Micheal Cohen should serve a long prison term’ – President Trump Tweets about his ex-lawyer

President Donald Trump has called for a long jail term for his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen, who admitted lying to Congress about pursuing a real estate deal with Russia on Trump’s behalf during the 2016 election campaign.

Trump also praised another former advisor, Roger Stone, for refusing to testify against him drawing accusations of witness tampering and illegally obstructing the Russia collusion investigation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Trump accused Cohen of fabricating stories about his Russia dealings to minimise his sentence on multiple counts of tax evasion, financial fraud and campaign finance violations that he has admitted in federal court in New York.

Last week Cohen also admitted to lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
