Michael Cohen’s Conviction: A Very Brief Summary of Events

In response to Payoffs to Mistresses as In-Kind Contributions? It’s an Open Question

I thank Andy for the clarification below.  

So, as things stand:   

  1. Cohen has pleaded guilty to a crime. 
  2. Cohen has been convicted of that crime. 
  3. Cohen is going to prison for that crime. 
  4. We are not sure this is a crime. 

This is why I’m a libertarian.
