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.

Report: Ghislane Maxwell Being “Moved from Cell to Cell” to Avoid “Assassins”
They fear another Epstein incident.
Longtime Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislane Maxwell is reportedly being “moved from cell to cell” to prevent any potential assassination attempts while in jail, according to an anonymous source close to the heiress who spoke to the Daily Mail.
Maxwell is being detained at MDC Brooklyn, a federal detention facility. It was originally feared she’d be placed in the Manhattan Detention Complex, the facility where the shocking death of infamous pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein took place. Maxwell is being federally charged with six counts relating to her alleged participation in Epstein’s underage sex trafficking operation, after being arrested at a remote New Hampshire home.
“She is also someone who isn’t posh or prissy. She is being moved from cell to cell and sometimes has a cellmate, sometimes not. They [the authorities] are terrified someone will try to kill her so they keep moving her around.”
The Department of Justice is taking extraordinary precautions in safeguarding Maxwell within the federal jail facility, doubtlessly seeking to avoid a repeat of the shocking Epstein death that continues to cast a shadow over the American criminal justice system.
The Daily Mail has reported on another supposed (former) Maxwell associate, who claims that Epstein’s former madame has video evidence of the billionaire’s elite political and financial connects engaging in the sexual abuse of minors. Epstein and Maxwell allegedly procured the footage for use as dirt, if they were ever threatened with prosecution for criminal activities.
Maxwell’s first court appearance is currently slated for Friday.
