On Monday morning, Donald Trump’s former personal attorney and self-described lawyer will be officially released from three years in prison — the last year he served from his luxury Park Avenue apartment.

Cohen’s release after pleading guilty to nine federal crimes is rebirth for a man who once reprimanded and bullied anyone he considered critical of Trump.

He remained loyal during the special counsel’s investigation into the 2016 election, and he stuck to the idea that he would take a bullet for Trump. But that all changed after the FBI raid in April 2018 of his home, office and hotel room At the Regency in New York.

Cohen has pleaded guilty to nine federal crimes, including tax fraud, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations to help pay damages to two women who threatened to reveal past alleged relationships with Trump prior to the 2016 election. Trump has denied the affairs.

During his guilty plea in a lower Manhattan courtroom, Cohen pointed the finger directly at Trump, deepening the rift between them, saying he facilitated the rewards “in coordination with” and at his direction. He then pleaded guilty a second time, several months later, to lying to House committees to investigate election interference, which he also said he did at Trump’s direction.

Cohen sought to reshape his image as a new man, finally freed from the charms imposed on him by Trump. Setting a path to demand his rebirth and revenge, he testified before Congress, alleging that Trump and the Trump Organization manipulated the value of his assets to get better loans, better insurance, and lower taxes. In the wake of his testimony, civil and criminal investigations began in Manhattan. Cohen met with prosecutors in the New York area several times. In July, the Trump Organization was indicted on government charges alleging a 15-year tax fraud scheme. The Trump Organization has pleaded not guilty and the investigation is continuing.

Cohen, who had always courted the media, was greeted by a crowd of reporters before the reports were sent out to serve his sentence in Otisville prison camp, which has been named one of the “10 Most Terrible Prisons in America”. In a farewell shot, Trump promised he would not be silent.

In Otisville, Cohen worked on the prison’s HVAC systems and established a relationship with fellow inmates, including Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”

After several attempts, Cohen was released from prison in May 2020 due to the pandemic only to reverse that when Cohen told the court to end his move to home confinement. When he objected to several conditions, he was arrested.

File a lawsuit against Cohen, alleging that the Department of Justice, under Attorney General William Barr, had retaliated against him because he was planning to write a book all about Trump. A federal judge agreed, and Cohen was released to his home in July 2020.

Since then, Cohen has released his book, launched a podcast, and often appears on cable TV from his apartment to attack the former president.

Cohen declined to comment to CNN. But as he plans his next moves, tabloids will likely follow suit. twice last month, Sixth page of the New York Post I spotted him having coffee with Kane West at the Regency Hotel.
