JUDGMENT DAY FOR TRUMP'S EX-'FIXER': A federal judge in New York is set to decide whether President Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, gets leniency or years in prison for crimes including tax evasion, making illegal hush-money payments to protect Trump during the campaign and lying to Congress about the president's past business dealings in Russia ... In a sentencing memo last Friday, federal prosecutors recommended a "substantial term of imprisonment" for Cohen. On Nov. 29, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump real estate project in Russia in the latest development in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Last August, he pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.
