can share the truth.”

After exiting a black SUV, Cohen took off his suit jacket and left it in the vehicle before walking into the facility at around 11:43 a.m.

Cohen pleaded guilty last year to campaign finance crimes, lying to Congress and to financial crimes.


Cohen cooperated with Mueller investigation while admitting to making payments to two women who had affairs with the president years earlier.

Cohen tried to get Congressional Democrats to extend his reporting time to prison, but they did not show any mercy on Cohen.
