President Donald Trump’s former lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison.

 

Cohen said he took “full responsibility” for his actions while working for Trump. His sentence will be the longest thus far for anyone involved with the President or stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“I take full responsibility for each act that I plead guilty to: The personal ones to me and those involving the President of the United States of America,” Cohen said. Cohen did not speak to reporters upon leaving the courthouse.
He previously pleaded guilty to eight criminal counts brought by federal prosecutors in New York, and received 36 months for those crimes. Cohen also pleaded guilty to one campaign finance-related count from Mueller’s team, for which he was sentenced to two months.
Cohen will serve the sentences concurrently. US District Judge William Pauley described the crimes that Cohen had pleaded guilty to as “a veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct” before announcing his sentence.
Cohen also said he was living in a “personal and mental” prison since he started working for Trump.
“This may seem hard to believe, but today is one of the most meaningful days of my life,” Cohen added. “I have been living in a personal and mental incarceration ever since the day that I accepted the offer to work for a real estate mogul whose business acumen that I deeply admired.”
