Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is desperately trying to delay going to prison and getting a reduced sentence by any means necessary.
His lame testimony in front of Congress in February did NOTHING to reduce his sentence so he has come up with a new scam.
Cohen says he miraculously discovered a computer hard drive he wants to provide investigators he claims has 14 million files- including recordings, e-mails and attachments from his computers and phones…
Cohen says he needs time to go through this mysterious hard drive and wants to delay going to prison.
Lol- this scumbag is in panick mode!
Chuck Ross at the DCNF reports that Cohen’s attorneys asked lawmakers, in a letter sent Thursday to congressional Democrats, to write a letter documenting Cohen’s cooperation with congressional committees as well as his willingness to hand over documents from the newly discovered hard drive.
Cohen’s lawyers said they plan to provide the letter to prosecutors in the Southern District of New York, where Cohen received a three-year prison sentence on Dec. 12.
The letter, first reported by CNN, says that Cohen has reviewed only 3,500 files and is sorting through them to remove privileged information.
Cohen’s lawyers, Lanny Davis and Michael Monico, said that they hoped Cohen’s prison term “will be substantially postponed while he is fully cooperating with prosecutors and Congress.”
Isn’t that the whole point of this lame attempt?
The former Trump fixer is scheduled to report to prison on May 6 to begin a three-year sentence. Cohen pleaded guilty in the Manhattan case on Aug. 21 to tax evasion, bank fraud and making illegal campaign contributions. He pleaded guilty in the special counsel’s investigation on Nov. 29 to lying to Congress about the extent of his efforts to negotiate building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
The letter provides no details about how Cohen found the hard drive or what other information it contains.
Cohen has testified publicly before the House Oversight and Reform Committee and privately before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees. Cohen testified about his knowledge of President Donald Trump’s business dealings, as well as his involvement in alleged hush payments to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump in 2006.
Davis, a close ally of former President Bill and Hillary Clinton, has previously acknowledged Cohen’s cooperation with Congress was part of a ploy to reduce his prison sentence.
Sorry scumbag but you are headed for three years in hell.
I have a feeling you won’t make too many friends in there.
There’s a code of honor that you have failed to follow and prisoners, as well as guards have no respect for rats.
That’s putting it mildly.
Have fun a-hole. Don’t drop the soap…
