Michael Cohen plead guilty to two counts of campaign finance violations that are not a crime. "He makes up stories to get a GREAT & ALREADY reduced deal for himself".
U.S. President Donald Trump called for a "a long prison term" after his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen admitted lying to Congress about pursuing a real estate deal with Russian Federation on Trump's behalf during the 2016 election campaign.
Mr. Trump - who initially defended Cohen when federal investigators raided his apartment and office in April - has since appeared to turn on Cohen.
Cohen admitted making false statements about the project in 2017 to Senate and House intelligence committees, which at the time were investigating possible connections between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

A USA government plane has arrived in Texas to transport the body of former President George H.W. An invitation-only funeral service is set for Wednesday at Washington National Cathedral.
Cohen, once one of the president's closest allies and a top executive at The Trump Organization, last week admitted lying in testimony about contacts with powerful Moscow figures over building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Trump's post was part of his latest morning tirade against special counsel Robert Mueller and those involved in that investigation. "The President of the United States should not be using his platform to influence potential witnesses in a federal investigation involving his campaign".
The complaint was filed to multiple government officials, including acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu, Justice Department inspector General Micheal Horowitz and the Bar Disciplinary Counsel.
"Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!'" Trump wrote.
