Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, in solitary confinement

Source: Reuters

Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trumpís former personal attorney, has been placed in solitary confinement at a federal prison in New York state where he is serving time for violating campaign finance laws, according to his lawyer and two sources familiar with the matter.

Cohen, 53, was transferred on Wednesday to a Special Housing Unit at Otisville Federal Correctional Institution, a disciplinary section of the prison, the sources said.

Until now, Cohen had been housed in a minimum-security camp at Otisville, which is about 70 miles (110 km) northwest of New York City.

One of the sources said Cohen was placed in solitary after another inmate complained about his internet use.

Wonder how long it will be before he is found with his neck broken and all cameras disabled.

1. "after another inmate complained about his internet use"

 


What could he have possibly been doing on the internet that would bother anyone?


"Wonder how long it will be before he is found with his neck broken and all cameras disabled."

What would be the point of that? Does Michael Cohen have something to say which was not in his extensive records, his Congressional testimony, or anyone else he might have cared to communicate with since that time?

If the idea is that he has information for which the disclosure would be so damaging that the mere possession of this information is a threat to his life, then why do you suppose he is too stupid to figure out that the safest thing to do would be to disclose it?

7. I still don't understand

 


So, the sure way to protect himself is to disclose them.

Are his records of these "goods" kept somewhere else than the original files and accounts which were seized from his office?

40. I think that ship has sailed. Cohen turned on trump, he'll not be getting a pardon IMO.

I also think Cohen is in solitary for his own protection. It's offered to inmates when they are threatened, they can voluntarily be put in solitary for protective reasons. (Or so I heard from a friend with 1sthand experience.)

9. Oh, because of the "other" stuff

 


You see... even when all of his records were taken, and he testified to Congress and provided active cooperation to the prosecutors in other investigations, he was really holding out on all of the "good" stuff.

He keeps it secret so that he'll remain an assassination target. He just likes to live that way.

He could, of course, publish it all and be safe, but that's just not his thing.

A certain judge did just receive the unredacted Mueller Report. Maybe there's something connected with that. Or maybe something we've yet to hear about.

perhaps because the gears have been jammed purposefully.

12. Cohen should actually be in witness protection until Trump is out of office and NY can indict.

I seem to remember that the SDNY was not completely happy with Cohen because they thought he was holding back on something. I hope whatever records he has are somewhere safe with instructions to release to the press immediately if he dies.

Cohen will never be safe from him as long as Trump's still waddling upon the earth.

he was targeted to send a message to others.

And I don't think the words "charitable", "trump", and "barr" can be used in a sentence without a lot of qualifiers.
