NEW YORK — After ignoring questions about his former attorney Michael Cohen’s 3-year federal prison sentence, President Donald Trump breaks his silence via a series of tweets.
Cohen implicated the president during the sentencing by saying in court: “I felt it was my duty to cover up his own dirty deeds.”
Trump made no public remarks about his former lawyer until this morning by tweeting: “I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law. He was a lawyer and he is supposed to know the law.
Cohen, who is set to go to federal prison in March 2019 for tax evasion, bank fraud and campaign finance violations pointed fingers to his former boss.
In his guilty plea, Cohen said he was directed by trump to make hush money payments to two women who allegedly had sexual affairs with trump. Trump denied the affairs and any involvements in the payment back in April.
