Crowd Chants ‘Lock Him Up’ At Cohen As He Exits Courthouse After Pleading Guilty To Federal Charges





President Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, was greeted with “lock him up” chants outside a New York City federal courthouse on Tuesday after pleading guilty to eight counts of bank fraud, tax fraud and campaign finance law violations.

As Cohen exited the courthouse, people could be heard shouting “lock him up” in addition to “guilty.”





Cohen told the court that he made a $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels after being directed to by “the candidate.” He did not mention Trump by name.

Cohen was released after posting a $500,000 bond.

His sentencing hearing was scheduled for Dec. 12 by the judge.
