Michael Cohen Disbarred in New York

Cohen can no longer practice the law after a felony conviction.

The former personal attorney to President Donald J. Trump has been disbarred in the state of New York.

“The decision, which follows his felony conviction for lying under oath, was announced in documents filed Tuesday by Manhattan’s Appellate Division, First Department and the Attorney Grievance Committee,” according to The New York Post.

Cohen began three days of testimony against Trump on Capitol Hill Tuesday. The same man who was convicted for lying under oath now reportedly plans to assert that Trump has committed a crime while in office, though it is unclear what he plans to claim.

“Disgraced felon Michael Cohen is going to prison for lying to Congress and making other false statements,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said. “Sadly, he will go before Congress this week and we can expect more of the same. It’s laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies.”

After a felony conviction, lawyers are automatically barred from practicing. The formal disbarment is simply a matter of procedure.

Cohen is scheduled to report to prison on May 6 to begin serving a three-year sentence.
