Thread: Michael Cohen Sent Back to Prison

gina - 7/10/2020 at 01:38 AM

Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen was shackled by US Marshall's and taken to the Metropolitan Correctional Center. He had arrived at court with one of his attorneys to sign papers related to his home confinement which said he was not allowed to communicate with the press or release his book and he agreed to the ankle bracelet monitoring. He did not want a gag order on him for the rest of the 2 years of his sentence. The marshalls came in with shackles and took him with them. When they came he said he would sign the papers he did not want to go back to jail. They said they don't decide these things and couldn't negotiate the language written in the agreement.

Ironically or coincidentally the order for him to come to court and sign these papers happened the same day the Supreme Court ruled 7 -2 that Trump must handover records under a subpoena from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance related to the Bush money payments made to Stormey Daniel's and Karen MacDougal.

Cohen was seen at a restaurant near his home where he had a simple chicken entree and the NY Post photographed him there.

The question was asked is this action taken by the Bureau of Prisons under the supervision of Attorney Barr coincidental or is it retribution at the desire of someone who Barr reports to?

Why can't he be on house arrest? Just remind him he cannot go out to dinner he has to eat at home. He was willing to wear the ankle monitor or he would not have went to the courthouse to sign the paperwork agreeing to that.

His attorney said he never has seen an agreement where a prisoner is denied his first amendment rights, not being allowed to communicate with people or the media. [His attorney apparently has not seen Cia-FBI tactics used on people threatening, harassing them because they speak of injustices. Look at the George Floyd protests reporters being shot in the face after identifying themselves at least of 50 reporters etc.].

I hope they work out a new agreement so he can rejoin his family and do his time at home and then move on with his life, forgiving those who effed him over do that he can have peace. Peace comes from forgiveness, let your enemies be punished by their own anger. Move on and live your life with peace. That's the secret to overcoming your troubles.

He's already been sentenced. He was released from prison because he has underlying medical conditions that would make him susceptible to Covid19 & nobody wants Cohen to die in prison from that. He hadn't yet finalized the 8 conditions required for him to serve his remaining sentence at home, but he'd received several warnings about writing/promoting/selling a book. In NY state, a convicted criminal can't profit from his crimes. He'd been tweeting that his book would be out in Sept.

The guy's not smart. He either pretended to be or was remorseful re his crimes committed on behalf of Trump when he testified before Congress, crying, & begging. Now, he's got his swagger back & acting like he's above the law. Why these guys can't stay off twitter is beyond me.

I think the book he said would be ready for release in Sept. Is the reason he was taken back in custody not the eating at a restaurant. Releasing the book right before the election could damage Trump and influence the election. They will not allow it. They sent him back to Otisville.

He hadn't officially signed the 8 terms of his release, but he had been advised that he can't profit from his crime by selling a book (NY law). He never named a publisher, but he got warnings that he couldn't sell a book. He ignored them & was on twitter this week, I think, talking about the release of his book in September. When he arrived at the courtroom at the scheduled date/time to sign the terms, he refused. He also refused to agree to not talk to the media while finishing his sentence at home. Given his lack of co-operation for early release, he was sent back to prison to finish his term. He'll appeal. Manafort had been released earlier for Covid19 prevention under the same conditions & has had no problems.

Michael Cohen is an admitted liar so why believe anything he writes? Flynn's book is already out. Trump's niece's book & 2 books on Melania are all coming out before the election. The impact of any of them on the election is miniscule. Who cares if Trump cheated on his wife, his SAT, or his taxes. We all knew that in 2016.

He filed a lawsuit on Monday against the prison and the US Attorney General Barr because his being sent back to prison was for his refusal to agree to have no media contact, which violates his First Amendment rights.

He will be released between 12 and 2 pm tomorrow.

He only did what his client requested, making payments to two women so there would be no scandal before the election. He actually prevented election interference.

So, Cohen is now home after finalizing the conditions of allowing his to serve the remainder of his sentence at home due to Covid19 - just like Manafort.

He says he's writing a book. He has no completed manuscript, agent, or publisher. Under NY law, he can't profit from his crime; that includes making money from a book. Even a disbarred lawyer should know that.

Hehehe..."Droopy" Barr couldn't make this work, even given what a slimy, abject sycophant that he is----even a disbarred (no pun intended) lawyer could have told him so beforehand!?!! Cohen's gonna have a Sept/Oct surprise for our AmateurFascistInChief----and I'd say "Read it and weep" to TrumptyDumpty, but I know the orange oaf can't read!!!!!

Not true. Give credit where credit is due. Fascist Don reads in front of a podium at about a 7th grade level. I used to think it was about 3rd grade level. But I think hunching over the podium with head tilted and looking down has jumped him four grades. The irony is Donnie's criticism in years past of Obama reading from a teleprompter. On those occasions when Obama did read, it was hard to discern if he was reading or not. There's an art to this, and obviously Trump hasn't mastered it.
