Michael Cohen, Felon, Deletes Hillary Clinton 'Prison' Tweet

Cohen

Trump's disgraced lawyer appears to regret a 2015 tweet where he foresaw the former secretary of State serving jail time. 

Even as Donald Trump's cultists still scream "Lock her up" at rallies, the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to eight felony counts Tuesday, while his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted of eight charges the same day.

The irony was not lost on the internet; Cohen and Manafort regularly defamed Trump's challenger in the 2016 presidential election, former U.S. senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Twitter jumped on a 2015 tweet from Cohen where he imagined Clinton would serve prison time.

Cohen smartly deleted the tweet by Wednesday morning. It had read, "@HillaryClinton when you go to prison for defrauding America and perjury, your room and board will be free!"

Even as Cohen now cooperates with federal prosecutors and implicates Trump in crimes related to the presidential election -- specifically hiding payments to women who alleged affairs with Trump -- the "fixer" faces years in prison.

Aside from the furtive payments, Cohen pleaded guilty to bank and tax fraud; he could serve anywhere from 46 to 63 months in jail, according to The Washington Post. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, is getting ready to host fundraisers for the upcoming midterm election.
