[Ed. – Cohen reports to prison on March 18. By the 19th, he will be forgotten.]
On Friday, ABC News ran an interview with President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, who was just sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay almost $2 million in fines and payments for crimes allegedly implicating Trump. In the interview, Cohen told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he hopes to be remembered in history for unifying America against the president.
“It’s sad because the country has never been more divisive, and one of the hopes that I have out of the punishment that I’ve received as well as the cooperation that I have given, I will be remembered in history as helping to bring this country back together,” Cohen said.
When asked what he would say to Trump if the president were in front of him, the former lawyer said, “Bring the country together, instead of dividing the country.”
Cohen also insisted that the president has been lying when it comes to associations with Russia, and he suggested that his former boss is afraid of his testimony.
