No. He made a sweetheart deal with the Democrats. He went over his "testimony" with Schiff and Cummins before he "testified." He admitted it. Schiff and Cummins are not his lawyers. This makes his testimony suspect.
You know what else makes his testimony suspect? Cohen was facing 70 years in prison. Now he's getting three with parole eligibility after serving one? That's illegal.
First of all, even if Cohen served all his terms consecutively, he'd still be serving 30 years at a minimum according to the sentencing guidelines that were set by Congress under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984. Judges are not allowed to ignore the sentencing guidelines. That's how a guy who mailed a package for someone else got 10 years in prison, because even though he had nothing to do with the cocaine that was in the package, he handled the package and got 10 years. All that guy did was take a sealed package to FedEx for his neighbor. He got 10 years. The judge in that case called the sentencing guidelines barbaric. Even the judge said the guy didn't serve ten years in prison, but becuse of the sentencing guidelines, he had no choice. If one is going to commit a crime, it had better not be a federal crime because you're going to do dang near every day of your sentence. That is what Congress mandated. It's called "Truth in Sentencing."
And then Cohen is eligible for parole after one year? No, he's not. There is no parole in the federal system. He can get time off for good behavior, but only after he serves a minimum of 85 percent of his sentence. That still has Cohen serving 25 and a half years. But he's going to get out after one? How is this justice? How is this right? How is it that Democrats on the Hill are just going to say the law doesn't matter. . . while we're busy prosecuting him under the same law that they just said doesn't matter? There is not a single judge in this country who would accept a plea deal like this.
IF Cohen were going to be serving a sentence that was mandated by the SRA, like every other person who gets charged under the federal system, and he were given a plea deal that reduced his sentence from 70 to 30 years, THEN I might believe what he had to say. But having your possible sentence reduced from 70 years down to one? Huh-uh. Something is way more than fishy here. Something is downright criminal.
