President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, has been sentenced to three years in prison for a series of crimes, including tax evasion, campaign finance violations, and lying to Congress.
Before sentencing, Cohen appeared to try to garner sympathy by casting blame on the President, saying that “blind loyalty” to him led him “to take a path of darkness instead of light.”
While most of the charges against Cohen have nothing to do with the President, the campaign finance violation comes from paying off what many call “extortion payments” to porn star Stormy Daniels. With the help of her creepy lawyer, Michael Avenatti, Daniels also filed a defamation suit against the President, which has since been thrown out, with Daniels being ordered to pay Trump nearly $300,000.
Cohen is the first of those within Trump’s “inner circle” to face sentencing.

His sentencing is sure to be used by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a win in his Russia collusion investigation.
Despite it having nothing to do with collusion, the mainstream media is sure to use this sentencing to make it seem like it does.
