Key Takeaway:

  • Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer of Donald Trump, will be released from home arrest on Monday after serving a 3-year term between home arrest and federal prison.

Michael Cohen, the personal lawyer of Donald Trump, will be released from home arrest on Monday after serving a 3-year term between home arrest and federal prison. In 2018, he was found guilty of crusade finance violations and hiding it from Congress about the business in Russia.

“I am done Sunday night,” Cohen told News’ Jeff Pegues on his podcast “America: Changed Forever.” “Monday in the morning, I will be walking myself down to 500 Pearl Street where I will be getting my release papers to; I’m not 100% sure which floor, and then I am released.”

Cohen said he has been kept on house arrest for 18 months after more than 13 months in federal prison and said he has managed to keep himself busy through podcasting, writing, going on walks in the park allowed under his confinement’s terms and the gym.

“The essential thing is that you keep yourself busy,” he said. “I’m just trying to keep myself busy till I’m free to start my life again.”

In 2019, Cohen was first taken to prison but was released early and sent to home arrest a little over a year later due to COVID-19 rules. After refusing his house arrest term in July of 2020, Cohen was then taken to federal custody. However, a judge ruled that the former lawyer could be released from prison after he filed a lawsuit alleging that he was re-imprisoned.

“I am very close, and I am very thankful that I will be able to celebrate Thanksgiving out of my home,” Cohen said.

In this week’s episode of “America: Changed Forever,” Cohen spoke about his relationship with the past president, his meetings with Kanye West and the indictment of White House adviser Steve Bannon on two criminal charges. The former lawyer discusses the charges against him in length and why he predicted three years ago a rocky transition if Mr. Trump lost reelection.
