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.
