    Michael Cohen Disbarred After Conviction for Lying Under Oath

    Michael Cohen, the former attorney for President Donald Trump, has been disbarred, according to documents released Tuesday.

    The development follows Cohen’s conviction on nine charges, including campaign finance violations and making false statements to members of Congress, according to court documents.


    The New York Post first reported the longtime Trump lawyer’s disbarment.


    Cohen is expected to give a behind-the-scenes account of what he will claim is President Trump’s lying, racism and cheating, and possibly even criminal conduct, when he testifies publicly before a House committee on Wednesday, according to several reports.


    The president’s former personal lawyer arrived on Capitol Hill Tuesday to begin three days of congressional appearances, starting with a closed-door interview with the Senate intelligence committee. The public won’t have a chance to hear from him until Wednesday, when he testifies before the House Oversight and Reform Committee. He will go behind closed doors again when he talks to the House intelligence committee on Thursday.


    White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement Tuesday it was “laughable that anyone would take a convicted liar like Cohen at his word, and pathetic to see him given yet another opportunity to spread his lies.”


    Lawmakers are alternately suspicious of Cohen, who is set to serve time in prison for lying to the House and Senate intelligence committees in 2017, and eager to hear what Cohen has to say after he turned on his longtime boss.

    My comment is not to defend Cohen, but it is to say this----I have lost all respect for Sarah Sanders. She says it is pathetic to see Cohen given another opportunity to spread his lies, yet she covers for Trump daily when he spreads his lies to the entire world.

    Florida Bar investigating Rep. Matt Gaetz for Cohen tweet

    By David Shortell, CNN
    Updated 6:02 PM ET, Wed February 27, 2019

    Washington (CNN)
    The Florida Bar is investigating Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz after his threatening tweet last night about President Donald Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen.


    Francine Andía Walker, the group's director of communications, said the Florida Bar received a number of calls and emails regarding the tweet after it posted.

    According to disciplinary guidelines for the group, which is the organization of all lawyers licensed by the Supreme Court of Florida to practice law in the state, the state bar's lawyer regulation arm must determine that an allegation against a bar member "would constitute a violation of the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar" before a probe is opened.


    On Tuesday night, just hours ahead of Cohen's public testimony before the House Oversight Committee, Gaetz -- a Trump ally -- tweeted at Cohen, "Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she'll remain faithful when you're in prison. She's about to learn a lot..."

    Gaetz later deleted his tweet and issued an apology.


    As part of their investigation, Walker said the Florida Bar on Wednesday would send Gaetz a letter outlining the allegation against him. Gaetz will have 15 days to respond.


    The Daily Beast first reported the investigation Wednesday.

    "It seems that the Florida Bar, by its rules, is required to investigate even the most frivolous of complaints," said Jillian Lane Wyant, a spokeswoman for Gaetz, when asked for a response to the investigation.

    A state bar investigation is not a criminal probe, and in Florida, there are further layers of investigation that the probe will go through before any potential disciplinary action is brought down by the Florida Supreme Court.


    Rules regulating the Florida Bar say that "a lawyer's conduct should conform to the requirements of the law, both in professional service to clients and in the lawyer's business and personal affairs. A lawyer should use the law's procedures only for legitimate purposes and not to harass or intimidate others."
