Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen says he has earned early release from home confinement

Source: The Hill

President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen filed a new lawsuit on Monday claiming that he has earned early release from home confinement.

Cohen filed a petition in the Southern District of New York arguing that he is entitled to time credits under the First Step Act, a criminal justice reform bill Trump signed into law in 2018.

Cohen claims that the Bureau of Prisons informed him on Dec. 15 that he is not entitled to any credit despite hundreds of hours of work and courses he completed while incarcerated at the federal correctional facility in Otisville, N.Y.

“This ‘calculation’ is nothing more than another delay tactic, as it goes against the plain language of the statute, as Petitioner is absolutely entitled to credit under the act,” the petition states.

it will drive donny mad. stark raving mad.

6. No.

Cohen should be free. He's served his time. Individual I should be in prison.

9. Cohen should be happy he's not in Riker's Island.

I have zero sympathy for that shyster.

8. Meh. I'm happy to see him drive Trump further into a screaming fetal position.

At least he paid some price for his corruption. None of Trump's other enablers have.

4. Do your 3 and shut the fuck up, Mikey.


Don't be greedy. You'll probably get some time out when you're called to testify for some of the trials.

5. Normally I'd say suck it up Mikey (even though if it were me I certainly wouldn't)

However, it would sorta be fun if he was able to get out early as a direct result of "a criminal justice reform bill Trump signed into law in 2018".

10. No.

Sorry, Cohn, but "coming to Jesus" at the 11th hour doesn't afford you much slack. You still did what you did. Serve the time.
