As you’ve no doubt learned by now, Michael Cohen, former personal attorney and “fixer” to President Donald Trump was sentenced to three years in prison by a federal judge on Wednesday, for crimes including but not limited to campaign finance violation, tax evasion, and lying to Congress. Or as the judge put it, “a veritable smorgasbord of fraudulent conduct.”

“If you ask me. He told EVERY Fn thing he could to save his OWN ass.. EVERYTHING,” he continued. “That MF wants NO part of Prison.”
