- “There’s still much to be told, and I look forward to the day that I can share the truth,” Cohen said before departing for prison in Otisville, New York.
- He pleaded guilty last year to, among other things, facilitating hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal and to lying to Congress about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
“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,” Cohen, 53, told a throng of reporters in Manhattan before departing for the federal prison in Otisville, New York, about 80 miles away.
“There’s still much to be told, and I look forward to the day that I can share the truth,” he added.
His brief comments suggested that he had not said everything about Trump during his many hours of testimony earlier this year before several congressional committees.
Cohen’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, tweeted in support of his client Monday, saying “the truth has no walls.”
