Courthouse News Service

Trump, Barr hit with retaliation suit for sending Michael Cohen back to prison

MANHATTAN (CN) — As two investigations into the former president's business dealing appear to be closing in, Donald Trump faces a new legal challenge from his longtime ex-attorney.

Michael Cohen filed suit Thursday against Trump, former Attorney General William Barr, and federal prison officials for putting a gag order on him and sending him back to jail after Cohen criticized Trump and promoted his tell-all book while under home confinement.

Cohen, who pleaded guilty to lying to Congress and campaign violations at Trump’s direction, had served one-third of his three-year sentence at Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville, in Orange County, New York when he was transferred to home confinement. In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Federal Bureau of Prisons determined Cohen was at high risk for serious illness and death from the novel virus.

No longer in prison, Cohen took to social media in June and July of 2020 to plug his upcoming book about working with Trump. Just a week after he used the hashtag #WillSpeakSoon, the former attorney was hit with a gag order banning him from speaking to the media or posting on social media.

4. Sounds to me like

At least one subpoena has been served on Trump through a Doorman at one location and through the Secret Service at Mar-a-Lago.

7. He sure as heck is no hero

He was more than happy to serve his orange master as long as the cash was freely flowing. Only turned on him when he got tossed under the bus.

OTOH, doesn’t hurt to have him add to TFG’s legal woes.

8. Michael Cohen, who was sentenced for lying, loves to file lawsuits.

And none of them get anywhere. Cohen was in jail for 13 days because he refused to follow the conditions of home confinement that a judge set. Standard conditions. He left home to eat at restaurants. A violation. After 13 whole days in jail a judge released him to do home confinement again. This time he followed instructions and finished with it a couple months ago. This has nothing to do with Trump or Barr. It is the federal marshals and the federal judge who set the conditions of being able to sit at home instead of in a jail cell.

11. Wow... The facts do not support that nor your defense of Barr/Trump on this. Noted, though.
