Michael Cohen is no angel and is guilty of the crimes he committed.
Still, there is something wrong with a Justice system which sent him to prison while his certifiably corrupt and criminal boss sits in the White House. For now.
It’s only 284 days until the Inauguration of a new President and Trump will be taking his corrupt crew to a life in exile.

President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen was freed from federal prison just before 9am Thursday to serve the remainder of his sentence at home.
Last month it emerged he has been writing a book while behind bars.
‘He told me he’s been writing a book and he’s pissed. He told me he is going to spill the beans. What has he got to lose now?’ comedian-and-actor Tom Arnold told The Daily Beast.
Cohen had told the publication in February 2018 that he was shopping a book and had interest from publishers including Hachette.
At the time the book was tentatively titled, Trump Revolution: From The Tower to The White House, Understanding Donald J. Trump.
But in December 2018 he was ordered to spend three years in federal prison and in February 2019 he was disbarred. He reported to federal detention on May 6, 2019.
Cohen had been serving a federal prison sentence at FCI Otisville in New York after pleading guilty to numerous charges, including campaign finance fraud and lying to Congress.
He was seen leaving the low-security prison in a silver Mercedes A-class sedan driven by his son Jake. He was not wearing a mask and was wearing a crisp white shirt with French cuffs and no tie.
Later Cohen was seen arriving at his Manhattan apartment, wearing a University of Miami cap and a mask. His personal items, including a box clearly marked ‘Legal Documents’, were brought in on a luggage cart and carried in by his son Jake.
The onetime-fixer was released on furlough with the expectation that he will transition to home confinement to serve the remainder of his sentence at home.
Cohen, 53, began serving his sentence last May and was scheduled to be released from prison in November 2021.
He had pleaded guilty to a series of offenses, including breaking campaign finance law by paying ‘hush money’ to Stormy Daniels to keep her alleged affair with Donald Trump secret.
