Lawyers ar­gue Co­hen should not go to prison

Star-Telegram (Sunday) - - News -

Lawyers for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s for­mer per­sonal lawyer, Michael Co­hen, say he should be spared prison for crimes he com­mit­ted in an abun­dance of en­thu­si­asm for his ex-boss, and they por­trayed him to a judge as a hero for co­op­er­at­ing in a probe Trump has “reg­u­larly ques­tioned pub­licly and stri­dently.”

The lawyers said in court pa­pers filed in New York late Fri­day that Co­hen, 52, has co­op­er­ated with spe­cial coun­sel Robert Mueller and New York state in­ves­ti­ga­tors who brought a civil law­suit against the Trump Or­ga­ni­za­tion and in­di­vid­u­als, in­clud­ing Trump.
