It appears that Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who had his office raided by FBI agents in an unprecedented move, at the direction of witch hunter Robert Mueller, is going to be doing quite a bit of time behind bars.

After the raid of attorney Michael Cohen’s office, Mr. Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, questioned Mr. Mueller’s tactics, calling them “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”

“It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients. These government tactics are also wrong because Mr. Cohen has cooperated completely with all government entities, including providing thousands of non-privileged documents to the Congress and sitting for depositions under oath.”

According to CBS News, the former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has been sentenced by a federal judge in Manhattan to three years in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release for the eight counts brought by the U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York.

Those charges included campaign finance violations. Cohen will serve this term concurrently with a two-month sentence imposed for lying to Congress, a charge brought by the special counsel.

Prosecutors had recommended a “substantial term of imprisonment” for Cohen, who pleaded guilty to both lying to Congress over a possible Trump Tower Moscow project, and to campaign finance violations for paying women who alleged affairs with Mr. Trump They also think that Cohen is still withholding information. Cohen’s lawyers had asked that he serve no prison time.

In court Wednesday, Cohen, according to the Associated Press, said in his defense that “blind loyalty” to Mr. Trump “led me to take a path of darkness instead of light.”

Prosecutors said last week they believe Cohen committed illegal acts at the direction of Mr. Trump, named “Individual 1” in court filings.

Mr. Trump has distanced himself from Cohen, declaring his longtime former lawyer “weak” and “not a very smart person.”

“Michael Cohen is lying and he’s trying to get a reduced sentence for things that have nothing to do with me,” the president told reporters on the White House South Lawn last week.
