Prosecutors Rip Michael Cohen’s ‘Lies’ After He Pleads Guilty to Paying Off Women to Influence 2016 Election

The prosecution in the case against Michael Cohen spoke at a press conference on Tuesday after the former Trump lawyer plead guilty to multiple counts of campaign finance violations, tax evasion and bank fraud.

The prosecution explained that Cohen plead guilty to paying off porn actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal “at the direction of” Trump, with “the purpose of influencing the 2016 election.”

“These are very serious charges and reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over an extended period of time,” the prosecution said. “Cohen… decided that he was above the law, and for that he is going to pay a very, very serious price.”
