Donald Trump’s former ‘fixer’, who once said he would take a bullet for the president, jailed during a justice department-led inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
In 2018, Michael Cohen was sentenced to three years for lying to Congress and campaign finance fraud.
The disbarred lawyer is currently serving what remains of his three-year sentence at his home in New York, having been released from prison amid concerns about the spread of coronavirus.
He was briefly returned to jail, until a federal judge intervened and ruled that the government had made the move in retaliation for him writing his book, Disloyal: A Memoir.
Mr Trump has called Cohen “a rat” and a liar.
