President Trump, for his part, has strongly denied accusations of instructing Cohen to engage in crimes. The commander-in-chief moreover maintains that Cohen’s accusations are merely attempts to lessen his legal troubles.
Last week, Americans learned that Cohen will serve 36 months in jail. The crimes he will atone for include campaign finance violations, tax evasion, and bank fraud. However, the campaign finance violations pertain to payments made to the president’s alleged former mistresses prior to the 2016 election. Both Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels claimed to have engaged in extramarital affairs with Trump prior to his run for office. Trump, however, rejects McDougal and Daniels’ stories.
