Cohen at sentencing says Trump was right to call him weak: 'It was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds'
By Emily Birnbaum - 12/12/18 12:07 PM EST

President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen at his sentencing in federal court on Wednesday said the president was right to call him weak because it was his "duty" to cover up Trump's "dirty deeds."

"Recently the president tweeted a statement calling me weak, and it was correct but for a much different reason than he was implying," Cohen said, according to multiple reports. "It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds."

Trump last month blasted Cohen as a "weak person" for pleading guilty to lying to Congress in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

Cohen was sentenced Wednesday to three years in federal prison for a series of crimes he committed while working for Trump, including campaign finance violations stemming from payments to two women alleging to have had affairs with Trump.

Trump's former longtime lawyer and "fixer" on Wednesday said he has been "leading a personal and mental incarceration" ever since he began working for Trump in the early 2000s.

And who really believes Cohen wasn't doing Trump's bidding and that Trump is just the victim of his sleazy lawyer?

A few more years of real incarceration will be a cake walk then.

So Trump was involved in the Taxi Medallion scam that got him busted?

Paying off Trump's ho's during an election is what got him busted. That's what gave prosecutors access to the records of the other deeds he did that got him prison time.

See. That's uneducated bullshit you are spinning right there. That is what is wrong with salivating over every rotten morsel the MSM spoon feeds you. Cohen has been in trouble over the taxi medalians for over a year ago when they nabbed his partner for tax evasion and he turned on Cohen. That is what got the camels nose into the tent on his business. Cohen is now hyping a bunch of bullshit about Trump to bail his ass out....

Michael Cohen’s taxi business partner just agreed to cooperate with investigators

One of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s business partners has now agreed to cooperate with government investigators.

Evgeny “Gene” Freidman, known as the “Taxi King,” entered a guilty plea in New York state court Tuesday as part of a cooperation deal, the New York Times’s Danny Hakim, William Rashbaum, and Vivian Wang report.

Freidman had been arrested last June by state authorities, on charges of not paying more than $5 million in taxes related to his taxi business to New York state. Now he’s pleaded guilty to one count of evading just $50,000 in taxes, in exchange for agreeing to assist federal or state prosecutors, per the Times.

Cohen has been in the taxi business with Freidman for years — as of last year, Freidman managed about half of Cohen’s extensive taxi medallion holdings. Furthermore, the search warrant the FBI used to raid Cohen’s residence and office last month specifically requested documents related to his taxi medallion holdings, among other topics.

Awwww..... poor baby.   Such a victim of all of that money Trump PAID him to do what the boss wanted him to do.  Cohen really needs a blankie and safe space along with all the other leftie moronic whiners. 
Time for unity in America! (better late than never)

Why was the FBI investigating Cohen that they were able to get warrants on? Stormy? No. Taxi Medallions? Yes.

Counts 1 through 6, or 80% of the charges dealt specifically with the Taxi business. Count 7 was making a campaign contribution (which hasn't been legally found as illegal because he took a plea) and count 8 was the size of said donation. The majority of fines and jail time was on the 1 through 6 that was the taxi business.

I have to cite it because Google has these stories pushed so far down in the search that it is impossible to find. This shit happened over a year ago.

BTW I stated what was happening here and that the medallions was the main issue. Did you believe me or did I have to give you a effing road map to the series of events? Oh. That's right.

@Frank Cannon

And for the charges against him being dropped from 5 million to 50,000 means he will probably get sentenced to time served and no back taxes fines for testifying against Trump. How can you NOT trust a lawyer in that position to tell the truth instead of what the political prosecutor wants him to say? </S>

Then I stand corrected.

We'll see what happens.

It pleases me that Cohen's hail Mary pass for a lower sentence failed miserably. 

Quote
Judge William H. Pauley III called Mr. Cohen’s crimes a “veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct” and added, “Each of the crimes involved deception and each appears to have been motivated by personal greed and ambition.”

[...]

In the end, the judge gave Mr. Cohen three years for the crimes he committed in New York and two months for lying to Congress, to be served at the same time. He was also asked to pay nearly $2 million in fines, forfeitures and restitution. The judge ordered Mr. Cohen to begin serving his sentence on March 6.

Stupid Bobby can take his Short Bus anywhere he wants, but at the end of the day he has a laundry list of pleas and one conviction for everything BUT Russian Collusion. All he has at this point is a leaky bucket of shit to take to a jury to get Trump on.

So far, we know very little about what the Mueller investigation actually has, because they have been fairly leak free. Anytime we do learn something new about the Russian investigation, it’s never what people think.  The FISA warrant was supposed to of been signed by Clinton and/or Obama judges, but it wasn’t. Tony Podesta was supposedly getting immunity to testify against Manafort, but he has been referred to SDNY for prosecution.  Flynn was allegedly railroaded and his son was threatened with indictment, to secure his cooperation. Surprise – his defense lawyers said today he voluntarily cooperated before any threat of indictment was made. Payments made to silence women and protect Trump’s candidacy were supposedly on the word of a serial liar like Cohen to secure a better deal, but at least one other entity corroborated that story. Mueller recommended no additional jail time, based upon the information and cooperation he received from Cohen and his investigation. For someone so ‘stupid,’ Bobby seems to keep falling ass backwards into the most fortuitous stuff.
