A U.S. district judge in New York on Wednesday sentenced Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, to three years in prison on criminal charges brought by federal prosecutors and special counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen pleaded guilty in August to charges of campaign finance violations and tax evasion. In November, he pleaded guilty to a charge brought by Mueller’s office that he lied to Congress about Trump’s past business dealings.
