Ex-Trump lawyer Michael Cohen back in federal prison
The fixer is back behind bars.
Michael Cohen, the disgraced former personal attorney to President Trump, was thrown back into prison Thursday for violating the terms of his release into home confinement, according to his attorney and federal authorities.
Television cameras caught Cohen entering Manhattan Federal Court for an unspecified afternoon visit.
But he never came back out, and one of his lawyers, Jeffrey Levine, told reporters at the courthouse that Cohen had been remanded into custody at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn over violating his coronavirus-related release from an upstate New York prison.
Levine did not specify how his client had violated his release.
A spokesman for the Bureau of Prisons only said Cohen had “refused the conditions of his home confinement.”
