  • Michael Cohen stunned in court, sent back to jail after refusing conditions of home confinement

    Michael Cohen stunned in court, sent back to jail after refusing conditions of home confinement

    Former Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was ordered back to prison during a routine court appearance on Wednesday, amid controversy stirred up by photos that were published by the NY Post that showed the disgraced lawyer dining out at a Manhattan restaurant last Thursday evening.

    Conflicting media reports about the reasons for Cohen's reconfinement have emerged, with several outlets citing sources that said his refusal to accept the original release requirements, which included a block on releasing his recently finished book, lead to his re-arrest.

    “That was a point that disturbed him because he pointed out that he was able to talk to the media while he was in Otisville,” Lanny Davis, a Cohen legal adviser, said. “He said, ‘But the book is already done and I’m not giving up my First Amendment right to talk to the media, to use social media and, of course, to publish my book.’”

    Cohen later agreed to accept the requirements, Davis said, but was taken into custody nevertheless, the AP reported.

    Maybe the pictures of Cohen enjoying himself out on the town put the judge in an uncooperative mood?
