President Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen was disbarred in New York on Tuesday while in Washington D.C. testifying to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

According to The Daily Mail:

Michael Cohen, the former personal attorney for President Donald Trump, has been disbarred, the New York courts announced on Tuesday.

The decision was announced in documents released by Manhattan’s Appellate Division, First Department and the Attorney Grievance Committee, The New York Post reported. 

The judgement came as Cohen was behind closed doors in Washington D.C. testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee. He was seen checking his phone during a break in questioning. 

Lawyers face automatic disbarment in New York for a felony conviction. In December, Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felony counts, including bank fraud, tax evasion and campaign violations.

Cohen will be able to apply for reinstatement in 7 years if he has no other run-ins with the law. At that point, it is still under the discretion of the bar whether to re-admit him or not.
