Michael Cohen says he bravely turned on Trump so doesn't deserve jail time

Michael Cohen, the former personal lawyer to Donald Trump, pleaded with a federal judge on Friday to not send him to jail when sentencing him later this month.

In court documents filed on Friday evening, Cohen’s lawyers, Guy Petrillo and Amy Lester, argued that their client should not receive any jail time because he helped authorities despite huge pressure from President Trump.

“In the context of this raw, full-bore attack by the most powerful person in the United States, Michael, formerly a confidante and adviser to Mr. Trump, resolved to cooperate,” his attorneys wrote.
