Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen said Monday that “there still remains much to be told” about the president, as his feud with his ex-boss continues.
Cohen — who has previously said the president directed him to lie about hush-money payments and that Trump artificially inflated and deflated his assets to suit his own purposes — did not elaborate. He heads to federal prison in Otisville, New York, Monday to begin a three-year sentence for a series of tax fraud and lying charges.

“I hope that when I rejoin my family and friends that the country will be in a place without xenophobia, injustice, and lies at the helm of our country,” he said. “There still remains much to be told. And I look forward to the day that I can share the truth.”
In addition to the prison time, Cohen will have to forfeit $500,000 in assets and pay $1.4 million in restitution to the IRS. Cohen told the House Oversight Committee in February that Trump directed him to lie about the president’s knowledge of hush-money payments to women who say they had affairs with Trump. He also said Trump knew Democratic emails would be dumped during the 2016 campaign and about a meeting with a Russian lawyer offering dirt on Hillary Clinton.
