Michael Cohen has plead guilty to a pair of campaign finance violations, violations he made by making hush payments to women claiming to have had an affair with pre-presidency Donald Trump. Now he’s speaking out about it.
During an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News, Cohen remarked:
“He knows the truth, I know the truth, others know the truth, and here is the truth: The people of the United States of America, people of the world, don’t believe what he is saying. The man doesn’t tell the truth. And it is sad that I should take responsibility for his dirty deeds.”
Cohen cried afoul of Trump’s denials about the situation saying that, “He directed me to make the payments. He directed me to become involved in these matters.”
Cohen was sentenced to 3 years in prison for making the payments in addition to unrelated crimes of tax evasion, misleading banks, and lying to Congress.
